Witnesses Settle Sex Suits

Silentlambs, a victim's rights group, reported last week that the Jehovah's Witnesses have settled lawsuits with 16 people who claimed they were sexually abused by church elders or that church brass failed to respond to their allegations. The group asked that the church change its policy regarding reported sexual abuse. The settlements, most of them in California, were settled in February and March. The Jehovah's Witnesses would only comment that they were happy the lawsuits had been resolved.

The church's headquarters, Brooklyn Bethel, are located in Brooklyn Heights.

    JWs are once again covering up their crimes against children by enforcing gag orders against the victims. Since 2002 the Catholic Church has refused to gag their settlement victims. Jws could take a lesson from them and learn silencing victims is never in their best interests. We are glad they are happy the cases are resolved and hope to make them a lot happier with many more cases to follow.

    The sooner the JoHos leave Brooklyn the better.
