|Jehovah Witnesses invade private property with no permission
of any kind, by surprise, sometimes when you are not at home.
Often, they solicit home bible studies with children. Sometimes,
they come to visit when you are away from your home and
unable to protect your family. They have all of Bloomington,
Bedford, and Mitchell, Indiana mapped out into territories for
door-to-door canvassing, hoping to be invited to a return visit.
The law does nothing to stop this invasion of your private property, since it
is considered to be within their 1st amendment rights to solicit our
conversions. The only recourse that you have is to notify them that you do
not want to be called on and then they will put you on their Do Not Call list.
Inform them that Jehovah Witnesses are not allowed on your property. Only
by having notified them will you be able to put legal force behind your no
trespassing sign. We urge you to do this as soon as possible. Protect your
children! Tell the Jehovah Witness representatives listed on the right, or
the number in your local phone book, that under no circumstances do
you want them to call at your home!

|Even especially prominent JW
Representatives, Robert Edinger, for
example (standing on the left), repeatedly
intoxicated his son with alcohol at the age of

earned a PHD in Religion at the University of
Southern California, and is now fighting
back, especially because my mom has

I saw your site on a JW Recovery FB page and I thought it was interesting. I admire what you are doing. I am also in Indiana. I have no report
to make, I just wanted to thank you for doing this. In our XXXX, Indiana congregation we had an incident many years ago of a teen molesting
a child. The 2 families were at odds after that, & since the elders didn’t report anything, all that happened was the teens family simply
changed congregations. The child and his family did not attend any meetings until they were gone, and it was some time before they did
leave. As if nothing was wrong. The teens family was a favorite of one of the local elders and he never saw any wrong with the entire family,
as he had studied with them and the entire family of 6 came to be JW’s thru him. I think pride was involved in his not reporting the crime.
Eventually, several years later, all of the elders were removed at that KH, a clean sweep by a judicial committee. New elders were brought in
from other nearby congregations. All we know is that most of them can never be elders again. For various reasons. This was a few years
after the molestation. The elder in question re: the molestation, told his adult children that his wife of 60 years can never know WHY he was
formally removed because it would kill her. Ok, I say, WTH? He did something really bad then. Right? He wasn’t DF, and had to beg and beg
to retain his position as a full time pioneer. So, he did something very bad. We do not know. This happened to him about a year after we
stopped going, back in 2002. But he never did the right thing re: the child a few years before. So, I think that was still sullying his reputation.
He couldn’t explain it later, it was too late. So, we don’t know what he ever did so wrong. The teen/child thing was well known, so that was not
kept from his wife. He was removed for other reasons and that may have been part of it. But as they are told to protect the pedo, I think he
did something himself to get removed for. Having nothing to do with that. He is in his 80’s now. He also studied with my husband & myself and
we became JW’s in 1974. Thru him. A decision I will forever regret with all my might. In one of your protest photos in Canada, there is a sign
referencing Jim Jones. Wasn’t he at one time, a JW? So, he knew how to brainwash and keep people in a cult. He learned from the experts!
The JC Duggard thing is sickening. I also followed that story. I didn’t know they were out in service that day. Of course the news didn’t call it
that. I am glad they were tho, just so the JW’s can have the shame of that on them! They do indeed need investigated by the feds. I never
thought of them as trespassers before I read your site. That’s so true!
Nowdays, nobody wants strangers on their property. The JW’s themselves risk it by doing that. Trespassing is also a crime. So, they daily
commit crimes! I never even thought of that. I saw many of those signs in yards when we would go in service, but we were told it doesn’t apply
to us. *We were doing Jehovah’s work, not robbing and stealing*. But, how does the homeowner know that? They don’t! I don’t know if they
do much door to door anymore there, but here up north of Indy. Never see them. We left in 2002, for decades of reasons! and I have never
seen an elder at my door not once! They came when I was at work one day and my husband met them outside & told them what the deal
was. They never came back. I think there was a lot going on at the KH, in private, that we didn’t know about. So, they were pretty
preoccupied with all that and trying to NOT get DF’d, all of them! My grown kids at the time, 16 & 18, left too. We never looked back. In fact,
they were just baptized 4 mos prior to us leaving. We really blindsided everybody I am guessing. But nobody has followed up and that’s fine.
We are not DF, just stopped going. All of us. We have a much more complete life now, as normal persons in society. We have big holiday
celebrations, and we call it what it is. Unlike the JW’s, who also have the holidays, they just cloak it in secrecy and call it another name. But
we know, we always knew. We were forbidden to have the holidays with our real familys but they all have Thanksgiving together and x-mas,
they just call it Party Day and exchange gifts. All the while telling us we can’t be with our families. It has ruined our lives and relationships and
we have slowly tried to repair that. I can never forgive them for that and many other things. Thank goodness my kids got out while they were
still teenagers. Thank you again for being there for the kids and victims of the JW’s. I do hope you succeed in getting an federal investigation
going against them. They have cov’d it up long enough! Happy Holidays to you and have a great week. & Thank you for taking the time to
read a bit of our experience in the cult. GOOD LUCK to you!!!! I will stay with it for updates!

We, those of us who had this fearsome and violent ideology thrust upon us in our infancy, we are the victims of this fossilized, anachronistic,
destructive, and dangerous philosophy of idolatry of self that the JWs try to force with violence upon silent lambs. Your voice of courage rings
clear and true. In your own way, you have now become a Pioneer, taking your stand for the Truth. This is a much more effective way of getting
the truth out there than bothering somebody trying to enjoy a family meal or getting ready for work.
TORONTO (Reuters) - Spanking children can cause long-term developmental damage and may even lower a child's IQ, according to a new Canadian
analysis that seeks to shift the ethical debate over corporal punishment into the medical sphere. The study, published this week in the Canadian Medical
Association Journal, reached its conclusion after examining 20 years of published research on the issue. The authors say the medical finding have been largely
overlooked and overshadowed by concerns that parents should have the right to determine how their children are disciplined. While spanking is certainly not
as widespread as it was 20 years ago, many still cling to the practice and see prohibiting spanking as limiting the rights of parents. That point of view
highlights the difficulty in changing hearts and minds on the issue, despite a mountain of accumulated evidence showing the damage physical punishment can
have on a child, says Joan Durant, a professor at University of Manitoba and one of the authors of the study. "We're really past the point of calling this a
controversy. That's a word that's used and I don't know why, because in the research there really is no controversy," she said in an interview. "If we had
this level of consistency in findings in any other area of health, we would be acting on it. We'd be pulling out all the stops to work on the issue." Durant and
co-author Ron Ensom, with the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, cite research showing that physical punishment makes children more
aggressive and antisocial, and can cause cognitive impairment and developmental difficulties. Recent studies suggest it may reduce the brain's grey matter in
areas relevant to intelligence testing. "What people have realized is that physical punishment doesn't only predict aggression consistently, it also predicts
internalizing kinds of difficulties, like depression and substance use," said Durant."There are no studies that show any long term positive outcomes from
While banned in 32 countries, corporal punishment of children retains at least partial social acceptance in much of the world. Debates on the issue typically
revolve around the ethics of using violence to enforce discipline. With the study, Durant hopes parents will start to look at the issue from a medical
perspective. "What we're hoping is that physicians will take that message and do more to counsel parents around this and to help them understand that
physical punishment isn't getting them where they want to go," she said. She also hopes that countries that allow the practice - including Canada - will take
another look at their child protection laws. Canada is one of more than 190 countries to have ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the
Child, a 1989 treaty that sets out protections for children. The treaty - which has been ratified by all UN member states except for the United States, Somalia
and South Sudan - includes a passage stating that countries must protect children from "all forms of physical or mental violence". "If we had two or three
studies that showed that if you took 500 mg of vitamin C a day you could reduce cancer risk, we would all be taking 500 mg of vitamin C a day," Durant
said. "Here, we have more than 80 studies, I would say more than 100, that show the same thing (about corporal punishment), and yet we keep calling it
controversial." (Reporting By Cameron French; editing by Rob Wilson)

|Studies show us that the more sexually repressed the religion, the more child sexual
abuse occurs among its members. Phillip Garrido, for example, who kidnapped
Jaycee Dugard and held her as a sex slave for 18 years, was a Jehovah Witness
minister. Police were only alerted when he tried to take the babies that he fathered
with Jaycee onto a University campus to preach and distribute Watchtower
magazines. Do you want these people on your private property, knocking on your
door, talking to your children?
