Years ago I attended a new congregation where there was a child molester who had been getting away with it for over 30 years while molesting at least 7 victims.
One day after the WT study concluded , a middle aged " brother " ( not an elder or MS ) ran up to the stage and grabbed the microphone from the WT elder conductor and screamed into the microphone to the audience of over 150 that " brother so and so sitting over there is a child molester and has molested 7 children through the years. If you love your children you'll protect them from him ! " He was pointing at the molester in the audience.
The WT elder conductor grabbed the microphone from the " brother " and told the audience " brothers & sisters we are handling this situation as elders right now so it's being taken care of . " So long story short- the molester DID get dfed and he did go to jail for his crimes. However his JW wife stayed married to him and would visit him in prison. Weird.
But the " brother " who had the courage to inform the congregation became my new hero ! It took a lot of courage to do what he did ! And it wasn't until some years later that I understood how the elders try to hide this child abuse from the congregation - and I came to understand WHY this " brother " felt the need to expose this child molester to the rest of the congregation. The elders sure weren't going to inform JW parents about the molester ! So this guy took it upon himself to do so. Impressed the hell out of me even when I was still a JW . Peace out, Mr. Flipper
