Campaigner’s ‘grave concerns’ over new directives for Jehovah’s Witnesses

A former Hartlepool Jehovah’s Witness who campaigns for tougher child protection policies of the church says he has “grave concerns” about updated directives to elders.
Steve Rose says the new instructions to local leaders on dealing with allegations of child abuse features some improvements but believes they do not go far enough.
Mr Rose, 52, who used to be a member of Hartlepool’s Kingdom Hall in Ashgrove Avenue, believes the guidance could put child victims at risk.
He said: “All child abuse that is reported to the elders must be reported to the service department of Jehovah’s Witnesses and not the secular authorities (police).
“This puts the child in danger because the elders are not qualified to handle such delicate matters.”
I wish the bloke looked a little less like a thug.i know they probably caught him in an unflattering moment but he really isn't a poster boy.
He is like me, he has a face for radio.
Here is another article on the subject. Prepare yourself!
Oh dear ...
the hair should go immediately
And we are criticising this guy for what reason? Should we not be looking at what he is doing to highlight this destructive cult?
Personally, I find this whole judgmental attitude sickening!
I disliked slidinfast's comment about his appearance yesterday. Then later I saw the videos of him blacking up and singing that weird song. And I too thought, "Mmm".
Apostates are a strange bunch, you've got to give that to us.
