    Matthew 19:14: "Let the little children come to me,"

    is often used to prove that Jesus cares about little children. Pretty images of Jesus hugging kids proves nothing, if within the organisation he controls, he does nothing to protect the innocent.

    So does Jesus care?

    Matthew 28:20 also says:

    "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

    By which we understand Jesus claims ownership of his organisation (church). He is ultimately responsible for what happens within his church. So within that church, has he demonstrated his concern, care and protection for little children. The simple answer is NO!

    All the scandals connected to child abuse by his appointed officials demonstrate that he does not give a dam.

    Think of this revelation in the Australian Inquiry into Child Abuse (particularly within religious organisations).

    The Hunter region just north of Sydney, centred on Newcastle, has a population of around 600,000. Within that area, at least 80 Catholic and Anglican priests are alleged to have committed child sex crimes.

    So what did Jesus, or his father in heaven, do? Absolutely nothing!

    Quote: "the shocking figure includes claims and substantiated complaints against 51 alleged and convicted Hunter Catholic offenders from the 1940s to the 1990s, including 19 priests, 20 Marist Brothers, and 12 teachers, employees and volunteers, a report by the royal commission has found."


    I do not believe that any mythical religious figures actually exist, but how can any of the myriads of believers really imagine that their mythical divinities really exercise any love or compassion?

    It is not only within the JWs that this problem exists, but within all Christian denominations, and elsewhere for the problem also exists with groups like Buddhists.

    Learn a lesson: God (if he existed) does not give a sh*t about you.

    If the children came he would sell them off as slaves.

    This is where "The True Believers" will resort to the claim that it's an organization of imperfect men, conveniently forgetting all their claims to be spirit directed and the faithful and discreet slave, appointed by god, yada yada.

    So why can't god and the holy spirt, that can supposedly look into people's hearts, see through walls and all that super-hero nonsense, figure out who should and shouldn't be appointed to positions of responsibility?

    Trying to pin them down to anything is like nailing jelly to the wall. They flip and flop like Kellyanne Conway (Skeletor Barbie)

    Come to think of it, Kellyanne Conway's hair does resemble the one of some of the Jesus paintings. Coincidence? I think not!
