    In memory of Jimmy Olson, I have provided a link to his story below. Many who now post here are new to the forum and I felt it was necessary to honor his memory. Although I never knew him, his brother was my roommate for a time at Watchtower Farms. Bethel, 'The House of God', is not a 'spiritual paradise' for everyone that 'serves' there. Rest in PEACE, Jimmy.

    That's so sad...

    Bethel always sounds like complete hell.

    Many Bethelites learned TTATT at Bethel. It can be an eye-opening experience. We had several brothers come back shell-shocked and left a few years later. Of course, jws blamed them not the organization.

    When i first saw this post my mind went to J.O. of the Daily Planet .Not to be.

    That is so sad,

    .I have heard reference to this case over the years but not knowing much about it .

    Thank you for posting this sparky1 ,and it shows the un-natural affection JW`s have for their fellow man and their spiritual brother.

    I knew Jimmy and the Olson family, they went to a congregation near me at the time.

    Me too, we all should. I'll be thinking of him, though I never knew him, he was a child, YES CHILD, victim of this Nazi religion.
