New York's Child Victims Act - What Will This Mean For WTBTS?

    August 14th 2019 marks the date that New York State will allow civil litigation for child sex abuse claims against all institutions and individuals for a period of one year, regardless of how long the abuse has occurred.

    I'm curious how this will play for WT.

    Any opinions?

    I'm wondering if WTBTS is shaking in their boots right now.

    I hope California follows suit. NV usually legislates a lot of what California does and this would be great but those states like Cali and NY are swarming with victims.

    Is there an effort being made to let JWs & ex-JWs in NY know about this?

    Seems likely that there would be hundreds if not thousands of potential new cases.

    Could it be this change was the reason for the recent WT study regarding child abuse, as an attempt to appear more proactive so as to reduce liability?

    The WTS can be quite arrogant about Caesar's laws affecting them. They think their god is on their side and will make a way out.

    The WTS often uses Psalm 94:20-23 to show that using secular laws again the WTS is expected but will not prevail.

    Psalm 94:20-23

    20 Can a throne of corruption be allied with you

    While it is framing trouble in the name of the law.


    They make vicious attacks on the righteous one

    And condemn the innocent one to death.

    22 But Jehovah will become a secure refuge for me,

    My God is my rock of refuge.

    23 He will make their wicked deeds come back upon them.

    He will do away with them by means of their own evil.

    Jehovah our God will do away with them.

    Ps. 27:5-10. In those words of the persecuted David there rings a sureness of final victory over his enemies who interfere with his worship of Jehovah at his temple. Enemies would scheme spiritual calamity for him, especially by “framing trouble by decree,” legalizing the wicked persecution, and thus trying to force David to let drop his faith in God and his worship and service of God. (Ps. 94:20)

    The nations have attempted to suppress Jehovah’s witnesses with an iron fist and crush them by mischief framed by law. (Ps. 94:20) They have overcome and completely defeated such fiendish persecution in many countries. Volumes would be required to describe the modern persecution of Jehovah’s witnesses. It surpasses anything that has been recorded concerning the persecution of any minority for conscience’ sake.

    I wonder if the WTS will try to twist any angst against the Org for this as the start of the GT? That would be a [email protected] of a twist.

    I can see the announcement now: "To all Faithful Brothers - the GT has STARTED!!!!!! We are being prosecuted for the harboring of sickos and perverts, and for protecting our NAME while innocent kids are lambasted for not keeping quiet while they were molested. THIS IS TRUE PERSECUTION AGAINST GOD's TRUE ORG!!!11!1111!!!!!1!11"

    F'n bastards.
