CHA CHING- Thanks for posting this. Great interview with this elder . This particular guy happens to be a friend of mine as you might know- and he handled himself with dignity, courage, and valor as good or better than anybody else who would have been faced with the incredibly difficult task of staring down a man eating criminal organization like the WT Society. I'm very proud of this elder. Proud to call him a friend. These challenges remind me very much of what Lea Remini and Mike Rinder went through in trying to expose criminal behavior within Scientology.
What happens is when these huge fake religious corporations like Scientology & JW's feel threatened it becomes , " deny, deny, deny." And then people like this elder who try to expose criminal behavior get blamed and ostracized by the very elders he served with which is like a hit to his stomach as these were the same guys that USED to speak the truth to him for 30 years. It's very tough to see as an EX-JW people we formerly used to respect - other JW's or elders - lying to protect the criminal policies of the WT Society . I've experienced seeing unethical behavior within my own extended JW family and it certainly opens your eyes to TTATT.
Sometimes when we try to do right and stand up on the behalf of child abuse victims, or others who have been betrayed by the WT organization- and we get negative feedback from JW's we once knew- it seems like " no good deed goes unpunished " .
But that's not what's really happening. Many JW's within the WT organization are essentially mentally ill. Basically they are under mind control to be enslaved to thought processes that will not allow them to speak against the WT Society leaders. I would venture to say - that if Governing Body members were exposed in the media for practicing child abuse, murder , extortion, or fraud - many current JW's would dismiss the media news as " false " , " lies " , or as " media inspired by Satan the Devil " . These people are controlled through FEAR and GUILT to support Scientology or Jehovah's Witnesses views - no matter what. They are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome whereby they are taught to support and identify, even SYMPATHIZE with their captors - the Governing Body of the WT Society. WT leaders are people like the old expression of "misery loves company" - so WT leaders drag down every single JW with them into an unethical mire full of pig shit.
The silver lining to the cloud is people like this former elder on the video exposing this WT corruption. Any one of us as EX-JW's can be proactive in our exposing the WT Society for what it truly is- a criminal organization abusing children, murdering people with their no blood transfusion policy, and splitting families up with their shunning practices. Being agnostic as I am - I don't feel a " God " will do anything against the WT Society. But I feel the WT Society may eventually push their luck too much and bad Karma may bite them in the behind with governments shutting them down, or criminal indictments against them for fraud, child abuse at the top of the organization. I mean- look what's happening in Russia. It's high time that unethical organizations like Scientology & Jehovah's Witnesses get exposed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We have enough abuse of power in the United States as it is.
Congrats on a great video and if more folks keep doing what this former elder is doing in exposing this criminal cult - more people will be informed about how to break free in their lives and in their minds
