An Oklahoma woman who revealed ample sexual abuse by elders in the Jehovah's Witnesses has found herself bombarded by creepy and threatening graffiti, the Raw Story website reports today (August 1, 2015).
Debbie McDaniel, 46, had been ousted from the Jehovah's Witnesses because she is a lesbian and had become sexually active, according to an article in the publication called Reveal.
McDaniel said in retaliation for telling her story to Reveal, members of her former chapter vandalized her home. Police are treating the vandalism as a hate crime because McDaniel is gay.
One of the elders who removed McDaniel from the Jehovah's Witnesses was Ronald Lawrence, who McDaniel said molested her for five years, beginning when she was eight years old. "I thought it ironic that the man who had molested me was now going to oust me to keep his congregation clean," she told Reveal.
