On Thursday, June 14, 2012, a California jury issued the LARGEST JURY VERDICT EVER in the United States AGAINST A RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION for one single VICTIM OF CHILD SEX ABUSE.

Over that following weekend and the next week, newspapers across the United States reported that late-breaking news that the WATCHTOWER CULT OF JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES had just become the subject of the LARGEST JURY VERDICT EVER in the United States AGAINST A RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION for one single VICTIM OF CHILD SEX ABUSE.

Both AP and locally authored media articles detailed the story of a 9 year-old Jehovah's Witness Girl who was repeatedly sexually molested by a fellow Jehovah's Witness congregant, and one-time congregation Ministerial Servant, who was known to the organization to have been previously convicted on child molestation charges. However, that fact had been kept a SECRET from the victim, her parents, and other regular members of their local congregation due to the secrecy policies issued from WATCHTOWER CULT Headquarters in Brooklyn, New York.

The California civil court jury was so disgusted with WATCHTOWER CULT's internal policies that it not only granted a large civil damages award against the Perpetrator, but the jury also granted a $21 MILLION DOLLARS PUNITIVE DAMAGES AWARD -- stacked on top of an approximate $2 MILLION DOLLARS ACTUAL DAMAGES AWARD -- against WATCHTOWER CULT HEADQUARTERS.

How did the Editorial Staff at the BIRMINGHAM NEWS handle this late-breaking "heinous" AP story?

DISGUSTINGLY, in the very wake of that DISGRACEFUL NEWS about the WATCHTOWER CULT, the Editors at the BIRMINGHAM NEWS sent reporter Greg Garrison and photographer Tamika Moore to BJCC Arena to gather material in order to publish a classic "puff piece" PROMOTING the WATCHTOWER CULT's in-town convention.

While responsible newspapers across the United States were reporting the real news about the WATCHTOWER CULT's problems with child sex abuse, reporter
Greg Garrison's article countered with interviews and flattering quotes from a 9 year-old boy and an 11 year-old boy, both of whom had just been baptized into membership in the Watchtower Cult.

The Publisher and Editors at the BIRMINGHAM NEWS both failed their readership and DISGRACED THEMSELVES with the timing of this PUFF PIECE.
