Why? Special interests again from inside the Weekly? Pressure from the Church Lawyers?
Every time a candid community discussion takes place in which sharing of experience takes place, the weekly locks a thread or contains the thread to registered users! Registered uses CAN BE IDENDIFIED AND THAT CAN BE A MAJOR PROBLEM.
Seems like the Weekly endorses the covering up of abuse AND CORRUPTION ON A CONTINUED BASIS. EDITING POSTS IS ONE THING, BUT totally silencing a community is just plain bad press and bad business practice.
Same thing happened when the problems were EXPOSED at The Church on the corner at Hopyard.
Same thing happened with the child molester mother and the list goes on. The weekly is corrupt and not neutral!
I SUGGEST that some one start a Yahoo Group Forum and re direct people interested in continuing a candid discussion.
If there is an open "forum" related tro this topic, PLEASE inform the community.
By sharing our stories, we recognize that we are not alone, and we are not guilty for what happened to us. Gradually coming to a full knowledge of this empowers us to confront the truth, and to find healthy mechanisms for healing.
We work together to educate ourselves and our communities about the effects of the abuse.
Once we learn the truth about what has happened to us, we can then use that power to bring about change. When we put our voices together, we become so strong that we can no longer not be heard.
