JW defenders like Fisherman
Dubstepped, facts are what they are, for example, when a Court decides that Wt has no duty to protect or warn its members, is the court a wt advocate?
Richard Oliver posted a Court decision on another thread showing that a minister broke the law and caused damages to a child abuser when the minister disclosed the child abuser's communications to the police -was that court defending the wt?
When US law protects confidential communications of a child abuser or another criminal, is the law defending the watchtower?
Dubstepped, suppose a child abuser came to you, and for some reason he believed that you were a minister because you pretended to be one; he only believed that you were a minister, that's it, but you were nothing of the sort. And he confessed to you that he committed child abuse. You'd better get a lawyer and ask him what you are required to do legally because under US law that communication could be protected from disclosure. Lets say you felt a moral duty to go to the police without getting counsel from an attorney and you reported what you heard from him to competent authorities. Lets say they arrest the man or they don't find enough evidence to charge him with a crime and nothing happens to him or the case goes to trial and he is found either guilty or not guilty. Suppose he is found not guilty and he challenges you, you have a big problem if he takes you to Court. Suppose he is found guilty at the trial? He can still sue you for disclosing the protected conversation he had with you and you may find yourself looking at a verdict requiring you to pay damages to him -and you broke the law. And may have avoided the mess by asking a lawyer versus your morality which may be against the law.
You are very adamant about your noble morality but if you break the law imposing your morality on others or encroach on the rights of others because they defend the watchtower or they practice gay sex or something that you feel is not moral, should you not be punished? Or should you be allowed to go around breaking laws because you feel it is a noble thing when you harm the watchtower, its advocates or its adherents? ( I am not accussing you of doing this) -It happens at the trial dubsttepped.
