Article-Spain: A judge cites for the first time to declare Jehovah's Witness leaders for a case of sexual abuse
Thank you for the article!
Thank you Barbara for the link.
I would love to see more Country`s around the world take this stand and prosecute Elders on a JC that never reported child sexual abuse to the appropriate authorities and only handled it in-house and not treating it as a crime.
It would make the Elders more accountable for their actions or rather inaction in dealing with child sexual abuse within the congregations and possibly make the Elders more aware of how the JW Organization leaves Elders out on a limb to take the blame and absolving the organization from any blame.
This case handled correctly could be a real wake up call for many ,I truly hope so .
Is the issue that authorities are against the principal of having another legal system that runs concurrent to the secular one?
Once again, we see "Satan's worldly " people showing up the gross crimes of "Jehovah's people"
Its amazing how it takes worldly officials to make Jehovah accountable!
Western governments turn a blind eye to religious organization's disciplinary systems and practices.
There's a debate going on in the UK regarding female genital mutilation. No British MP's are saying a word about the traditional male genital mutilation (circumcision) of baby boys by the Jewish religion.
Religions are a law unto themselves.
Anything available in English on this?
Yet again, another instance of Satan's world taking better care of victims of childhood sexual abuse than Jehovah's organization.
I'm still kinda surprised the legal system has taken so long to figure out that the WT leadership are the ones that need to be called to task.
Maybe because, in the US, they're so used to individual non-Catholic churches having more autonomy?
