The Judge asked Candace if she was happy with $11.2 million punitive damages. Candace was happy with the amount! If she wasn’t, the Judge would motion for a new trial, but again, that would only be if she wasn’t happy with the amount awarded. But there will be no retrial as Candace is happy!

If the Watchtower Society does not pony up the $11.2M now and decides to file an appeal next month by the 19th September, they [that's the buffoons in Watchtower HQ] will have to start paying 10% interest on $11.2 each year which would be over $1M every year on top of the very expensive process of paying for the appeal itself.

If you know someone that has experienced sexual abuse from a member of the Jehovah's Witness denomination now is the time to speak up.

if they are confident of the result, it doesn't matter, it will all be in a trust and they will get it back if she loses. I think this will go on for a long time and the WT will make sure of it. I also think its wonderful-because I am sure that the lawyers working for conti are more invested in getting out the truth than in the money-it won't take long fussing with the WT to eat up any of their legal share of it. We all know the WT will go until the end of time or there are no further appeals left.

IT'S A REALLY GREAT WITNESS! Don'tcha think?

Hey, so long as they don't just say, "OH, well" and just pay it and take their lumps like men and move forward. If they keep fighting, they are keeping themselves and their own perfidy in public light. Which DOES get brighter and brighter and which I suspect the reality of will only make this MUCH MUCH worse for them. Can you imagine how many cases are probably in the works already. They lost the reputation of being unbeatable and with this decision, a door has been opened to hope for many who despaired of even trying

I think this is win win for Conti, no matter what the WT does. THAT is the brilliance of this. They never have their illusion again and JWs know about this, even if they are too polite to speak about it to each other openly,-they are reading about it, discussing it privately and speculating about what all goes on that they should have been made aware of in this issue. There will be "AHA" moments when they will make some connections about those who have stepped down, entire families leaving abruptly, children that have gone off the rails and they will be mad because their congregations have been hurt by this policy, even the perps are hurt because they are NOT getting the kind of care and counseling they need to overcome this kind of thing (obviously as Kendrick has a long history and it continued after his "oh so careful" monitoring by the elders.

It's sad the watchtower teaches this to woman!
Awake! February 22, 1984 edition:
"Treat Him Respectfully – The intended victim should remember that the rapist is a human. No doubt there are circumstances in his life that have precipitated his behavior. So although a woman should not cower in fear and permit a rapist to intimidate her, at the same time she should treat him understandingly as a fellow human."
A girl or woman who does not scream while being raped is fornicating and she should treat her rapist with respect.  A women needs to be more loving to her abusive husband and change her thinking on the matter, realizing that she isn't being Christian enough.
Remember the rapist is human. Sure as I bite off his fleshy nose and spit it out in his face. Seriously!

Woman: I'm sorry mister rapist, I understand you are a human being and there are surely reasons for your behavior, but I am a Jehovah's. Witness, so I cannot allow you to rape me. You see if I don't scream and fight you, I will get kicked out of my church, and be cut off from Jehovah. If that happens I wont get to live in paradise and pet lions.
-
Rapist: really! You can pet lions?
-
Woman : yes, it says so in the Bible. So I am sure you will understand why I cant let you rape me.
-
Rapist : of course young lady, I wouldn't dream of raping you now. Why don't you take me to the kingdom hall so I can find out more about petting lions!
-
This must have been a wet dream of one of the GB, cause that is the only place this would happen.

It was written during GB Leo Greenlees time. I believe he was printing his perverted thoughts.

BEASTILITY NO DIVORCE\w72 Questions from Readers]

*** w72 1/1 p. 32 Questions from Readers ***

While both homosexuality and bestiality are disgusting perversions, in the case of neither one is the marriage tie broken. It is broken only by acts that make an individual “one flesh” with a person of the opposite sex other than his or her legal marriage mate.
