I read the AP article and got multiple flashbacks to personally being on the phone with another elder conferenced with legal at Patterson (sometimes for hours) to in the end be told the exact same thing....."since you are in Georgia, a non reporting state, you are to take no further action, the authorities are not to be involved."
AFTER the long conference call with legal then came the transfer to the service desk to give us direction on how to "offer assistance" to the victim AND perp.
This subject is the #1 reason out of 53 why I am so ashamed to be known as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. It will be on my mind heavily while at the WT this Sunday, in part, on why we should be proud to be a JW.
Please excuse me, I'm going to vomit now.
