I got up late today. I hear the doorbell ring and I go - not really dressed for company - I stand back and see a JW man maybe 60 years old or so.
At first I was just going to brush him off. I told him I'm not presentable and he asked if he could come back in a few minutes.
I said my mother is a JW witness and I've been raised as one - until my Brother in law found out about how the jw's really deal with pedophiles in the congregation. He came back with how the organization in their publications, are very strong against pedophiles. I said they don't tell others about it in the congregation. I said the ARC investigation showed they had over 1,000 cases that were never reported to the police. That means the police don't know to be able to protect others.
By this time, I was getting emotional. I said I saw Jeffrey Jackson lie to the commission, I know because I've been a witness for years (tho not baptized) so I know he was lying. I told him to look it up himself. He said I had all the wrong information.
I said after that I looked up what the bible said and what they said and they were wrong.
He says It sounds like you don't have any respect for the organization.
I said I don't. They let pedophiles stay in the congregation. And something about God not approving of it.
He said I will leave you to your opinion.
Of course, this isn't word for word. He said he had been in the organization for 30 years so he knew what was true about it. Yeah, just wait till it all blows up.
The upside is, he isn't going to come back.
