The End of False Religion is Near!
The heading above is the title of the recent tract distributed by Jehovah’s Witnesses. The worldwide campaign started on October 16, 2006 and ended on November 12, 2006. The tract known as KN 37 (Kingdom News 37) focused on several “traits” that would be manifested by “false” religion that included various doctrinal issues along with a key statement on morality. Note the excerpt below,
As the reader can see with the picture of a clergyman, a scathing denunciation is offered to any religion that tolerates gays and the sexual abuse of children. This stunning display of hypocrisy is a slap in the face of the public. Jehovah’s Witnesses are internationally known to be second only to the Catholic Church with regard to the publicity of their child abuse scandal. The expose dates back to the NBC Dateline program that aired in May of 2002. Since that program aired over twenty different programs in eight different countries have offered the testimony of countless children victimized by the policies of Jehovah’s Witnesses on the sexual abuse of children. Key areas were highlighted that were unlike any religion in dealing with these issues. To name a few;
Does anyone know of any religion that practices the above when dealing with the sexual abuse of children? How can any Jehovah’s Witness face the public knowing the issues cited above are a practice in their religion?
It would appear that a higher power has taken note on exposing hypocrisy as well, for in the last thirty days several press articles have highlighted multiple Jehovah’s Witness pedophiles that have been arrested while members were actively denouncing “false” religion for allowing the sexual abuse of children. Highlighted below are a few of the articles;
Jesus Cano a member of the elite Bethel family and served as an elder there was convicted of distributing nude pictures of him self trying to solicit anal sex from little boys.
Rick Mclean a former pioneer and Ministerial Servant is currently listed on the ten most wanted for assaulting numerous JW children in California. A civil lawsuit was filed on behalf of his victims for elders’ negligence in covering up the abuse.
Rex Peterson a long serving JW in Australia was arrested for molesting two little boys. Peterson was well known for providing herbal treatments for cancer in the JW’s.
Claude Martin an elder in Canada was arrested for molesting a ten year old girl while attending the door to door canvassing work of JW’s. He inserted his finger in her vagina while standing at the door of a home they were visiting.
Nestor Jesus Cabada at the threat of local elders in Utah, USA turned himself in for rape of a child, sodomy on a child and aggravated sex abuse of a child with regard to two little Jehovah’s Witness girls.
Enrique Bahena Robles an elder located in Cancun Mexico was charged with aggravated rape of a minor for his assault on a ten year old girl while participating in door to door canvassing work with her.
If you read the links above you will see that most of these men were serving in appointed capacity within the congregations they served. They came from USA, Australia, Canada, and Mexico with each case detailing crimes on multiple children. In the last thirty days of the KN37 distribution campaign the media has reported on six Jehovah’s Witness pedophiles. How many current Catholic reports of sexual abuse have been reported in the last thirty days? There are close to one billion Catholics worldwide but just under seven million Jehovah’s Witnesses. Based on those numbers does this appear to be a high amount of bizarre pedophile stories being reported to media from such a small religious group?
Jehovah’s Witnesses should have a moment of silence for the children their religion has hurt by policies they openly support. They should hang their collective heads in shame for their self-righteous denunciation of other religions on the epidemic problem areas they ignore within their own faith. Jesus openly described such persons in Matthew 23:27-28, he stated,
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you resemble whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleaness. In that way you also, outwardly indeed, appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”
So when the smiling neatly dressed members of Jehovah’s Witnesses call at your door offering you a bible study, remember to look underneath the “whitewashed” exterior.
Their interior may expose your children to a pedophile moving freely within the protective polices of the Jehovah’s Witnesses while denouncing your faith as being false for the “lawlessness” they practice.
The KN37 campaign of Jehovah’s Witnesses will go down in infamy as the “pot calling the kettle black” in the never ending quest to discover what really constitutes “false” religion.
