Vice has a new documentary out about the cult I was raised in. In it are details that prove the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization has a severe child protection problem. There are tens of thousands of cases that have never been reported. The organization is also responsible for the death of people with their misapplication of scripture when it comes to blood transfusions, and those who’ve committed suicide for being gay, trans, or otherwise shunned.
I really hope Vice makes this documentary more easily accessible so that people can educate themselves on what this organization does and the loss it causes. It controls people’s lives to a degree that’s hard to fathom if you’ve never been part of something like it.
If you’re a Jehovah’s Witness reading this, I implore you to watch the documentary. It’s ok to change your mind based on new information.
