Bill Bowen is a hero. I have never met him, nor have I ever spoken to him. But I know he is a hero because he has been a vehicle for those people who have been physically, mentally, and sexually abused in the Jehovah's Witness organization. While the Jehovah's Witnesses go around denegrating all other "religious" organizations, they have been either uninformed or in denial about their own house. Sure, it is easy to talk about the Catholic Church simply because of the fact that it is a huge entity and there are far more Catholics on the planet than there are Jehovah's Witnesses. In the grand scheme of things, the Jehovah's Witnesses are just a small group of somewhat radical fundamentalists, but if you take the opportunity to get a closer look at them, you will discover that the Jehovah's Witnesses seem to have a higher percentage of abuse........more, perhaps, than any other comparable organization. There have been many lawsuits and the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society, Inc. of NY had been relatively quiet about its dealings with the situation. It wasn't until someone, such as Bill Bowen, stepped forth and got in their faces. It was then the Watchtower began its efforts to put out some not so public explanations for their policies. Case in point.........the Watchtower corporation operates two "official" websites, one of which is entitled JW-Media.org, which is led by their "official" spokesperson named JR Brown. Brown states that the Watchtower organization does not encourage its members to withhold information about suspected pedophiles among them. Sounds nice doesn't it? I am sure there are some idiots on the planet that will get their ears tickled by that kind of statement. A further look into what is written by Brown and his employer, reveals the true policy that is in effect in the organization. "We report those individuals to the authorities in those areas where we are required to do so." That sounds real good when you first read it......but think about that. The powers that be at the Watchtower figure that most people are morons that could not think their way out of a paper bag.......after all.....how do you think they were able to suck in an estimated 6.5 million of them? In their own words, they tell us that it is ONLY when they are REQUIRED to do so. Got that?
Now.....how many people actually know if there is a law in their own city or state that "requires" people to report anything at all? "Gee Martha........there is a law that says that you MUST report it to the authorities that your brother Irving violated something......uhhh......let me call the Watchtower and check it out with them........Hello Watchtower?......we have a pedophile in our congregation.........can he still go door to door?" Well, you know the answer now don't you? Sure he can still go door to door as long as they do not have to report him. You have to wonder about the brain-dead............ anyway, if you have a relative or a friend that is a Jehovah's Witness, you might want to show them Bowen's website...... www.silentlambs.org ......... there is much to learn there.
You also have to wonder why the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society headquarters entrance in New York looks like they copied something out of the State Penitentiary. As I think of it, prisons DO have watchtowers.......go figure. Why would anyone be surprised to see bars at the entrance to this entryway into the abyss? Yep, that's a news cameraperson in the photo.
Meanwhile, speaking of investigations.........you can expect to see alot of those during the next two years. The Democrats are already chomping at the bit. While they will be busy investigating the Bush Administration, they will also be trying to raise your taxes again and again. Once again Charles Rangel is wanting a military draft..............who elects these morons?.........oh....I forgot about the corrupted election process. How could I forget that?!!!! Oh well......as if it wasn't bad enough...........I regret that I have to break this news to you.........but, in case you forgot how corrupt the politics in Maryland is.......you are all gonna get a rude awakening.......because Maryland-style political corruption will now be at the forefront of action in Washington DC. That's right.......the Democrats have two "leaders" in place.......Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.......and Steny Hoyer as Senate Majority Leader.
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!
