I'm doing some noodling around with ideas for the rewrite of my novel (way behind schedule as I'm back to work part time). The religion involved is a fictional creation, but based on JW's and similar groups. The basic set up is a reranged killer knocking off people he thinks are God's enemies so God can start Armageddon and bring in Paradise.
So the question, if such a thing were happening around JW's and the elders had an idea who was doing it, would they cover it up? They obviously don't have direct knowledge, but would they hold back to "keep Jehovah's name clean?" This seems to be what they did with pedophiles for a long time, and maybe still do. Your thoughts on the subject would be much appreciated.
PS: what would Bethel do if they got wind of it?
