Toronto -- A criminal lawyer and a Jehovah's Witness, Glen How successfully argued landmark cases at the Supreme Court of Canada defending civil and religious liberties.

Between 1946 and 1953, Jehovah's Witnesses were involved in more than 1,500 criminal prosecutions ranging from disturbing the peace to sedition in Quebec, where Roman Catholic premier Maurice Duplessis had declared "a war without mercy against the Witnesses of Jehovah." Thirty years before the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Mr. How was the lawyer who challenged many of these charges on the grounds that they violated basic rights to freedom of speech, religion and association.

Mr. How was educated at the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall. He became a Jehovah's Witness in 1941, two years before he was called to the bar in Ontario and began his long practice as general counsel of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

Glen How was born March 25, 1919, in Montreal. He died Dec. 30, 2008, of pneumonia in Georgetown, Ont. He was 89, and suffered from prostate cancer. A full obituary is forthcoming

Luke 16:27-29 (New Living Translation)

27 “Then the rich man said,‘Please, Father Abraham, at least send him to my father’s home. 28 For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don’t end up in this place of torment.’

29 “But Abraham said,‘Moses and the prophets have warned them. Your brothers can read what they wrote.’

I heard a tape of a radio program (from Cleveland I think) that Glen How was involved in. It became evident that the radio personality who interviewed Glen thought that he knew more about the blood issue than How did. But as it turned out - he didn't. Glen very gently ‘wiped the floor’ with that guy!
The interviewer became very flustered. And so when Glen said that the medical profession doesn't have a reliable test for Syphilis, the guy very disrespectfully then said to Glen, "Do you need a test (for syphilis)?"
During a commercial the producer bawled the interviewer out for treating Glen the way he was doing.
I heard that a couple weeks latter the guy committed suicide. I cannot confirm that that part of the story actually happened.
But I suspect that he lost a lot of respect from his listeners who, up to that point, thought he was always “fair and balanced.” In this case, he wasn’t.

Talking about always "fair and balanced." Speak for yourself.
