  1. This guy is a total Sleeze Bucket!!!! But at least we know he's going to rule from heaven with the rest of the 144,000. Yeah right, more BS.

  2. It’s people like this that make the j w people look like creeps And ruin jehovah s name? Judgement day will not be a good day for many things

  3. The belief that the Watchtower Society disfellowships persons for reporting abuse or teaches that reporting child molesters to the police brings reproach is nothing but apostate mythology. There is absolutely no evidence to support those allegations. Here are several other quotes from Watchtower publications that debunk that false notion.

    November 15, 1962 Watchtower, page 693: "9 Worldly authorities render a judgment and punish persons, whether they are inside the congregation or outside, if they violate the laws of decency and good order….Hence the Christian congregation cannot protect any of its members if they steal, smuggle, commit bigamy, murder, libel, defraud, and so forth…."

    January 22, 1985 Awake: "Parents must make it very clear that the little victim is not to blame. The crime and anything that happens as a result of it—even if a close relative goes to prison—is not her (or his) fault."

    November 1, 1991 Watchtower: "Of course, some acts are more serious than personal affronts or hurts. What if we are the victim of a crime? … Should a crime victim, then, sit back and passively take the abuse? Not necessarily. When our person or property is violated, there are authorities to turn to. You may wish to call the police…."

    January 1, 1997 Watchtower, pp. 26-29 confirms: "Depending on the law of the land where he lives, the molester may well have to serve a prison term or face other sanctions from the State. (The congregation will not protect him from this.)"

    April 8, 1997 Awake: "Of course, children should also be warned about—and urged to report to authorities—any person making improper advances toward them, including people they know"

    August 1, 2005 Watchtower: "In our time, rape is also a major crime with severe penalties. The victim has every right to report the matter to the police. In this way the proper authorities can punish the offender. And if the victim is a minor, the parents may want to initiate these actions."

    No Watchtower publication has ever been found contradicting the above statements. And no hush hush mentality has ever been promoted by the Watchtower Society in connection with child molesters.

  4. It might take years before the case is settled in the govenmental courts. Meanwhile the child molester would still be considered one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Shouldn't a proven practicing child molester be removed from the congregation as soon as the evidence comes out rather than waiting years for the courts to decide? Of course they should. This is both scriptural, practical, and reasonable. And serves as a protection for all in the congregation. By no means would it be prudent to wait for the courts to handle the case and then the elders make a ruling based on what the court decides.

    It is just as Watchtower spokeman J.R. Brown put it according to the Associated Press, February 11, 2001: "We deal with sin, and law enforcement deals with crime." Thus if the elders have a confession or have proof from two witnesses then a judicial committee handles the situation congregationally, either reproving or removing the molester. This has nothing to do with whether or not the crime is reported to the authorities. It is a separate matter altogether.

  5. Then why do you counsel victims not to go to police and if they do they are threatened with shunning by the friends and family?

  6. It's so comical how within this disorganization there are myths and legends…. example, when I was young, there was or is a book from the WT (can't remember which) that shows a picture of members of the GB at a trial, supposedly "defending" their beliefs. I realize many years later, the truth is, they are in trial for child abuse.😶

  7. His field is to marry a young wife…. uhm…. lust after another young butt….uhm….dance foolishly…and…. be the cash collecting b**.

  8. If some humble brother or sister asked him something or looking for a help in the hall or on the site of the Congress he could talk and talk and talk …. and demonstrate to everyone that he is an expert in all fields. Ha ha !

  9. That is why You need to vote for me GG4GB Send in my Early voting Ballot to Watchtower. Protecting Children is my field of Expertise

  10. just like always.. trying to wash their hands!!. And blame someone else. . i wish every jw woukd understand that. . there is not true. it jw truth! !!

  11. Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days. Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.

  12. Not his field?  This guy is so sleazy.  You know what's interesting.  The Governing Body is NEVER put into a position where they have to answer questions.  Certainly the flock – the rank and file JW – is NEVER allowed to even question them.  When they finally face the music, such as in the case of the ARC on Child Abuse Investigation, you can see that they try to squirm out of their responsibilities as leaders!  Totally Shameless!
