A Canadian documentary production team has just released an English translation of “The Kingdom’s Dirty Secrets,” an outstanding and engaging video presentation of a very disturbing subject: The attempt to cover-up and conceal child sexual abuse within the Jehovah’s Witness religion.
KPBS Radio, a public service of San Diego University, interviewed Trey Bundy on December 12, 2016, and then followed up by releasing an online audio version of the program. We will try to provide the original audio when available, but you can hear it for yourself by following the link provided below to the original article.
[From Trey:] Today we’re launching “Disfellowshipped,” a 3-episode story about the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ practice of shunning, told in virtual reality. We designed our video “Disfellowshipped” to be an immersive experience, best viewed with a VR headset.
We’ve added JWVictims.org as a new entry to our page of recommended websites. It’s a well-presented news site focusing on child abuse cases among Jehovah’s Witnesses. It’s also a valuable resource, providing helpful information and supporting materials for professionals.
The Washington Post, along with other major newspapers, reported on November 28, 2016, that during the past sixty years in Australia not one of hundreds of alleged child abusers identified as Jehovah’s Witnesses were reported to police or civil authorities.
One thing for sure, unlike celebrities who believe “all publicity is good publicity” even if it’s negative, religious organizations do not want to be in the public eye – except when they can appear in a good light.
