Child sex abuse among Jehovah’s Witnesses is pervasive. Here is an article located on a Catholic news website about the legal problems which the Jehovah’s Witnesses religion are now facing. This issue may or may not take some of the heat off the Catholics: Jehovah’s Witness leader urges elders to destroy sex abuse records.
I already heard something on the subject of child sex abuse among Jehovah’s Witnesses from watching some of my favorite YouTube people, (Kim and Mikey). However, the Catholic news has now confirmed that much by reprinting an article from RAWSTORY US. Interesting that the Catholics are pointing the finger at the Jehovah’s Witnesses, considering they have a sex abuse problem in their own cloistered religion, as well.
New Tactic: Destroying Evidence
After viewing this Video: Watchtower Leaders: “Destroy Evidence — Satan is Coming After Us!” I have a question for Jehovah’s Witnesses. Ahem, isn’t it against the law to destroy evidence of crimes? Additionally, what did you do wrong that Satan is coming after you with such a vengeance? Just sayin’.
Ex-Members Becoming Whistleblowers
I’m impressed with folks who left the Jehovah’s Witnesses faith. Instead of “dying” like they’re “supposed to”, they are becoming whistle-blowers. After all, many abuse victims exist among their number. Whistleblowers are exposing the religion’s corruption. I guess the top leaders of their cultish pyramid never expected the Internet would become a tool we might use to network with other ex-members. The religious leaders expected that shunning us would mean the end of us. Instead, we’re just beginning our tirade. Personally, I have a few questions about their fear-induced reaction to our truth bombs with respect to the problem of child sex abuse among Jehovah’s Witnesses.
- How did all that evil get into what members call “God’s True Organization”?
- What’s with all the child rape by adults in high up positions these days?
- Has it always been that way? Or is the problem getting worse? (Ecclesiastes 8:11*)
- Will evil beings win the hearts of humanity? Or will such pervasive evil somehow be dismantled?
- How come the mainstream news rarely covers this kind of story?
“Elites”? or “Bottom-Feeders”
Personally, I don’t understand how a civilized humanity could allow such atrocities to occur against our most vulnerable members — our precious children — in the name of god. Perhaps humanity is not all that civilized after all, especially since folks call the worst offenders “elites”. Such ones appear to believe our beloved children are to be used for such a selfish and hurtful purpose. Child sex abuse in religion turns honest hearts away from such a corrupt belief system.
Appallingly, the “elite” bottom-feeders of influence have even “softened” the meaning of the word “pedophile”. When you break the word apart, pedo means child — and philia is the Greek term meaning “love” according to wicktionary. Ask a baby or a child who has been raped how they felt toward their abuser. Likely, terror and pain is what they experienced — certainly not love. It becomes obvious to any rational human that adults are not compatible sexually with children. I put quotation marks around “elites” because I don’t view “destroyers of children’s souls” to be very high up on any social ladder. Instead, a more apt description of child sex abusers in religion might be “bottom-feeders”.
“Pedo-Philes? or Pedo-Rapists”?
An even more accurate description of a sexual abuser of children might be “pedo-rapist” or “pedo-sodomizer”. Obviously, children often don’t understand what is happening when adults rape or sodomize them. They often “leave their bodies” or “dissociate” when rape is being inflicted. Sometimes they bury the awful memories deep into their subconscious until much later in life.
Perhaps the rapists see themselves as benevolent — and certainly a child might comply. Most likely they submit because they are over-powered and overwhelmed by all the “strangeness”, pain, and fright occurring. Saddest of all, children who have endured rape may incur trauma that could last a lifetime. Yet, child sex abuse among Jehovah’s Witnesses is being swept under the Watchtower’s rugs. Most unfortunately, their governing body seems to expect that their public relations department will silence the issue. Meanwhile, the Governing Body of the Jehovah’s Witnesses repeatedly remind their members, “It’s all apostate-driven lies!”
Great Sayings about Evil
Will apathy at the top of the Jehovah’s Witnesses pyramid help the situation of child sex abuse in the name of god? Martin Luther King Jr. has an appropriate answer, “It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, ‘Wait on time.'”~Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches. In other words, “Stay silent and wait on God” which is exactly what JW elders tell their sex abuse victims. The last thing they want is an expensive lawsuit.
“The wind and the waves are unseen and seen forces in nature. We have the same elements in our own lives. These unseen and seen forces are karma and free will.”~Kuan Yin, Goddess of Compassion
Impactful statement, “The marks humans leave are too often scars.”~John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
And let’s end on a humorous note, “If you step on people in this life, you’re going to come back as a cockroach.”~Willie Davis
