Robin and Mike Thompson have not considered themselves Jehovah’s Witnesses for some time, as they “faded” out over ten years ago. However, the organization’s “Stay Loyal to Jehovah” convention of 2016, which heralded the Governing Body’s “crackdown” on inactive members – and the reinforcement of their shunning policies with the now infamous shunning video – inspired them to step up and speak out, and, most importantly, to encourage others to do the same.
In this video, Mike interviews a former elder on the disgracefully neglectful child abuse reporting policies of the organization, and why a heartbreaking case of sexual assault on a young girl led him to leave the faith he’d come to think of as “the Truth.”
What do you think about this video? Do you agree? Do you have a story or a YouTube video about undue influence that you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you!
