Why the Legal Dept told the GB to resign from ALL CORPORA...

yes no excuses, one has to be honest to accept what will show their belief wrong what JW expect other religions to do. to be meek is to be teachable something JW always say for others but not for themselves, I really don't have much sympathy anymore for JW.  (Friday Aug 12 | post #6)

CHURCH elders knew one of their parishioners had raped a young girl, but did not tell police for more than a decade, Warwick District Court has heard. The shocking secret was revealed today as Southern Downs man Brian David Harvey, 47, was jailed for eight months for digitally raping the girl, a fellow parishioner of a Jehovah's Witness church. The court heard Harvey, who was aged in his 30s at the time, molested the young daughter of a friend on three occasions and raped her once. Barrister Robbie Davies told the court the girl, who was not even a teenager at the time, reported the abuse to the church three years later, in 2002, and they "made their own inquiries". As a result, Harvey was "ostracised " from the church for three years but the matter was not reported to police. Despite admitting the crimes to elders, he was still able to attend church services during his period of ostracisation. The victim made a complaint to police last year, as an adult. Harvey was formally charged in October, 2015, with three counts of indecent treatment of a child under 12 and one of rape. He pleaded guilty to all four counts in court yesterday, while his victim, now aged in her 20s, sat crying in the back of the room. Crown Prosecutor Shauna Rankine said the offences took place over a 10-day period. Mrs Rankine said the girl tried to push her abuser away but couldn't, due to his size. "He overcame the resistance of the child," she said. Mr Davies said Harvey admitted the crimes when approached by church elders. The victim was visibly distressed during the proceedings and was unable to read her victim impact statement to the court. Mrs Rankine spoke on her behalf. "I cannot start a relationship; I feel scared about what (men) will do to me," the statement read. "I was happy. "I was not insecure about hanging out with men." Judge David Andrews acknowledged the emotional effect the offences had on the victim. "The complainant who has suffered continuing grief as a result of your offending, feels even now.....that she's not confident enough to enter into a relationship as a result of what you've done," Mr Andrews said. "You were a person in whom considerable trust had been given." In sentencing Harvey, Mr Andrews told him he had taken into consideration the fact he had already been punished by the church and through the breakdown of his marriage. "And I take in to account also your good prospects of good rehabilitation, which seem to be demonstrated by your willingness to admit these things, and your lack of offending in the long period since this offence." He was sentenced to two and a half years jail, which will be suspended after he serves eight months. A woman in the gallery was visibly upset with the sentence, yelling "you sleaze" at Harvey. The Daily News contacted the church for comment but have yet to receive a response. http://www.warwick dailynews.com.au/n ews/churc...  (Jun 25, 2016 | post #1049)

It was alleged that documents held by Watchtower proved this accusation; documents that list tens of thousands of alleged Jehovah¬ís Witness child molesters that the religion has failed to report or act upon, but has instead simply filed away. Watchtower have confirmed the existence of these documents, but when ordered to produce them by the court in March 2015, they have provided them in an extremely redacted form, rendering them essentially useless to Padron¬ís legal team. http://jwsurvey.or g/news/news-bullet in-watchtower-foun d-in-contempt-of-c ourt-hit-with-4000 -fine-per-day-unti l-it-complies-with -court-order  (Jun 25, 2016 | post #1047)

http://www.sandieg oreader.com/news/2 016/apr/24/ticker- tough-build-jehova hs-witness-sex-abu se-case/# A San Diego Superior Court judge has ordered the Church of Jehovah's Witnesses, also known as the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania, to pay $4000 a day for every day that it fails to produce documents requested in a civil lawsuit brought by former parishioner, Osbaldo Padron, who claims a church elder sexually abused him when he was seven years old. In a June 23 ruling, expected to be made final today, judge Richard Strauss admonished the church for willfully ignoring a court order to produce all documents associated with a 1997 Body of Elders letter that church leaders sent to parishes around the world in a quest to learn about sexual abuse of children by church leaders. Over the course of the past year, the Watchtower Society and its lawyers have fought hard to keep the letter confidential, claiming that turning over the documents would infringe on the privacy of those mentioned in the letter that were not associated with the case. In March 2015, the church turned over a heavily redacted version of the letter. Opposing attorneys called the redactions excessive, rendering the document illegible. Judge Strauss then assigned a discovery referee to sit with the two sides. But having a referee involved didn't solve matters. Repeatedly, the Watchtower Society has stated that it will not comply with the order. ..... read on http://m.sandiegor eader.com/news/201 6/jun/24/ticker-ju dge-sanctions-jeho vahs-witnesses/  (Jun 25, 2016 | post #1044)

Jehovah's Witness Church Release Statement Over Prince's ...

not the ;point I was making, if any other JW lived his life away from the KH they would at the very least be reproved, he dresses well for the KH like they do but in public he dresses very worldly I mean Morris goes on about women and tights while jogging, and mean wearing tight pants, but ones like prince can wear and have their homes worldly nothing said. what you said is probably true but you never addressed my point.  (May 13, 2016 | post #30)

To all former JWs: what really woke you up?

no Christians were known as JW. Rutherford founded that name for JW in the 1930's, rather those of the apostles and brothers of the 1st century were simply known as the way, or Christians, they were WITNESSES FOR JESUS.  (Apr 30, 2016 | post #8)
