    "There would be serious problems if this action were tried in the United States." go TELL THAT TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH!

    It COULD HAPPEN HERE - since the cult condones this evil - the Catholic cult is constantly being sued. It's the class action that would make it more difficult. An individual would most likely be bringing the suit and not the state or government.

    factfinder - "Could it be the gb thinks this is a REAL threat to them?"

    As far as authoritarian regimes are concerned, anything that doesn't reinforce their ideology is a potential threat.

    Transferring of Assets to avoid paying out lawsuits is illegal in Australia and the UK and the USA and Europe and Canada. How stupid do they think the courts are ? Oh, right... its the GB and the WT we are talking about here.

    inside the KH - do not give up hope Candice Conti won her case for 20 million and she is one single individual, multiply that by thousands and thousands of pedophiles who were never reported becaue the WT instructed the Elders in the Shepherd the Flock handbook not to report them and told the children, not to tell. That is a crime. Any Elder involved is culpable and so is the WT who wrote those instructions. We have not seen the end of this.

    The other question is: WHO has the money ? There are only 300-500 members in the legal corporation who are shareholders, shareholders in what ? WHO owns the land ? WHO has access to the bank accounts ? Congregations were told to empty their bank accounts and send the money to the WT Society. Did these billions disappear into thin air ?

    This is skulduggery, fraud and deception at a very high dollar amount. How do they claim tax exemption if they do no charititable works and how can they, if they claim they haven't a penny to their name.? What a web they are weaving for themselves. ( self propaganda does not qualify as "charity" )

    @Paris same story for conti she did not win anything yet. First await the outcome of appeals before you cry victory.

    As long as governments grant them charity status it must mean they are entitled to tax exemption by law.
