A Message to Scientology

It appears that some people are really upset about Scientology. If you watch this video, you'll know what I mean.

A Message to Scientology

You may also enjoy reading this article about the movement. I think we all have good reason to be concerned about cults and high control groups. We never know when a family member or friend could get involved and shut us off. They often threaten the unity of families, the basic building block of society. I am personally being shunned by most of my family because of simple disagreements with Jehovah's Witness teachings. I am committed to fighting the power of cults and high control groups and applaud others who are doing the same.

Secrets of Pedophilia Among Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses claim to take a very strict position against pedophiles in their religion. Unfortunately, their policies (many of them secret) have served to protect pedophiles from the police or prevent their members from finding out when there is a pedophile in their congregation. There are also loopholes that have allowed many known pedophiles to be appointed to positions of responsibility.

Lawsuits have resulted and the Jehovah's Witnesses have recently settled some of these out of court. The victims were required to sign gag orders. Barbara Anderson has helped to uncover some fascinating and very disturbing information about this multimillion dollar settlement. She has compiled a CD with about 5000 pages of court documents that can be purchased at her website. She has also made available a nearly 100 page summary of these documents that can be downloaded for free at these links: Watchtower Documents, Freeminds Site, Danny Haszard's Site.

If you are a Jehovah's Witness, I plead with you to find out the truth about this. Your religion teaches a concept of community responsibility. If you support an organisation, you bear some responsibility for its sins. Willful ignorance is not an excuse.

Fun With Covers, An Amusing Video Series

Humor can be a refuge. Jehovah's Witnesses distribute millions of magazines and brochures in their efforts to spread their peculiar teachings and make converts. The fact that these publications can be a source of endless humorous comments hasn't gone unnoticed. I hope you will enjoy this video.

Jehovah's Witness Discussion

Jehovah's Witness Discussion (JWD) is a great discussion site about Jehovah's Witnesses and related topics. It is very active and has some great researchers, so if you have a question, you're likely to get a lot of help quickly. It's very useful if you are trying to recover from cult influence and are looking for support. It's archive is very extensive and has a useful search feature for research.

First Post

Well, I wanted a place where I could write about things like religion, cults, atheism, and agnosticism. Life is a journey and my recovery from a cult is an important part of my journey. However, there is much more. I want to continue to grow and learn and share with others. Thanks for dropping by and feel free to comment.
