Watchtower Faces Major Lawsuits in Canada — 4 Comments

  1. This type of action should’ve been taken long ago.
    But since it is in progress every JW should get a
    copy of the questionnaire.
    Two suggestions:
    1. Post it on the information board in every Kingdom Hall worldwide.
    (good luck on that one)
    2. Send an email or text to every known JW and ex-JW you are aware of. Link to the
    questionnaire or Barbara’s site.

    I have read/viewed many stories on various sites and You tube of those who have been assaulted.
    Fill out the questions and send it in. Don’t worry about the statute of limitations.
    What needs to happen here is exposure. Overwhelm WT. Inform the media. (Reveal, PBS. Your local newspaper). Get the questionnaire out there. Do it now. Stop this evil abuse of children. Expose
    the cruelty that ex jws have suffered and the deception present JWs are unaware of.

  2. Does it matter how many yrs back it happened? This is awesome!!!…How many fingers are now pointing at JW.org…this is not going away…”Dirty little secrets”…within …”Jehovah’s clean organization”… and we who were abused and are speaking out…are the ones they shun and mark and avoid…we will die as apostates at…Armagedon…while they, the abusers and those who covered over this and looked the other way, pointing at Catholics and other religions… will enjoy life eternal in Paradise with God’s smile of approval???? Hmmm…..? No amount of money can make horrors of abuse go away, this needs to be done…They need to be held accountable…thanks to all who listen and try to be of help.

  3. Will this be sufficient to bring down this “CULT” please, please can someone make of this the biggest head lines in the News Media. TV, Newspaper, Advertisement, so this ignorant religious people understand that this, so called religious is nothing but a Satanic Cult since its beginnings back in 1784 with the Masonic, Ops! “Moronic” Russell and Rutherfraud. Also, the government should revoke or remove their tax exempt status as a Charity since this people don’t help no even their mothers. Thanks to all the ones that are working hard to bring out the true about the “Truth”. DOWN WITH THE WATCHTOWER…….of BABEL.

  4. Advertise, advertise, advertise the Watchtower Child Abuse Cover Ups.
    Send an email or text to every known JW and ex-JW you are aware of. Link to the
    questionnaire or Barbara’s site.

    Note: If you are still a JW,active or inactive, it is suggested not to use your own email. Get a gmail with a fake name. Don’t bring down the Tower on yourself. Have a Non-JW friend send out the link to the ‘friends’. Contact your local newspaper; give them the link to this site.
    Do it now. Stop this evil abuse of children.
