Watchtower Society/Jehovah’s Witnesses GUILTY – Must Pay Millions in Punitive Damages in Child Sex Abuse Case

Watchtower Society/Jehovah’s Witnesses GUILTY – Must Pay Millions in Punitive Damages in Child Sex Abuse Case

I am overjoyed to see some traction on this issue at last. The jury found that the elders who managed the Fremont congregation in the 1990s and who were under the supervision of Watchtower knew that Kendrick, a member, had recently been convicted of the sexual abuse of another child, but they kept his past record secret from the congregation, said Simons. Kendrick went on to molest the plaintiff, who was a Jehovah’s Witness member in Fremont, over a two-year…

Serial Child Predator JW Walks

A Jehovah’s Witness pedophile elder (called an “evil monster” by his own sister) was spared prison today. Michael Porter, 38, of Barnet, north London, admitted to abusing his position of trust, and was convicted of 24 counts of indecent assault and gross indecency on children, including one on an 18-month-old baby. “He abused dozens of children and even a baby. But he’s still free.” JWs are discouraged from reporting abuse to police because they are told that all worldly authorities…

Murderers Protected by Jehovah’s Witness Policies?

This just in from Silent Lambs In the article below two smiling accused murders walk free as a Jehovah’s Witnesses refuses to provide evidence of their crime. This appears to be a pattern with regard to how JWs deal with crime, note the following letter sent to two elders that inquired about a confession of several murders in 1992. http://www.silentlambs.org/education/92_murder_letter.cfm As the reader can see the fact that the person involved committed the murders before becoming baptized resulted in a…
