This has needed to happen for a long time, if only to let the victims have their say.

lots of people have been quiet because they were told that speaking out would bring "reproach on Jehovahs name". What a crock.

If anything, god would want the abuse stopped, prevented if possible.

Typical of most cases I know of. As anyone would blame Jehovah for pedophiles being in the KH, its because of the WT policy that these creeps were allowed to stay in the first place, so it is the Wt that is to blame.

When it comes to a child's safety, of course you should.

when you consider that the word "jehovah" means "god of mischief, you have to wonder, how can you bring reproach on a god with a name like that?

The organization rejects the GOD of Israel in preference to the god Judge Rutherford created out of the pages of an occult novel and named jehovah. Here is a little bit about the Watchtower Bible and Tract society's false god:

Maybe, or more probably because the poster had exceeded the allowable limit of spelling and grammatical errors, and the post made completely no sense. Yes, that's more likely it.

This poster is only parroting jdohe but is not the real jdohe. Suffering with an inordinate obsession for 'bad' attention,'bad' fantacies, due to imagined rejection by a parent, the poster won't develop adult emotions. To all who are offended, I beg your pardon. I have reported the poster.

Charlie Jones was just 8 years old when he was the victim of sexual abuse by a family friend. It happened when his parents left him, his sister and a friend with their “brother” in the Jehovah’s Witnesses a few times.

“He’d take me to the other room and molest me back there,” Jones said. This abuse happened on at least two occasions that Jones can remember, and each time the other two children were told that Jones had misbehaved and was about to receive punishment.
Jones said that on one occasion his mother came back and the man cleaned him up and told his mother that he was punished for misbehaving to explain why Jones was crying. Jones said that he was punished by his unknowing mother on the way home for not behaving as he should have.
According to Jones, a major factor in cases such as his within the Jehovah’s Witnesses is the secrecy policy. Jones said that the written rule for bringing to light cases of sexual abuse states that for any accusation you must have two or more witnesses, including the victim
