Judge doesn't want youngster to go to any assemblies/conventions or memorial
from the article, "The judge concluded that there was a risk of the youngster suffering "emotional damage" if he was taken to to Jehovah's Witness assemblies, annual conventions and memorials."
Good news indeed! But the judge didn't go far enough. I think that eventually every secular nation will have to copy China's policy: no one under 18 years of age should be permitted to enter a church, mosque or synagogue. The primary vector for the god virus is simple procreation. Children should be inoculated at an early age through the study of logic and science, not exposed from infancy as they are at present. If an adult wants to convert to some wacky cult, more power to them, but their children should not be forced into the bargain! And how many adults will even consider joining any religion if they were never exposed to it in childhood? This is their Achilles heel!
If you are interested - those people that actually bought The Daily Telegraph newspaper yesterday (Monday 12 June 2017) - will have been able to read the article on page 10 of the print newspaper
I've uploaded a scan of the article here:
In addition, I've uploaded a link to the full and original judgement by the Judge which goes through all the various reasonings and give the background to this case, here:

Good call. Although i have to agree with rainbow, 12 is still very much an impressionable age, 18 seems the best bet. I found this line from the article particularly disturbing,
"The boy's mother had raised concern about the boy being harmed by his father's religious beliefs and had told the judge how her son had once told her "God is good and you are bad"
