To give you a little background: each congregation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is led by a group of men with authority to teach their members and discipline or counsel those who commit a “sin,” or are “spiritually weak,” meaning they do not attend regular services or meetings and/or do not participate in the door-to-door preaching activity; basically the elders ensure that their congregation or “flock” is running smoothly and meeting the requirements that the WBTS sets out for them.When a sin or wrong-doing is brought to the elder’s attention they form a “judicial committee” a group of maybe three or four elders to meet with this person who committed the sin and find out the details of said sin and determine whether or not this person is contrite.

Please, note in this article that, not only have I quoted material from this book, but I have also uploaded copies of these quotes directly from the book and attached them below so you can see this for yourself.

Years later, when I broached this subject with certain family members as to why my case was handled this way, I was told there may have been a misunderstanding on the part of one of the elders; probably not all rape or sexual abuse cases are handled this way, maybe God directed to make that decision for some mysterious reason; etc.

Ok, I thought to myself, maybe mine was an isolated case and others haven’t had to go through my ordeal.

All of this being said, in , a list is presented of what should be considered “brazen conduct” or “loose conduct” which is defined as “filth[iness], lasciviousness, wantonness, unbridled lust,...outrageousness, shamelessness, insolence." What are some actions that would fall under this category?

Below is a quote from Child sexual abuse is thrown into the same category as association with a disfellowshipped (excommunicated) person and adultery???

In any case, that is not the reason why I am writing this piece.
