Shameful News re: Watchtower Society of Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses will claim all of these are untrue articles, not based on facts.  However, by the same token, if the words "Jehovah's Witness" were replaced with "Catholic" or any other religious denomination, they would declare them to be true.  Additionally, if the media reports on Watchtower Society conventions are accurate, why, then, would the media's reports on adverse news, regarding the Jehovah's Witnesses' pedophiles, rapists and court cases against them not also be true?

It is not mentioned in the article but the woman, who ingratiated herself to and then fleeced her neighbor, is an active Jehovah's Witness.  I know this because she was in my congregation and after this story became general knowledge, we had many "local needs" talks, re: forgiveness regarding it.  Did this woman get disfellowshipped?  Well, no, she did not.  What she got after being in prison for only six weeks was "public reproof." - Jonathan Waterhouse

Jehovah's Witnesses (JWs) love this, because, to them, it means they are being persecuted for their righteousness, when in actuality, it is a matter of the protection of everyone's human rights, which JWs deny to themselves and others by refusing to allow their members to have necessary,life-saving blood transfusions, allowing and protecting known sexual predators of adults and children to be in their midst, while failing to warn other congregation members and ostracizing the victims, thus killing people, tearing families apart and further traumatizing the victims and their families. 

How Ray Franz, former Governing Body Member was Disfellowshipped

ALERT: Just Leaked from Watchtower Society Branch Office (Posted July 23, 2014)

Regarding the above link:  This is how the Governing Body absolves themselves from responsibility for their dictated "changes" in the secret Elders' Handbook (Shepherding Book). The letter (link above) also means that the Watchtower Society will also not be held responsible financially for the pain and suffering of victims of sexual predators sued after this edict goes into affect.  Given that the congregations now only have a maximum of $5,000, then no entity is going to be hurt financially.  The Governing body is not only protecting themselves from criminal charges, but also protecting their money.  Personally, I hope the CO's and the BOE's all have good liability insurance, because it appears as if they are going to need it, if they don't refuse to follow the edicts of the Governing body, and do right by the victims and help bring criminal charges against the predators.

EXCERPT: "In chapter 3, paragraph 23, cross out the existing sentences in the last bullet point.
In chapter 3, in the subheading preceding paragraph 25, cross out the words “Branch Office” and replace them with the words “Circuit Overseer.”
In chapter 3, paragraph 25, in the first sentence, cross out the words “branch office” and replace them with the words “circuit overseer.”
In chapter 3, paragraph 25, in the penultimate sentence of the first bullet point, cross out the words “branch office” and replace them with the words “circuit overseer.”
In chapter 3, paragraph 25, second bullet point, at the end of the third sentence, cross out the words “branch office” and replace them with the words “circuit overseer.” Cross out the sentence “If he disagrees, he may submit a letter along with the elders’ letter of explanation, stating why he does not accept the recommendation.” Write in the margin the following: “See letter dated July 13, 2014.”
