The strange case of Gerrit Losch
Other than embarrassing Gerrit Losch what information would he have that the PMQ that was deposed couldn't have supplied in this specific case that the subpoena was issued for. The plaintiff was suing over what happened to him and the response that occurred following it.
The law doesn't allow people to be deposed just to humiliate them.
a very strange man, not just accepting he is a fraud and a serial liar, I sense a sexual deviant as well.
It is interesting to see the GB members getting entangled in court cases one by one. Loesch had to lie his way out of the Padron case in San Diego, putting him on public record as denying the very position he is demanding respect and trust for in this month’s broadcast.
Jackson had to testify in Australia to avoid arrest for contempt of court, then lie about his true position.
Sanderson made quite a show attending the extremism hearings in Russia, then fled the country as soon as the JWs were banned, leaving the Russian JWs to suffer for decisions he and his cohorts have made. The Russian court only had to call two witnesses to demonstrate the extremism of the JW organization. One was a woman who had to flee an abusive JW husband then was shunned and the other was a man who had to forego an education as a result of the pressure the org puts on people to avoid education. They don’t want these aspects of the case to be discussed among their followers.
I would like to see the Canadian Supreme Court subpoena Splane, the Canadian member, to answer for the policy of shunning in the case there.
Each one of them should have to answer for their actions in a court of law. Shame on them.
Vin Toole the JW lawyer who gave evidence also misled the ARC into child sexual Abuse with his testimony.
And the Elders who gave testimony hummed and arhhhed about how to answer questions put to them by Angus Stewart who went to bat for the victims.
And in my opinion they were pathetic especially one Elder who was obviously waiting for the Holy Spirit to put words in his mouth, however no words were forthcoming ...... I wonder why ?
These men are a far cry from how the apostles are portrayed in the Bible when they faced questions and scrutiny.
Ok, I know I'm gonna get burned on this one.......BUT.........
What authority does WatchTower have over Gerrit? ZERO!! He's a grown man. He could pack his stuff up, and move on out any time he wants! No one in WT HQ is forcing him to remain there. Now, I'm not saying HE doesn't have authority there (he obviously does), but I don't see the issue with the statement he signed. In his mind, he only answers to (2) higher powers: 1.) Jesus 2.) Jehovah God That's it! An earthly organization is just that, and he doesn't answer to them. Pretty hypocritical that the rest of JW's are to respect the WT Org as divine authority though, wouldn't you say?
These man are proven liars
That's all the world needs to know Gorby.
We have work to do.
I don't see the issue with the statement he signed. In his mind, he only answers to (2) higher powers: 1.) Jesus 2.) Jehovah God That's it! An earthly organization is just that, and he doesn't answer to them.
That is almost certainly the justification Losch makes in his own mind, to allow him to say those things.
The key to his statement is, what exactly is "Watchtower"?
In some contexts, it might be merely "the legal entity used by JWs". In other contexts it might be what they call "the earthly part of Jehovah's Organization".
In context 1, Losch's statement is true. In context 2, it is as blatant a lie as can be made.
That's the (evil) genius of redefining words (as they have done with "generation", "lie", "apostate" etc.) to suit your needs - you can semi-plausibly get away with saying outrageous stuff. And "semi-plausible" is good enough for JWs trained to be meek, submissive, and obedient.
