As some of you may know, I was raised a Jehovah’s Witness. In 2019, I decided to leave this organization after finding serious abuse cover up and coming across factual information that disproves the religion’s doctrine.
One of the stories this report touches on is of a young man that committed suicide after being disfellowshipped for being gay. The young man turns out to be a nephew of one of the leaders of this organization, Stephen Lett. This is an issue that hits particularly close to home since my own coming out.
All in all, it’s a scathing report. It reveals the Jehovah’s Witness religion (contrary to what its members believe) to be a man-made and human-led organization with policies and procedures that create a ripe breeding ground for all types of abuse.
I’ve never been happier to have distanced myself from this toxic organization. The leadership’s dogmatic and arrogant attitude has led to the ruin of countless lives without even an apology from the organization. Although thankfully, some victims have won cases against the organization resulting in a settlement.
Whether you’ve ever been a Jehovah’s Witness or not, I recommend you watch the video.
