    In February, Oxygen will premiere a two-part documentary about the Jehovah’s Witnesses in which a journalist who has spent five years looking at the group alleges “an abuse story that has layers of coverup.”

    Thanks for posting that video annihilator , it looks like it will be an excellent expose of the religion .I am looking forward to seeing it .

    I`m just wondering how big an audience is covered by Oxygen TV and how we can get it out to an even bigger audience if need be ?

    smiddy,

    I honestly do not know how big an audience Oxygen TV has.

    I see 126K subscribers on the Oxygen youtube channel

    Most likely somebody will download it using the Oxygen app and then torrent it and u tube it.

    Even if this get's just one person out and let's the public know what this corrupt cult does to people, it's so worth it. Watchtowers reputation is taking a hit and Watchtower know's it. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK EVERYONE!!!

    anni, thanks for the trailer and info. This is the issue that will not go away for the WTBTS.

    Your post also brings up legal issues.

    The peopleDOTcom article contains an interesting link to another article telling of how an LDS man is now in prison "after church clergy heard [the man's] private confession to sexual abuse of a minor, and then turned his name over to police for investigation." The context is that this man's wife is now suing the LDS church.

    "At issue in the lawsuit, which names the Salt Lake City-based church as its sole defendant, is the church’s role in expecting its members to admit their transgressions in order to “get back in favor with the church,” and the members’ expectations that such confessions would be handled internally and kept confidential, Bill Brandt, an attorney for the wife, told The Oregonian."

    In light of the recent "success" by the WTS in having their $35 million settlement thrown out over this very "confidential confession" principle, this could open up more potential liability for the WTS. How can they claim they have clergy-penitent privilege and yet also report a cong member in states with reporting laws? There's a contradiction here. If they withhold reporting, they risk legal action in criminal courts from the states, or in civil courts from the victims. If they go ahead and report, they also risk legal action for claiming clergy-penitent privilege but then not living up to it, as this Mormon woman has done.

    What a mess they are in!
