According to The Great Apostate, who spent time with police officers at the protest, they informed him that it was not Watchtower who called the police in but another exJW who briefly attended the protest and subsequently disapproved of the protesters methods...CLAIMING they were being "violent".
I find this very difficult to understand. Anyone who saw the bravery of the women who stood up in the Kingdom hall and told the story of their abuse and rape could not fail to feel compassion and offer their support.
I know there are posters on this forum who disagree with me.They worry that such protests play into Watchtowers "persecution" complex, and naturally I understand their position.
But really, how long do we have to fear their power over their members, and through their members, us.. Many jw's simply do not know the extent of the paedophile problem,.They do not know about Malawi, the UN, the bloodless surgery guinea pig deaths ( thank you ORPHAN CROW), the suicides....I simply don't believe that protests don't work....if there are enough of them, and they are organized, and most of all if we are United...we shall make a difference, and that difference may be your loved one.
