    Oh man, the part that says a disfellowshipped person can get a lift to the KH if it’s in a bad neighbourhood and he has no other way to get there... but he has to be treated like on public transportation with no conversation during the trip. To top it off, an elder will monitor the “arrangement” in case it is being “abused”.

    I think it is clear who is being abused in this sort of arrangement.

    These people have no humanity and no common sense.

    Awesome! Thank you Atlantis. It will be months before the average elder even hears about this new release.

    Thank you so much Atlantis!

    Someone, who isn't an elder, tried telling me that the following bit from Chapter 14-7 had changed a long time ago.

    ********************************************

    "7. To ensure that elders comply with child-abuse reporting laws, two elders should immediately call the Legal Department for legal advice when the elders learn of an accusation of child abuse. "

    *********************************************

    Clearly this has not changed. If little Johnny comes running out of the back room at the Kingdom Hall saying Elder Bob raped him, who are the Elders supposed to "immediately" call? Watchtower! Not 911.

    Even though Chapter 14-6 plainly states "Child abuse is a crime." The crime scene is getting older by the minute, DNA evidence may be getting washed away, but the first priority is circling the wagons to protect Watchtower coffers. Forget about the abused child or the (possibly) falsely accused Elder Bob.

    When will they learn?

    Atlantis, excellent as usual!

    Regarding a mate who says their non JW mate committed adultery, they sign a statement and if the elders have no reason to question the innocent mate’s declaration, they can get get a scriptural divorce. That’s not new.
