The news is out: [The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office reportedly is investigating whether the Jehovah’s Witnesses repeatedly failed to report child sexual abuse allegations to authorities in what is believed to be the first wide-scale examination by a U.S. law enforcement agency.
The attorney general’s office told USA TODAY it “cannot confirm or deny the existence of investigations.”
But Mark O’Donnell, a former Jehovah’s Witness who left the religion when he was 46, said the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office interviewed him last summer at his home in Baltimore. Then he was subpoenaed to testify before a statewide investigating grand jury in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.]
Waiting for the day when common sense will prevail and the religious tax exempt status will end.
