[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.
On August 27, 2016 Joe Anderson was interviewed by “Randy M” on Rick Fearon’s “Watchtower Behind Closed Doors” SOUNDCLOUD channel. Joe is, of course, Barbara Anderson’s spouse and best friend – enjoying a very close and loving relationship for many years. Joe shares many experiences as both an active and former Jehovah’s Witness.
The National Post, a Canadian online news service, reported that a ruling by the Alberta Court of Appeal states that secular courts have the authority to overturn religious edicts in certain situations. That court will allow a Calgary resident to challenge his being disfellowshipped and shunned by his Jehovah’s Witnesses congregation.
For years we have warned that Jehovah’s Witness pedophiles “could be knocking on doors in your neighborhood” – putting your children and those of your neighbors in unthinkable danger.
It finally happened and it was caught on video.
A middle-aged male Jehovah’s Witness identified as a “publicly registered pedophile” was caught going door-to-door in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Challenging the accusation, he claimed it was all “just a mistake.”
Jeremy Vine, a featured interviewer for the UK’s BBC media network, invited former Jehovah’s Witness Naomi Rowling to share her childhood and life experiences. Her honest and revealing life story is very similar to those of thousands of JW children past and present.
During the interview, Ms. Rowling is calm, clear and precise in her recollection of her childhood experiences. She explains how her life lacked opportunity, outside relationships and holidays. She also provides a very clear and somewhat alarming overview of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ beliefs and their organization. She stays on subject and remains focused throughout. Very few short interviews offer such a high level of revealing and accurate information.
In 2002, Robert Bryant, at one time a highly respected Jehovah’s Witness elder, murdered his wife and four children and then killed himself in McMinnville, Oregon. Why would this wonderful and hard-working family man do such a terrible thing? What happened that drove him to commit such a horrible crime?
