Jehovah’s Witness Policy Being Challenged In Court

KVBC, Jan. 10, 2003

A church policy followed by thousands of Jehovah’s Witnesses is being challenged in court. It’s a policy some say protects child molesters and forces victims to suffer in silence. News 3’s Anqunette Moon [] reports according to the lawsuit, the church is accused of covering up allegations of sexual abuse by church elders.

The people who rallied this morning say victims of child abuse in the Jehovah’s Witness church are routinely told to say nothing and just put their trust in God. Well, members of the support group Vacation? Short break? Day trip? Get Skip-the-line tickets at GetYourGuide.
