Looks like the wheels are falling off this corrupt organization and it's practice of protecting it's own image even if it means protecting pedophiles!

Was she a victim? Do you know her or anything about the case? If this abuse is happening is it wrong to bring it to light?

Or, is this just a typical response from someone who knows nothing about the facts but feels compelled to malign a victim because of their devotion to a religion?

Didn't I tell you that they would do this? So typical. Happens every time.

She alleges that she was molested, so she has to announce that she is filing a lawsuit with drums, bells and whistles?.

Where on earth is the respect for herself and the so called trauma of what she claims she went through?.

And i will be called the insane one.

I think she envisions a payday. Candace Conti's exaggerated travails have eaten people minds up.

You do know that for some people coming out in public is therapeutic, right?

So Candace Conti just experienced "exaggerated trials?"

Is this how you think of people when they come out like this in religions like Scientology and the Catholics? Or, is it just exaggeration and attention whoring when it involves your religion?

I'll bet you don't know any of these people personally. Funny how you are programmed to respond as you do in such a position.

redbloodrelative accurately predicted that the floodgates would open on the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society and civil lawsuits would overwhelm the wicked cult of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Children abused by religious authorities usually believe that God has turned His back on them.

They have a hard time coping with life in general because their impressionable young minds believe that somehow God is responsible for allowing their abusers to molest them.

And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Mark 10:13-14

Dear Lord Jesus, protect the little children.
Amen.

This poor woman will be emotionally eviscerated after this by any and all JW's and theur supporters who feel the need to defend this organization at all costs.

It's not enough that a person suffers physical and emotional trauma from the abuse itself. They also must run the gauntlet of humiliation and degredation by so-called friends and loved ones who are programmed to never believe something like this could happen in their congregations.

It's absolutely sickening.

Stan,
Your posting to a so called Father who a short time ago he HARASSED a poster named HOODWINKED ,posting this question about their INNOCENT CHILD ,***"Have you checked to see if your CHILD was MOLESTED in their SLEEP "?***
That was SICK ENOUGH ,however he then ended his CHILD Perverted post "L-A-U-G-H-I-N-G"!!! !

"EL Dumb Dumb finds INNOCENT CHILDREN being MOLESTED FUNNY "...

It's very SCARY to think he Also has THREE CHILDREN ,some Very YOUNG GIRLS !!!!!!!!

even the WT publications say that its not until the child victim reaches adulthood do they have the courage to do something about it, the shame and humilation imposed on victims by the abuses causes so much trauma its any wonder that so many do not come foward, and many don't because of what you have said here, it takes a lot of courage, instead of ones helping these brave souls they are being abused over again for doing something about it, being called a whore is something that the ped would make the victim feel like, very suss talk.

excellent post, and for many that have left the religion because of it, only to be called aposates for standing up to the giant and their lawyers, and its true they not only lose their innocence and trust in any faith they feel God has not heard their cries, hopfully this will help them to see that Jehovah has heard and he is their holding their hand.

Wouldn't that make you even a bigger fool then. You call someone a "publicity whore" when you don't even know if it is true.

That should tell you something about yourself. Your instant knee jerk reaction is to insult and discredit even when you know nothing about it. They have you guys trained as well as Pavlov did his dogs.

It's nice to see beyond the nicely dressed people who knock on your doors and see the pathetic mentality they display here.

Why did Mr Zalkin the attorney for the plaintiff put his mobile number on here?.

He doesn't know the assorted cast of odd characters who he is dealing with.

What an amateur!.

I really hope that is not his actual mobile number. He will have to forward those calls over to an answering service so they can do the job of fielding out the kooks.

Piss off, you despicable piece of flotsam.

I am sick and tired of you bastard JW's blaming the victims of your spiritual leaders instead of demanding that they be exposed to their respective congregations.

Tell it to the hand. Yes. She is a publicity hore.

Do you know this individual or are you just another rabid dog ready to believe anything and everything against WTBTS just because of your own personal gripes and prejudices?.
