Jehovah’s Witnesses Ordered To Pay $20Mil In Child Sex Abuse Case!

The victim woman sued Watchtower, the Fremont, California congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Kendrick in 2011. Her lawsuit contended that Kendrick molested her over a two-year period beginning when she was 9 years old. She is now 26.

Victim’s attorney says “the verdict is significant”. Jehovah’s Witnesses were ordered to pay more than $20 million dollars to a girl who was allegedly sexually abused by one of its members, according to MSNBC.
The Alameda County Superior Court jury found the religious group partly responsible, as they concluded that the elders who managed the congregation knew that Jonathan Kendrick – the man accused of abusing her – had recently been convicted of sexually abusing another child, but had kept his past record hidden.

  1. The Jehovah’s Witnesses have a policy within their religion that protects pedophiles.

    The official policy is that the elders of the “Church” are supposed to handle the matter internally, without contacting the police. They do this so that shame will not be brought on the religion.

    It’s important that they keep a squeaky clean image to the public. Remember they believe they are the only “True” religion and all other Christian Churches are under the control of Satan. JW’s are not supposed to sue other JW’s or involve the police or courts.

    They believe these are Satan’s organizations and any crime by a JW should be dealt with internally.The elders will contact the police ONLY if they’re forced to by state law. Otherwise they are forced to follow official policy from headquarters. Some states require that “priests” or “pastors” report child abuse to the authorities. If they are not forced to report them than they cover it up.
    You might actually get a unreported pedophile knocking on your door next time they show up peddling pamphlets and selling “Eternal Life".

    1. That is an outright lie.
      Authorities are appreciated and always notified.
      Obviously the pervert was PUBLIC... anyone with a brain could find out; whether in any "church" or not.
      Why did her parents not call the police?
      Why would she wait so long?
      An awful thing is at hand here but the Fact is they strive to live by bible standards.If anything, if it is true, then the creep hid and there are creeps all over the world, school, church, anyplace there are kids.

  2. Nothing under the sun can be hidden forever
