    JAMES- Hey thanks. I'll post any updates I hear about regarding when this will air on TV. It was nice to see these abuse victims from all over the country come together and be there for each other courageously sharing their stories. I have the greatest admiration for them indeed. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    O.K. ! So last night after 14 ex-JW child abuse victims shared their stories on film in Sacramento to be aired at a later date ; my son and myself had an invitation to join among these survivors at a dinner later ....

    That is awesome.

    ON THE WAY OUT- Hey buddy. Yeah, it was really enjoyable seeing these people come together in support of one another sharing their stories. Hopefully more media coverage and more interviews will help expose the criminality of the WT child abuse policies . Take care, Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    The Attorney general in the Australian state of Victoria is introducing legislation very soon to require priests and others in same place to report child abuse as they come to knowledge of it..

    Hey ZEB- Thanks for including this information about what the attorney general is doing in Australia, very much appreciated. This should be a law all over the world in every country that priests and other religious leaders are REQUIRED by LAW to report child abuse to police authorities first and foremost before they contact any of their legal departments. Priority should be on protection and safety of the abused children FIRST- not the monetary , public relations , or legal considerations of each religious organization.

    This is what our EX-JW friends in California are trying to accomplish with the is to get legislation involved where these laws are hopefully going to be passed. And it's happening in other states as well in America. It's a proactive attempt to stress the importance of these neglected child abuse issues and how organized religions have failed miserably to protect their children from predator priests, elders, chaplains, etc. anybody who has abused their power in churches by raping minor children. Let's hope these laws start getting passed in the United States where clergy penitent privilege is thrown out the window as far as reporting child abuse. There should be no secrets that are crimes against children left remaining in alleged " places of worship " . Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    Thank you for that update flipper and I look forward to hearing / seeing more about the outcomes of this event and what it will mean for the survivors.

    The more publicity the better ,the Catholic church gets a lot of media coverage because its such a large organization ,however I`m inclined to think JW`s are in some ways worse because of the ratio difference .

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    CHA CHING- Indeed, it was such a worthwhile day and a beautiful coming together of these individuals who so desperately need support and understanding. And thanks to you and your husband for all the work you are doing in your organization to assist these people. Thanks for posting the link again.

    SMIDDY- Good points you make. I look forward also to seeing these interviews and hearing how these 14 survivors are doing. I feel like you, the ratio of pedophiles and child molesters is probably higher in the JW organization, but it just doesn't get as much attention due to the dominant headline grabbing rapport the Catholic's have with worldwide media. But I hope interviews like what happened with these abuse victims start getting onto mainstream media more often, especially Jehovah's Witnesses because it's such a huge problem in their organization. Needs to be exposed. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    California lawmakers have put on hold a bill that would require members of the clergy to break the seal of confession if they learn of child sexual abuse. Pretty sad. The bill is just on " pause " , it has not been withdrawn according to Senator Jerry Hill who wrote the proposal. There is a lot of fight coming from the Catholic church on this, so it's still a battle being fought for the protection of child abuse victims. The bill will be resubmitted with more added details to cover all the bases regarding child abuse.

    Here is the link that was in the July 10th version of the Sacramento Bee newspaper today with a quote from Kameron Torres an ex-Jehovah's Witness :
