I just completed a new article at Michigan Skeptics called “Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Still Have a Major Pedophile Problem?” Spoiler: The answer is yes. But at least some countries are starting to take notice.
This article might be a good one to bookmark, if only for the sources, because everything has a link. There are only one or two ex-Witness or anti-Watchtower links. One is quoted for its explanation about why the destruction of elder notes, minutes, and agendas regarding these cases is a big deal. The other link points to Lloyd Evan’s (Cedars) YouTube video on the issue. Everything else is sourced with news links, not just ex-Witness or anti-Watchtower links. I consider this important because sites like mine are often dismissed as evil old apostate sites filled with demon lies. At the very least, news sources will be taken more seriously by people who were never Jehovah’s Witnesses.
This is a followup to my original article written back 2013 entitled “What You Don’t Know About Jehovah’s Witnesses and Pedophiles.”
If you catch any factual or grammatical errors, please share so I can fix them. Thanks. 🙂
Merry Christmas to all my fellow geeks and heathens. As a (sort of) gift, I am providing links to some of my YouTube playlists for you to ignore or enjoy. Note that I would like to edit the start and end times for some of these, but it seems that YouTube (aka Google) has decided to take this feature away. For some reason.
I maintain all these playlists to varying degrees.
Canada’s Worst Driver is probably my favorite reality TV show. And most episodes are available on YouTube! The last 6 seasons are at least. I maintain this playlist because my wife and I like to go back and watch it from time to time. As more episodes become available, I will add them.
Canada’s Worst Handyman is another good reality TV show from Canada. It’s also very Wintery, so it feels like Christmas. 🙂
Here is a playlist featuring movies, TV shows and other videos for geeks. Many of these are anime. Note that some of these get deleted from time to time and I have no control over that.
This is a playlist of standup comedy in no particular order.
Secularism, Atheism, and Skepticism
Conspiracy Roadtrip is a BBC show that takes true believers in various conspiracy theories, including the idea that evolution is a scientific conspiracy, on a bus throughout the United States to show them the evidence that their belief is wrong and to see if they can change anyone’s mind. Note that the host of the show is a nonbelieving comedian, but he seems to treat the people pretty respectfully.
This is a collection of secular and atheist videos I’ve found across YouTube in no particular order.
Below are two playlists of my favorite Atheist Experience episodes and clips.
Here is a small list of ex-Jehovah’s Witness videos. Note that it includes the one about Kissing Hank’s Ass. 🙂
A documentary for ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses.
I just finished college, so I’m hoping to have more updates started for the website soon. In the meantime, a moment of vindication: Yep. Truth be Told will soon be downloadable to anyone who wants it. Use coupon code FACEBOOK5 for $5 off the Deluxe Package.
Your wait to see Truth Be Told will soon be over!
Truth Be Told will be available for digital download on 12/19/14 and we’ll even be able to preorder a DVD with extras! I don’t know everything about what’s to come, but I’m told it will include full interviews with the ex-Witnesses who appear in the film. You can see clips of the documentary at Gregorio Smith’s website and on SMITHKRAFT’s YouTube channel. I don’t know about you, but I’m there, man.
I’m told Huffington Post will be announcing this very soon, but I’m posting it today. There’s also going to be a mass screening with Reddit AMA after Christmas Day! I’m already thinking about watching it alongside other ex-Witnesses in chat forums, too.
For anyone who is unfamiliar with Truth Be Told, it’s a documentary by director Gregorio Smith about former Jehovah’s Witnesses. I interviewed Gregorio about the film here if you want to learn more.
So get your own copy and stick it next to The Prodigal Returns and see which one catches fire first!
