As many of you are aware my brother who is an elder, shared with me another "shut this down moment" in a JC
A brother who was to go before another body of Elders told them that since they had contacted his former congregation they had lost their Ecclesiastical Privelege and that information they had is now subject to the Data Protection Law including records etc. When he was told he could not take notes he told the Elders the same that they had to abide by the same non scriptural mandate.
Apparently it was enough to shut the proceedings down until they called the "mother ship" for instructions.
They were told not to proceed with anything at this time until they got back to the elders.
My brother who hates JC totally said that more and more they are finding people quoting the law to them and the elders are backing off, not sure about the US where they can do anything they please but in the UK the DPA has really messed things up for the society
Anyone else hear of anything like this? Do the UK Witnesses have an upper hand?
