    Rodney seems a little more polished than the previous witnesses. Will be interesting to see how he holds up after some hours intense questioning.

    McClellan made a very important point that since the elders have established the facts of a crime, and determined it to be true, it ceases to be an accusation and there becomes an obligation to report the crime to the state.

    The process of JWs to establish the crime is different than most religions, and increases their obligations.

    I would like to use that quote word for word from the transcript, as it is an important distinction.

    The judge reminds him that people who deal with things internally, and decide to be the judge and jury, that they carry the weight of their decision.

    "There is something subtle in there that escapes you... someone who knows but doesn't report will be liable if they don't report."

    And that's NOT just the ELDERS, that means THE SERVICE DESK TOO!

    So, when a CONFESSION is made, and YOU know about it, YOU are liable.

    Butt kicked!!!!!!
