    "In the U.S., the Witnesses are fighting more than a dozen lawsuits brought by alleged victims who say they were abused as children by members of their congregations."

    And because of the virtually foolproof precedent set in the Campos case, those opponents and their legal reps now know how to beat them.

    Thanks for the article.

    Will read later when I have time ...

    A well composed article, with one seeming error: Current hudicial committee practice does not involve the victim having to confront the alleged abuser. If I remember correctly, they removed that requirement some time back. Apart from that error, I hope this article gets widely circulated.

    Thanks for posting this article Barbara. If we looked around the world right now, not just the U.S. I would venture to say that there are hundreds of child abuse lawsuits being brought against the WT Society as we speak around the globe . WT leaders arrogance in trying to hide pedophiles and not cooperate with the courts and police in revealing necessary information is coming back to bite them in the rear end financially. Good. They deserve it. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    The Reveal podcast is great too. They've already featured the JW pedo issue a few times before, but I'm certain they'll do a terrific in depth summary of the RAC in the next few weeks.

    "Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. Therefore, whoever opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will bring judgment against themselves. For those rulers are an object of fear, not to the good deed, but to the bad. Do you want to be free of fear of the authority? Keep doing good and you will have praise from it; for it is God's minister to you for your good. But if you are doing what is bad, be in fear, for it is not without purpose that it bears the sword. It is God's minister, an avenger to express wrath against one practicing what is bad." - Romans 13:1-4 RNWT

    The Governing Body and their Helpers are soon going to be forced to admit the truthfulness of this expression in their case involving the mishandling of child molestations...

    The ARC was not fooled by the testimony it received from all ranges of representatives from the WT. It was refreshing to witness this, as I watched the testimony, and to read this acknowledgement included in Trey Bundy's story:

    "Stewart challenged Jackson’s assertion that he felt sympathy for them.

    Jackson’s failure to review the testimony of the victims before giving his own “belies his stated sympathy for the survivors and his stated recognition of the importance of their perspectives,” Stewart wrote."

    Great article. I really like the way Trey Bundy writes on this and related subjects.
