The Most Hypocritical Paragraph Jehovah's Witnesses Have Ever Written


Photo Information for The Most Hypocritical Paragraph Jehovah's Witnesses Have Ever Written


Recommended Comments

From the article: "In Australia a review of the book The Battle and the Backlash: The Child Sexual Abuse War commented on child abuse by clergymen and others in positions of trust. It said that the organizations involved appeared to be concerned with limiting the damage to their own image and protecting themselves rather than protecting vulnerable children... Yet, many children who are abused never report the matter—a fact that child abusers rely heavily on. "

Oh dear. Talk about outta touch and outta time, you're still diggin' round in '99.

Twenty years have gone by since 1999.  How much additional cover-up has gone on during that time?  We will most likely find out...in the near future.   Mark 4:22

Get your yellow marker out, Jack, to circle a few more things.

A reporter covering the Montana trial attributed the present situation to JWs being “insular.” This is almost an inevitable consequence to being “no part of this world,” which Christians are commanded to do but which few other than JWs seriously attempt. Still, ‘almost inevitable’ is not the same as ‘inevitable.’ Just like software people issuing a patch for this vulnerability or that, the JW HQ has issued a patch in this regard—a study article to clear up any doubt that reporting to the police does not bring reproach on God’s name.

The reports of those who have suffered prior to this new emphasis, first stated less specifically in the God’s Love book a dozen or so years earlier, is all what is known as anecdotal evidence. That doesn’t mean it is untrue, which ‘anecdote’ often suggests, but that it is but a single example affecting only the one who relates it and thus it is hard to make judgments about bias. The “scientism atheists” that Jack represents generally reject anecdotal evidence if it is on any other topic. Tell them something about homeopathy, for example, or vaccine damage, and watch the veins in their neck swell.

Aren’t you ashamed of yourself, Jack? What kind of a liar knowingly and persistently compares apples to oranges? With the stain of CSA affecting every organized group on the planet, it has become clear that with most, if you want to find a bumper crop of pedophiles, you need look no further than the leaders. If you want to find the same catch among Jehovah’s Witnesses, you must broaden your search to include everybody. Watchtower elders and HQ staff may be accused of botching the reporting of CSA in the ranks, but rarely are they found to have committed it themselves. With many others, it is the rule. Nor do we only speak of religion. A U.N. whistleblower recently revealed that ‘wear a blue helmet and nobody questions you’—pedophiles seek out the organization so as to have access to children, and he states it is every bit as bad as the situation in the Catholic Church.

Do people only commit CSA if they are organized in some way? Duh, no. But unless they are organized in some way, the pool never becomes big enough to make a substantial fuss over or to attract the attention of lawyers. Arrest the individual, lock him up, run an article in the paper to say “And another one bites the dust,” and be done with it. It is only with organization that CSA can be magnified enough to attract the attention of the overall world.

If JW elders and HQ are accused of covering up CSA within the rank and file, have not other denominations done the same? It is impossible to tell, for there is no mechanism to ever uncover it. When a church member is nabbed by the cops for CSA, it is as much a surprise to the minister/priest as to anyone else. The only reason that JW HQ is linked to CSA in the rank and file is because they made an effort to investigate it decades ago, both as an example of wrongdoing that Romans 2:21-22 would have them police and to ensure that such ones could not slip undetected from one congregation and into another (as they could anywhere else).

You knew these things, Jack. You watched them develop. You are taking the lead in misrepresenting them today. I will venture that it goes back to the first paragraph: Jehovah’s Witnesses are “insular” due to being “no part of the world” and this is what riles you. This is what prods you to use a sordid distortion Of the faith you left, and lost some former friends for, so as to be part of the world. This is your revenge—pure and simple, for your former faith refusing to countenance whatever activity or view you came to embrace.

There are some who paint themselves as noble reformers. In the case of those who criticize as regards this one matter only, that circumstance gives them validity. But you criticize for everything under the sun, including some matters quite petty. What sort of a person starts 12 threads in a single day to complain about this or that minor thing with JWs?. I am waiting for a newbie Bethelite to have to wait his turn in the stall because a GB member is using it. Next day, right here on the World News Media, I expect to read: “Top Watchtower Honchos Deny Bathroom Breaks to New Recruits.”

... "accidents" notwithstanding ( or sitting down ...), not a problem ...... at least it can be clearly seen they are not wearing "tight pants".

      Nicolas King frequently sings with the Watchtower Chorus and had a supporting role in the DVD released at the 2014 convention. (He's on the bottom row, second from the right.)

      But he also is a jazz singer, traveling constantly performing at concerts, casinos, charity events, even a brief appearance on The Tonight Show. (Not much time left for service and meetings, now is there?) Besides that, he's hobnobbing with loads of worldly people, showing off on his Facebook page.

      I: SOME RELEVANT QUOTES FROM WATCHTOWER PUBLICATIONS
      1: The position of the Watchtower as regards smoking

      2: Watchtower criticism of the Catholic Church's involvement in the tobacco business

      3: Watchtower quote on whether a Jehovah's Witness can be involved in selling cigarettes

      4: Quote regarding not investing in "unethical" enterprises

      II: THE HENRIETTA M. RILEY TRUST.
      The H M Riley Trust is a U.S. trust that has the Watchtower Society as the sole beneficiary. Basically, it is a vehicle to make income for the Watchtower, using assets left by Henrietta Riley. The income generated by the trust is transferred to the Watchtower by means of a "donation". For the year ended April 30, 2002, the trust generated income of $1,740,127 and donated $1,945,645 to the Watchtower. In comparison, for the 2001 year the trust generated $2,939,731 in income, and donated $3,285,050 to the Watchtower. The difference between income and expenditure is made up by realising gains on the assets held.
      The income of the trust is from two main sources. The majority is from "oil and gas royalties." The trust also has almost $2 million of investments in various stocks and other vehicles.
      Figure 1: Front page of HM Riley Trust form 990, year ended April 30, 2002
      Figure 2: Second page of form 990, HM Riley Trust year ended April 30, 2002, showing primary purpose as "support Watch Tower Bible & Tract Society"
      As part of the annual return of the trust, schedules are attached giving details of the trust's investment income, and investment assets held at the year end. There are a variety of corporate stocks that have been traded and held, in such companies as Exxon Mobil, Coca Cola, Barclay's, JDS Uniphase and (ironically) Proctor and Gamble. It is a long list. However, here is an extract of the 2002 listing of stocks held:
      Figure 3: Extract of investment listing of HM Riley Trust, April 30, 2002
      One name that jumps out from the list above: Philip Morris Companies Inc, one of the world's largest manufacturers of cigarettes and tobacco products. Philipmorris.com states:
      III: CONCLUSION.
      The initial quotes showed clearly that the Watchtower regards smoking as an unchristian activity. Indeed, smoking is a disfellowshipping offence for a Jehovah's Witness. A Jehovah's Witness is also not permitted to be employed in the tobacco industry, even to the extent of working at the cigarette serving counter of a store. There can be no doubt that if an individual Jehovah's Witness invested in the cigarette industry, the Watchtower would consider this an unchristian type of investment.
      Yet, a trust which exists for the primary reason of generating income for the Watchtower, invests in a cigarette company. While the amount of the investment is small, it is not the amount that is the issue, but the principle: the Watchtower Society will benefit from an investment made in the tobacco industry.
      They will do this knowingly, because if I can get hold of this information, do you really think that the Watchtower Society doesn't have a copy of these very same documents? And while the objection could be made that it is not actually the Watchtower Society itself making the investment, but just receiving the cash, is this a valid defence? If they know that the money is from a source they have condemned as unchristian, are they not hypocritical in receiving it? Remember that the sole purpose of this trust is to generate income for the Watchtower.
      In fact, here is another example of the Watchtower's hypocrisy in matters of principle. That which they condemn other religions for, and restrict their individual followers from, becomes acceptable when it results in $$$ for the Watchtower Society itself.

      I was reading this week's study article on remaining loyal to Jah. Found an interesting contradiction on shunning. They cite two experiences. In one a JW shuns her mom and her example is posted as a positive one of someone doing the right thing. The second example however of a JW being shunned by his non-JW family is labeled as an injustice. Here's first one:

      So, the example above demonstrates the supposed loyal faith of a daughter that refused to talk to the woman that gave birth to her, raised her and surely sacrificed so much for her. This, the Watchtower claims, is an example of love and loyalty. Now let's see the second example cited in the same article in a latter paragraph:

      In this example, the non-JW family members were cruel, because they "opposed his association" and "forbid him to visit them for years". Yet, isn't this exactly what the JW daughter from the first experience was doing to her mother? only in reverse?

      I've seen a few JW's who are currently in good standing with photos at rap concerts and local bars with other non-witnesses and sometimes even a few other JW's.
      I don't like confrontation nor do I have the time to track down which congregation they go to or the addresses on where to send photos.
      Is there a way we could submit photos on here so that local elder bodies could follow up and disfellowship them?
      Sort of a JW wikileaks to clean out hypocrites?
      What do you think of the idea?
