I was thinking how the JW's are no doubt going to point to this as a show of Jehovah's hand in the matter.
However I think it may also have a negative impact and lead others to learn The Truth About The Truth.
This ruling does nothing to remove the fact that Child Abusers were among 'God's People' and the Elders did nothing to protect the flock.
Regardless of the fine, I think any publicity is good publicity for helping others wake up. That's just my 2 cents...
And I could be totally wrong as well, but that is what this board is for right :-)
