    well whether or not the perpetrator was a "real" witness or not, someone is still dead

    It's just a guilting technique. Seriously, if there IS a God, how could anything that YOU or I could do bring reproach on him?

    It is completely illogical.

    The REAL ISSUE is the WTBTS does not want its R&F members doing anything to tarnish their carefully crafted image. (Notice use of the word "image").

    This is why they hide things like pedophiles in their midst and involvement with the UN and other dirty little secrets.

    Never could figure out how covering over child abuse, murder, etc. would "avoid bringing reproach on god's name".

    Isn't it far more reproachful that his congregations are crawling with pedophiles, rapists, murderers, thieves, etc.? Well OK I'll grant you that murder & rape are not common in the congregations, but they still do happen.

    You'd think the "reproach" would be letting crimes committed by his followers go unpunished.

    A question regarding bringing reproach on Gods ( Jehovah`s ) name

    Well, hasn`t he done that himself ? With no help from his perfect / imperfect creation ?

    A perfect human creation (Eve ) is seduced by a perfect spirit creation (satan) into defying Gods directions /laws ,whatever you want to call them , and her husband (Adam ) supporting his wife who God gave him , both are destined to destruction and all their offspring for evermore are destined to a life of , not only death as what the wages of sin are supposed to be ,but unspeakable diseases , not only to adults but to children as well .Many of these afflictions humans suffer are an affront to their dignity , it is not just a case of "The wages of Sin is Death"

    Their is so much more suffering involved. The Genesis account speaks about defying God and you will die , no mention anywhere in the scriptures you or/and your offspring would undergo such debillitating diseases that would deprive you of any dignity you may have thought you had.
