    Wow, Corney, I guess reading the rest of the story is important before having an opinion. Thanks for sharing that.

    I swear, if these morons are representatives of most BOEs, it goes a long way towards explaining the more fucktarded decisions the Org leadership makes.

    On September 27, the Supreme Court of Utah granted writ of certiorary in that case to answer the question:

    Does the Establishment Clause [separation of church and state] of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, as applied to Utah through the Fourteenth Amendment, bar all claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress [IIED] arising out of religiously motivated conduct?

    - and to decide whether an IIED claim against Roy, UT congregation, four elders and Watchtower NY can go to a jury.

    The case will be heard next year.

    .” A group of three elders (the Elders)<2> presided over the judicial committee. Williams voluntarily attended the judicial committee with her mother and step-father. The Elders questioned Williams for forty-five minutes

    The voluntary attending we all know is not really true

    It’s just crazy that these courts will rule in some cases that just about anything that is done by a religion is ok because of the first amendment. This is 2019 it’s time we get out of the dark ages!

    Don't worry, we're well on our way.

    Just for the record.

    The audio of the hearing in this case held before the Utah Court of Appeals (an intermediate appellate court) in January is available on Youtube (begins on 1:09:05): https://youtu.be/pW35u2WqCcE?t=4144

    Hi all or nothing,

    Why did these 3 elders ever feel

    You are assuming that elders feel about other jws or have any thoughts but what the WTS allows them to have, directly or indirectly. WTS uber alles.

    Interesting dialogue. Keep this post alive until the final

    Pretty wierd hearing them talking about saving souls. Committees are interested in keeping up appearances, the people be damned
