My Story of surviving child abuse in a cult

Just for reference I have added this recent letter to the elders of Jehovah’s Witnesses sent out on the 01/01/2017 – This may change.  If it changes, I will leave it in as an archive of what they did in the past in cases of child abuse.  I have made the text bold to highlight what the Elders (priests/leaders) of each congregation are meant to do in light of any alleged abuse.  This should say, report to the authorities.  Sadly it does not.  It is kept secret.  In my own case I was told not to report because the world is in the hands of the wicked one (the devil) and because of this, all police, social work, the government of the country you reside in are under the control of the devil in the JW’s eyes.

*Editors note – I have had to take the letter out of this blog apparently due to copyright reasons *smh*

So here is a link to their child safeguarding policy.

I refer to point 5

5. When elders learn of an accusation of child abuse, they immediately consult with the branch
office of Jehovah’s Witnesses to ensure compliance with child abuse reporting laws.

Here I have fixed it for you.

5. When elders learn of an accusation of child abuse,

they immediately consult with law enforcement, then contact the branch office of Jehovah’s Witness.

Father’s Day!

2e58a46d45b2f16bfa2994bcc80bf7dc

Today on the 17th June 2018 is father’s day.  The kids have all this excitement in them, to treat the man that fathered them and still is to this day.  I have seen this happen in front of my own eyes with my own little cherubs.  Their faces light up with pride and happiness, giving their father a gift is a special thing.  But the relationship between father and son and father and daughter is unlike any other.  It’s knowing Daddy will sort it.  It’s knowing that he will always be there, protecting the home, shooting the imaginary monsters hiding in the cupboard and being childlike whilst also being able to pull off that serious demeanour when they have done something naughty.

After I went public

normal_northayrshire

This is my story to tell and I have told it.

I told some of it to Betsan Powys, a reporter for the BBC.  I appeared anonymously on Panorama Suffer the little children.   It aired in 2002.

Why did I go anonymous? Simply because I was ashamed.  I was ashamed this had happened to me.  I felt somewhat guilty, because that was what I was made to feel by the shepherds called Elders who lorded over the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses I was part of.  That imprinting stuck with me right on into my adult years.

Finally, 15 years on from this I went completely public with my story here.

I was asked many questions from family members why now? Why did I do this?  After all this time surely I would be able to put this all to bed.  He’s been convicted, he has paid his dues, his time in prison etc etc.

Why did I do this?

Jehovah’s Witness Bullies me and others online! #BeKind

When we were young we had a saying

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”

How untrue those last words from the rhyme are.  In the age of social media, people getting access to the internet words can equally kill you.   The internet is a great place for people to relax and air their baggage.  But it is equally a dangerous place if the person wielding it, use it to hurt, maim and attack.

Two imagination works for after Armageddon.

I came across a story some years ago here and thought it would be interesting to share with the public just how the mindset of a JW is, in reference to Armageddon.

Armageddon to JW’s is the war of God.  He will rain down fire and brimstone and all the wicked will be destroyed.  The JW, will work hard for the organisation because when that day comes in their mind, they don’t want to be caught out doing nothing.

I am going to split this into 2 parts.  Because there are actually 2 stories.

The first one comes from the imaginations of former JW Michael R Pendley.  The second one comes from a JW.

New Jehovah’s Witness wants to be removed from the UK sex offenders database.

I cannot even begin to fathom my disgust at this individual and what he did to young children.

Meet Steven Robinson.  A man who used to be a care worker.  A CARE WORKER!

FACT!  He abused an innocent disabled young girl who was aged 5.

FACT!  He had several filthy images on his computer that had been seized by police here in the UK in 2014.

FACT!  He has now fled to Spain.

FACT! He now purports that he is one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and therefore no longer needs to be on the database as he has changed his life.  He claims that he has turned his life around and has not committed any offences for over 10 years.

Human Rights Day

One of our friends has written an absolutely excellent piece on Human Rights.  Seeing as it is Human Rights Day today, I thought I would share it with everyone.

I think Sam has written out an excellent article here, highlighting human rights atrocities perpetuated by the cult Jehovah’s Witnesses and it’s parent company JW.org and Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.

So Watchtower, which is it?

I have just seen a video from Canada where someone has taken the Watchtower to court over Disfellowshipping (Ex-Communication)

Did you get that?  That disfellowshipping is just a spiritual disfellowship?  That members of family of the disfellowshipped person can still have a physical and emotional relationship with their family members who are Jehovah’s Witnesses?

Now whilst I absolutely abhor what the person had been disfellowshipped for, and quite rightly so, I cannot even begin to think why this lawyer would lie like this?  Does he know he could be in contempt of court for doing so?

Who is right?  The lawyer from Watchtower?  Or the Watchtower themselves.
