Elsewhere's question is bravely answered with a resounding "YES!!!, they are f*cking morons".
And it's not just because of the "obey" the father, "obey" the elder, "obey" the WTBTS...... the whole belief structure is to blame. Corvin, I think, will understand more than anyone what I speak of.
Where the hell else in society would somebody get away with this?
These f*cking elders would do anything to protect their own chidren, (assuming that they have a conscience) yet they pass it off as being more important to "save" people from this evil world as it is to protect the defenseless, the children from these predators.
My in-laws (JW's) have tried to frame me for sexually assaulting my child, and in an effort to "prove" this they have done things to my daughter to make the false accusation look legit. Whether they are "guilty" of a criminal offense or not is for others to determine, if they choose to do so.
But I went to an elder and told him flat out that I didn't respect their belief structure enough to be saying this to have my ex-mother-in-law punished through their disciplinary structure. I was, however, pleading with him to do whatever he could to protect my children. He went to speak to her and she said, "Mind your own business." He did. When the hell would they ever listen to a follower saying that? Never!!!! Unless it could tarnish the "society".
We must all feel sorry for the WTBTS, for if my daughter was sexually assaulted by them, it would make them "look" bad. Pardon the language, but at what point do the f*cking a**holes realize that there is a victim here, and it's not the WTBTS!!!!!!!!!!!????????????
Same with the victims in this case cited. These people forget about what happened to the victims. The guy spent time in prison. He must have been guilty of it, yet nothing is mentioned about that. His lawyer doesn't even state that he was wrongly accused. I was wrongly accused and I will die before I submit to my accusers. Yet that is not present here.
