    i had a talk with a woman (girlfriend of an uncle-in-law) who escaped from a Jehovah's witness community. she told me how consistent child rape and molestation is throughout the community, how they cover up for each other and how they vilify the outside world to make the children afraid of seeking help.

    i don't think it says anything about the particular dogma, rather that when you have a secretive authoritarian community, you create an opportunity for sick people to enact their fantasies without the supervision of the outside world.

    Exactly. I've also read that there is widespread incest and sexual abuse in Amish communities. In retrospect, I don't know why I was surprised by that.

I don't think this is exclusive to the freemasons- it's just human tribalistic tendencies (to protect those who are like us and handle misconduct within the group rather than handing them over to outsiders) on a large scale. It has happened in large church organizations, the foster care system, elder care institutions, etc.
    Not to mention university athletics programs.

    Wait, why is no one saying anything about the systematic child abuse occurring in college football programs?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Really?

    No response?

    The denial of the sinister actions of college football programs is interesting.

    OK , doesn't anyone think it's a little word that these college football programs are exclusive organizations?

    I mean, you have to be a certain weight and height to get involved, and they don't let anyone in who hasn't spent years preparing for it. Sometimes members of college football programs go on to have even greater influence. They have weird idols mascots. And there's a lot of $$$ involved, too. Isn't there something a little odd about the fact that almost every large university has one?

    It's funny, people get so uncomfortable when you just ask questions. It says something, don't you think?

    I feel like the freemasons are at the root of the problems we are facing, in some way.

    I have my inklings into how, but I'd like to hear from someone who has experienced it first hand, if anyone cares to pm me, we can take it to another format and it will be kept confidential.
