  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this!!! I have waited 29 years for some exposure to this!(It will be 29 years to the day on the 29 of this month) No one has spoken openly about any of this the whole time!!! People are led to believe they died in a car crash or other, if they know they (Kim, Juri and Lindsay are dead)! Mr.James Kostelniuk if you are reading this from the bottom of my heart your children were loved!!!!!!! I am one of the kids in the Congregation, me and my sister’s loved them very, very much!!!!!! We spoke of them a lot, sadly it was non-witnesses who wanted to hear!!!!!

  2. Im in tears. ive been out 20 years after being born and raised in ‘it’, the first 32 years of my life. Spent many years deprogramming myself and my children. Im still sickened by it all. I knew nothing else. How can this be? My entire family is locked into this and they think IM THE BAD GUY. demonized. ugh. at any rate this is all encouraging. thank “god” for the internet and the information highway .

  3. I feel so frustrated since yesterday and today I had forgotten to tape this episode. I have it taped for this Saturday. One thing I have had the chance to personally see is how Barbara only speaks in facts. Doesn’t matter what people presume, when I have asked her opinion on anything she will go for facts only. So in as much as you might seem educated in your speaking of Barbara, it just shows inadequacies in that respect. But more knowledge will help you in the future I feel on being able to say things yourself correctly. I know for myself, when I was interviewed by a newspaper, things that I said were turned around, not in that it was done on purpose, but they wrote a few facts wrong. People just need to be able to see the whole picture, not nit picking on small little facts to find fault when someone is trying so hard and doing so much,,( something people sitting and criticizing themselves) are not capable.of. I can’t wait to see the episode on Saturday. EllaElla

  4. My eyes were opened after 55 years in “The Truth”. Where my parents and I attended Brooklyn Center Congregation. Harry Peloyan, Congregation Servant was my dad’s teacher. Love abounded in Jehovahs organization. Somehow I managed to believe nothing had changed until in 2005′ when my elder husband of 35 years committed adultery and despite my willingness to forgive, chose to persue the adulterous relationship and disfellowshipping. As though that was not shocking enough, the news spread like wildfire throughout South Georgia. A very popular brother’s wife had him disfellowshipped. Despite my innocence, my local body of elders have yet to shepherd me, forcing me to leave the congregation only to receive similar treatments elsewhere. He has since remarried, though he obtained an unscriptural divorce from me, and has recently given a public talk as an outgoing speaker. It’s been 10 years and still no shepherding call. I tried to remain a part of the congregation…. Any congregation, but am still an outcast, even by local elders as far as 150 miles where my mom attends.

    The behavior on the part of the elders in the documentary account only emphasizes the need for a major shake up in the Organization. Surely the death of a family at the hands of this loyal servant is not what Jehovah wants. Please read about the family in Witness family in South Carolina who were murdered by the husband.

  5. I was in NYC this past weekend going to the statute of liberty and looked over on Brooklyn side…and low and behold there’s the sign for Watchtower. Makes me shiver. My dad was a JW…after divorcing my mom, remarried, and cut off communication between my mom and my brother and I. After we got out, we reconnected with our mom and after nearly 30 years, my dad still has nothing to do with us and is of course a well regarded elder. There’s no need for a major shakeup in the organization … it’s a occult without a compound, and is what it is and they are who they are.
