Of course you would.

You would believe anybody who said something bad about Jehovah's Witnesses.

That's not the reason, Aneirin.

He's an ex jw who, like me, is now a real, born again Christian, while you are still a member of the jw cult, so he speaks truths from the Bible, while you spout half truths, at best, from the watchtower society.

By the way, are you born again Aneirin? If you don't feel like saying, why not give us some of your testimony, assuming you have one?

Now there was a certain man among the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler (a leader, an authority) among the Jews,

2 Who came to Jesus at night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know and are certain that You have come from God [as] a Teacher; for no one can do these signs (these wonderworks, these miracles—and produce the proofs) that You do unless God is with him.

3 Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is BORN AGAIN (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God
John 3:1-3 Amplified Bible

10 Then I heard a strong (loud) voice in heaven, saying, Now it has come—the salvation and the power and the kingdom (the dominion, the reign) of our God, and the power (the sovereignty, the authority) of His Christ (the Messiah); for the accuser of our brethren, he who keeps bringing before our God charges against them day and night, has been cast out!

11 And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of THEIR TESTIMONY, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].
Rev 12:10,11 Amplified Bible

I bet more was involved. But UNchained is never going to tell the whole truth here.
In fact UNchained doesn't even know the whole truth here because the judicial meetings are private. He has no idea WHY they were disfellowshipped.
2 of them weren't disfellowshiped.

They were announced as DA'd because it was before January 2005 when they ditched your satanic cult and the Watchtower changed the announcement in 2005.

The very rare cases of child abuse or molestation involving a witness always makes the topic of conversation, especially among people who hate Jehovah's witnesses. Anyway they can expose the sins of someone who is suppose to be a servant of Jehovah God and be an imitator of Jesus Christ makes them happy. They love to lump all Jehovah's witnesses into the same mold they make.

These apostate people love to find fault and expose others failings, that is their reason or purpose in their life. They forget the average person is not as gullible as they think or as smart as they think they are, Jesus is the judge of sinners in this world, not the apostate critics.

Whenever Gareth is proven wrong, he just screams "lies" like a toddler having a tantrum
The proven liar is Gareth/Anerin or whatever other alias he is using today.
He is a homosexual Jehovah's Witness who is an unpaid slave to the Watchtower at Bethel.
He is a sad excuse for a human being.

Once again not a word of concern for the victims of pedophile Jehovah's witnesses, who are usually elders when they commit their disgusting crimes.
Just CYA for "the organization"
The Jehovah's Witnesses are truly an evil cult, one where pedophiles have protection, and every child is at risk of a sexual assault where there will be no one to defend or protect them.

In Jehovah'sWitnessland, it is understood if a man of "jehovah" sexually assaults either a woman or a child, it is the fault of the victim, as the monster who attacks the victim, is appointed by "jehovah"

Gareth disagrees.

He says a JW who did that would just be considered weird.

Either he doesn't know as much as he knows about the Watchtower Society (which is highly unlikely since he was the first poster to thoroughly explain the WTBTS policy on lending $$$$ for new kingdom halls) or he is lying to protect the guilty.

What do you think, is Gareth ignorant or is he lying to protect the guilty?

According to my JW relatives child abuse does not happen within the Christian congregation and JWs should not believe the media.
They claim that we are living in the last days and satan will do anything to weaken their faiths in Jehovah.

So i guess thousands are disfellowshiped every year for whatever reasons and none of them includes child abuse.

What are bunch of idiots.

You know the saying God begats God, man begats man, then you have the lying WTS/GB begatings liars like Gareth and others like him. it's all honky dory to lie in spite of the fact scriptures said,
Proverbs 14:5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.
It is obvious to all that JW's are not Christian, are not even witnesses of God or they would not lie, not follow liars. They would deny the lie as they stand up for truth.They are so afraid of men of the GB they accept and preach lies of the WTS instead of the truth, peace and love for all, as Jesus said to preach in order to be his followers.
You can see their deliberate disobedience to Christ.

Yup, because they believe that children and women who are sexually abused/raped/murdered are asking for it.
Just look at the Kelle Jarka case to see how the congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses supported the "pure evil" (according to the judge" elder who murdered his wife in cold blood.
Same goes for elders and other male Jehovah's Witnesses who sexually assault children, the children are willing participants according to the Jehovah's Witnesses.
Sick, sick, sick
Our children need to be protected from evil cults like the Jehovah's Witnesses that hide their crimes behind "freedom of religion"

Anyone who is disassociated from the world wide congregation and the one truth of Jehovah God, has made the decision to return to this world, same as a cleaned pig that has returned to wallow in the mud.
2Peter 2:22

This world and all the false doctrines the many different Churches teach will soon be gone from this earth forever, and so will every person that refuses to obey the Law of Christ as it is taught by Jehovah's witnesses.

Isaiah 48:17,18
