    This was on the news in New Zealand tonight. We haven't really had any scandals here i.e the sexual abuse coverups haven't really been heard of here so this is big news in lil old kiwi land.

    Police have finally uncovered a possible motive for the disappearance of a teenage Jehovah's Witness on a camping trip four months ago.

    Other church members who were with Elon Oved, have admitted they were dressing up in women's underwear and taking photos of each other urinating.

    Oved's father says his shy son would have left the group out of embarassment and then lost his way.

    Four months after his son disappeared in the mountains, Rami Oved says he's disgusted to find out exactly what happened on the tramping trip just before he went missing.

    This photograph shows one of the group - a 15-year-old boy - wearing a bra. The group's leaders have also admitted taking photos of people urinating.

    Elon's father, Rami Oved says: "Elon was very sensitive when it comes to that so I'm sure he was very fearful of being photographed or followed and therefore he was pushed further into the bush."

    14-year-old Elon Oved was on a camping trip with fellow Jehovah's Witness church members in the Lewis Pass area last December... he disappeared after changing clothes behind a hut...his body was found two months later.

    Police say while the conduct was not criminal, they are annoyed that they weren't told about the pranks.

    The Jehovah's Witness church emphasised it was a privately organised trip... but said the photograph.."reflects behaviour that is totally unacceptable to the moral standards espoused by the Jehovah's Witness community. If photographs were taken of people urinating during the trip, such conduct is similarly inappropriate, even if the actions were meant as a practical joke."

    Police have already re-interviewed the camping party... details of their behaviour will be heard at a coroner's inquest into Elon's death.

    G'day Shalom,

    Thanks. I'm not about to lower the tone by asking if any sheep were involved. (although, according to the watchtower, having sexual relations with a sheep or any other domesticated beast does not constitute grounds for a scriptural divorce or anythung lik thut)


    PS: Where's Hippikon hiding these days?

    A young boy was more or less murdered here, Unclebruce, you should not make fun of it. A really sad experience indeed, it must have been terrible for the one who died. I would really hope someone would close to twist the neck off the other ones. Sad sad sad.

    The R & F of the JW's are considered "sheep".
    These sheep are continually being screwed by their shephards!!

    So all you sheep, if you wanna stop getting screwed, Get the hell out!! But maybe they like it.
