Well what do you expect then hearing about the Conti situation? Leo Greenlees was a member of the GB and a pedophile, who was just honorably discharged to a local congregation. The apples don't fall far from the tree.

Leo was dispatched down south as a Special Pioneer.

Why Ms.Conti has kept her focus on the policy and not taken a gag-ordered settlement.

I noticed on another thread where a 'professing JW' commented about the lack of police involvement/criminal pursuit and it makes me wonder if California had mandatory reporting rules when Conti spoke with her Elders.

I guess unless a JW has experienced the 'keep it quiet, us Elders are handling things' policy they just have little understanding of the gauntlet of emotions from assuming the Elders operate under a higher calling (Jah) and then the utter disappointment if the Elders should fail to find mutual resolve such as counsel that is obeyed or judicial punishments.

Sometimes our 'internal handling' policy is effective (conflict resolution, marriage mediation, encouragement to lessen drinking etc) but sometimes the problems really are beyond the scope of Elders (deep mental health issues, physically abusive marriages, substance abuse/dependence, pedophiles etc).

Leo Greenlees....the stories are numerous.

I honestly would run out of typing space and have to go back to 1936 Canadian Bethel to start the story of him.

The gist is that Canadian Bethel was GAY GAY GAY GAY and having a GAY OLE BALL until Knorr busted the party in 1959.

Leo was brought to NY in 1964. The known abuse stories begin from this period with boys like Mark Palo. Stories continue to trickle in thru his dismissal in 1984. I wouldn't be surprised if stories from New Orleans exist but I just haven't heard.

I suppose you could 'google' Percy Chapman, Toronto Bethel Irwin Avenue, or Lorne Bridle' along with 'leo greenlees' if you want to learn more on your own.

BTW GB Ewart Chitty was dismissed for 'homosexual tendencies'. There are ridiculous allegations of Chitty with a 17 year old Bethelite but given the fact that the age requirement for Bethel was 19....obviously show it to be a 'sensationalism' phony bologna story.... he was just a gay guy who found he had a purpose and place within Bethel and homosexuals hiding within in religious structures was common to explain lack of seeking women at that time.....

Hi Yknot. Regarding Brother Chitty, he was not involved with a teenaged Bethelite. Chitty was involved in a committed relationship with his old pioneer partner of some 40 years. Chitty's life story is in a 1960s Watchtower. The way Chitty related his experience in the article I thought that he was a woman. Evidently Chitty was the passive partner in the relationship. While Chitty's homosexuality was not a crime, the anti-gay attitude of many on the GB forced his resignation from that body.

Leo Greenlees and Ewart Chitty were only the tip of the iceberg with the governing body.

yknot, i suspected that ages ago.... i've often said... probably one of the reasons they are fighting tooth and nail to keep their list of jw pedophiles out of court is because there are top leadership members involved in the crimes.... too much dirty laundry at the top level.

shush it all up till they die off.

jw rank and file will never believe it though.
all the current jw gov body have to do is write a tricky watchtower article denying it, and feed it to the drones, and make them answer the questions at the bottom.... listing a few scriptures.

i mean, during all that, they were writing articles explaining how a wife may not divorce, just because her husband was an active homosexual..... see, they know what they are covering up.

most jws will eat it, and the few who don't will get disfellowshipped and slandered.

I hadn't thought about the database of having 'higher ups' among the names.... obviously it is possible.

The homosexual thing was uber obtuse...

thanks, will check it out. it is sad that this org attacks others and pretended to be so clean and god fearing yet now this breaks and they try to do damage control and even what the court papers say some like gareth say oh no oh no that is not right. well now they cannot touch money and real estate..

the gates opened gareth no turning back now!!! they should all step down after they apologize to every parent and child and now adult who was abused just as the other faiths did. at least they did come out and speak about it when scandals broke this org what are they doing?? hiding behind doors.??

oh ynot and a others on this thread.. this is the first i have heard this .. thanks for being honest and forthcoming..

how come the jehovah's witness's gov body moved leo greenlees to a different congragation, and re-appointed him as elder?

was it to avoid admitting he had done anything wrong, as the victims signed gag orders and accepted a bribe?

and so leo greenlees was moved to a new congregation, because he was no longer able to serve as a jw gov body member, since he was a known child molester, but he was still a capable brother who needed to be move to another congregation and appointed, to avoid legal complications of admitting he did anything wrong???

so he was appointed an elder in a new congregation of jehovah's witnesses, till he died???

ok,... i get it....... and along with that articles telling jw women they may not divorce their husbands for being active homosexuals........

don't worry, jw gov body, i see it..... i see who you are.......... matt 24;24
