Geoffrey Jackson - Royal Commission Live Hearing Now!
Jackson just insulted churchgoers.
The judge is trying his best to pin him down on allowing women to be involved in the initial aspects of the case. The judge is starting to get pissed because Jackson keeps dancing around the question
PM: Is there a Biblical impediment to using a woman in the judicial process aspect?
GJ: Commissions suggestions good.
Women can be involved in all aspects up to the judicial decision process.
PM: Can women be involved in the judicial determination of whether the allegation is true or false? Is there room for a change in this?
Gj: Worthy of consideration. Yes it is possible.
WOW!!! A GB member (Jackson) just said it might be possible for JW women to be part of a judicial determination of guilt or innocence in relation to allegation of child molestation.
@Marvin: of course we know that is a lie-they would never allow women to be part of a judicial committee. I see Jackson's nose growing a bit
"We'll consider it."
"After due consideration, forget it!!!"
wanna exit: the interesting part is that this is absolutely going to be an issue. this commission is going to use these findings to make law. in a couple years they'll gonna follow up with the JWs to see if they're complying. if they aren't THEN shit hits the fan.
Angus Stewart is very good. The depth of his knowledge about arcane aspects of the organization is amazing. Not only that he focus's like a laser and is not easily led off track. I am very impressed with this guy!
Angus: who decides whether the wrongdoing has been established?
GJ: 2 elders see if there's a basis for the accusation before a judicial meeting.
Angus: Is it always necessery to use 2 MEN in this or could a woman be used in this preliminary determination is established?
Angus: who makes the decision? It must be elders?
Angus: where is this in the Bible?
GJ: 1 Cor 11:3 (headship scrip) Men make final decisions.
Women are equal to men?? Has Angus seen or heard any of Sam Herd's mysogynist rants??
Jackson is praying for the GT to start so he can be raptured.
