Nice headline? Well if you are christian of course it is. Of course you believe that God yoked your union, blessed it and all that lovely stuff.
Great start. But what if that union was somewhat not all that it was cracked up to be. What if one of those spouses was abusive towards the other? What would you do? I know what I would do. Many people would (eventually) seek help from organisations such as Women’s Aid or The National Domestic Violence Helpline.
These organisations prove to be just a couple of the many out there, ready to help others and we know men get abused too but my blog is merely subjective of women this time because the organisation that I flame when they release yet some more, shocking material is anti-gay and expects women to be submissive to men. So sorry snowflakes if I burst your bubble a little bit here when I say this one is mainly directed at those women. The evidence I have is golden in that, it verifies exactly 100% how Watchtower feel about women in abusive relationships.
I refer you to December’s Watchtower Magazine which is the study article (meant only for JW’s but they no longer keep it secret because we called them out on their secrecy to the public) which shows just how much they applaud women who stay in abusive relationships. They also seem to think that it is only men who are not JW’s that will carry out this brutal, selfish, unkind and totally inhumane act towards their JW women.
I need to leave names out so I will call them Bob and Rachel. (Not their real names)
Bob was a ministerial servant in my old congregation here in Scotland and was married to the lovely Rachel. They looked like the perfect couple at the Kingdom Hall (JW church) out in the field service (JW bible bashing at your door on a Saturday morning) and at the group study on a Tuesday evening (a bible study which was parts of the congregation held in smaller groups at one of the JW’s houses)
They looked like the perfect couple, always clean, well dressed. He had a car a good paying job, they had a beautiful house all bought and paid for and she had the OCD of keeping it clean. I don’t know if she always had it. We knew there were problems eventually. She came to the hall once with a black eye, and sun glasses to cover it up. He got smarter and bruised her in other places which could be brushed off as an accident. Then one Thursday evening, Rachel was not there. We asked Bob if she was ok. She was not. She was in hospital but apparently did not want to worry anyone and that she would be out in the morning. He would let us know when we could come an see her.
Well, it was a few weeks before we got to see her and only at home. So we went, and she in quite a panicked state, said she was not expecting visitors, should have phoned first so she could tidy up a bit. The house was spotless. Gleaming in fact, probably cleaner than Buckingham Palace. It was so clean it was like you just walked into a show home. As far as I am aware they are still Jehovah’s Witnesses to this day. They had a daughter somewhere between the late nineties to early noughties. I have no idea where they are now, whether Rachel decided that enough was enough and kicked Bob out or go to one of the organisations (not watchtower of course) mentioned above to help her. I don’t know if he finally did it and killed her after all his brutal beatings towards her. I have no clue.
So I find it quite astonishing that Watchtower is even suggesting in print (even though all us apostates already knew this) that domestic abuse is not a reason to leave a husband. Fancy that! Getting the shit beat out of you by the man you fell in love with and are losing love for every single day, scared of every single day is not enough reason in Watchtowers eyes to leave? Like women who stay with their abusive men are revered to high status, whilst the others who left only get a quick mention? And what about the children who are caught up in the midst of all of this chaos in their own homes? What do they do when they see their daddy hitting their mother. What do they do when they hear her cry at night. They are just children and they should not have to continually witness such events because you told the mother to go back home with him and pray more to jehovah.
Watchtower just what the actual hell are you playing at? Playing with people’s lives in this way. And just before some “worlding” bites my head off for this and says well she should know to go to the police, sorry no she does not. Not in that organisation. Watchtower is literally God. The elders are revered to high statuses so they always take their problems to them. They don’t want satan’s media (according to them) involved. They don’t want more blackening of the name Watchtower or JW dot org whatever they are calling themselves nowadays. No. They call the Sweep It Under the Carpet Division and keep it secret.
I have literally had enough of this organisation destroying families. These women should be encouraged to contact the police, not go back to dear old hubby, and pray each time he raises his fists. NO! ENOUGH! Watchtower you are sanctioning the act of abuse from the young to the old. Enough of these human rights atrocities.
You can read here, their inane drivel for yourself.
And watchtower, before you have a go at me for copyright, well this is just an excerpt of what you have stated in your magazine. Just in case you decide to, oh I don’t know, delete and say we never said that.
FAIR USE ACT
I wonder how to governments of the world are going to feel, about this one. Maybe this will make them shut your cult down? A cult that is telling it’s members to stay in abusive relationships? RUSSIA WAS RIGHT!
