Jehovah’s Witnesses abuse their kids
What’s Up Heathens! Today we are talking with Fenrir about what it’s like to lose his faith while still being a Jehovah’s Witness. He recounts his childhood in this first part. What it was like growing up a Jehovah’s Witness house and the problems associated with it.
Fenrir was born a Jehovah’s Witness. He talks about how indoctrinated he was as a kid and how the compartmentalization of certain things started very young. Everything in his early childhood centered around Jehovah. He recounts how JW’s were instructed to beat your children. He does find the way he was treated as a child was abusive. Fenrir talks about coming out of the fog of belief and being able to critically consider his upbringing. Only then did he realize that his upbringing was particularly bad.
Fenrir also discusses how he was taken out of public school as a kid in favor of being homeschooled. His siblings were also taken out of school but luckily he and a sister were put back in school. Other siblings weren’t so fortunate. It was very tough for him too because he had effectively learned nothing while being homeschooled.
