Jehovah Witnesses Child Abuse Scandal in the News

Pressbox (Press Release) -
It was a sad blow Friday July 15, 2005, when the majority of judges in an appeal hearing before the Supreme Court of New Hampshire ruled against continuing a case of child sexual abuse.
It represented a four year battle with hundreds of thousands of donated funds of Jehovah’s Witnesses be spent with law firms in the New Hampshire area to files numerous frivolous motions to prolong and run up costs on the civil case.
Jehovah’s Witness lawyers supported Paul Berry, a convicted child molester, by providing him with free legal assistance to protect his religious right from further convictions of child sexual abuse.
While victims and advocates sat on one side of the court room, Jehovah’s Witness attorneys sat with Paul Berry and offered testimony in his behalf to protect him from further criminal prosecution.
Paul Berry remains a Jehovah’s Witness in good standing and upon his release from prison will be required to make visits to the homes of the public to start bible studies (will he be knocking on your door?)
It is estimated that well over $500,000 has been spent in donated funds of Jehovah’s Witnesses for the legal defense of Paul Berry.
There is a popular saying in the Christian world, “What would Jesus do?”
The idea being in conducting oneself as a Christian one would use Christ as an example to determine the best behavior. Could any person that claims to follow Christ envision a courtroom with Christ supporting the rights of a convicted child molester using funds donated to his ministry to the detriment of victims?
Could we picture Christ and his disciples sitting in a courtroom to support a child molester at his sentencing hearing while ignoring the victim? Jehovah’s Witnesses seem to take pride in making this a practice.
