I was born and raised as a JW.
The place was crawling with abusers.
I myself was abused twice at the hand of a "Ministerial Servant"....
I have seen this at almost every congregation I have ever visited in their group.
I left when I was 21...that was over 15 years ago.
Since then, I have been to MORMONS...
and seen the SAME thing there at a group in Texas.
I have been to PENTACOSTAL churches and witnessed the same thing...
except their abuse is slightly different.
Their CHILDREN undergo trance like states.
THIS is NOT GOD.
I have been to CATHOLIC churches, and WOW let me tell you the abuse is APPARENT ...
not only on TV and news reports (which we are ALL full aware)
but you can SEE it as soon as you walk in.
Lingering eyes on children.
Some may say I am being too harsh....
But I LIVED this for many years.
My OWN father, being a predominate member of the JWs...abused my half sister for YEARS.
This being such a touchy subject...I understand hesitancy to discuss.
I just needed an outlet to let this out.
I have wrestled with this for years...
and after LEAVING ALL CHRUCHES, I NOW have a BETTER understanding of GOD and my place in the grand scheme of things.
MY place, is to FIGHT things like this.
WHY does worship of GOD involve such Terrible and pervasive things?
LIKE WAR and CHILD ABUSE?
In order for our civilization to ADVANCE...we must rid ourselves of RELIGION.
THAT is my conclusion.
THANK YOU for LISTENING.
