Irish Elders deleted by Watchtower for reporting child sex abuse allegation to police

    Two elders have been deleted by Watchtower for reporting an allegation of child sexual abuse to the police, contrary to Watchtower orders (a jw paedophile with a history, apparently). When the British branch discovered what the elders had done they arranged for 3 elders to fly over to Ireland, at the congregations expense no less, to hold a special JC for the ' rogue' congregation elders. One elder and the COBE were deleted, two were allowed to continue. All four had made statements to police.

    Their crime was, breathtakingly, not exhibiting "soundness of mind" by not following company directives and using their own conscience!!!

    The following 'Watchtower in Focus' explains all. Incredibly a practicing jw reached out to jw survey in an attempt to have a light shone on this travesty of justice, which resulted in an excellent front page article being written in a national magazine.

    Lloyd Evans practice of maintaining a less antagonistic attitude toward jw's is paying off.

    **Hats off to the right thinking, decent elders, whoever you are!!**

    Unfortunately there’s no proof that these elders were deleted because of reporting the child abuse. So unless one of these elders or both go to the press and have interviews it won’t do any good. Even then most JWs won’t believe it. I’m not trying to be a pessimist but these elders need to come out and say something publicly and try to maybe help more to leave this cult.

    True or not factual or not. Look what the gb did to the Irish brothers who had a problem with some doctrine and flew to NY to discuss it. The ignorant s*** at NY would not even meet with them.

    Talk about food for depression!

    sorry don't have a link.

    I`m sorry but for various reasons I cannot watch a video of an hour or more can someone who has watched it break it down so that we can get the gist /highlights of the main points that need to be discussed ?

    When did this happen ? Have the Elders who were deleted ever gone public ?What about Media publications in the news,etc.about this case .

    contrary to Watchtower orders
    not following company directives

    What exactly were these orders and directives which they did not follow?

  • Xanthippe

    Drearyweather elders are required to inform the branch first about allegations of child abuse before going to the police even though sexual assault is a crime.

    If this is true.....and it is very believable....I would hope the ex-Elders don't sink back into submissive bOrg mode but actually take action against the WBT$. What that action is, I know not. As Crazyguy said....they should go to the press.

    Would it be possible for them to report the flying squad from HQ to the police for supporting paedos?

    Somehow, I think it's a long shot.

    However, the WBT$ has a disgusting attitude toward the victims of watchtower(tm) enabled perverts.
