Wales Online is reporting in an article called “Jehovah cult kicked me out but not the man who raped me, victim claims,” that convicted Jehovah’s Witness rapist Mark Sewell has not been ordered out of the organisation.
In the alarming article, Karen Morgan (who was sexually molested by Mark Sewell) says: “Even if an abuser admits it, as long as they repent, they might not get any discipline at all.
“If they say, ‘I’m sorry, I won’t do it again’ they are left alone and the congregation is never told.”
Not long after the conviction of Mark Sewell in July 2014, Karen spoke to JWR and shared the names of the elders who had remained silent, neither reporting the abuse to the police or helping the police by making statements or supporting her in court during the trial.
Karen, who was herself a member of the Barry congregation, reported to Wales Online, “I have asked why he has not been disfellowshipped and they have not been able to give me an answer,”
Karen was disfellowshipped at 17 for having a boyfriend. Now if she is in public locations she is ignored by Witnesses.
“They won’t talk to me,” Karen said. “But they are allowed to talk to him. That’s how stupid that rule is.”
“All I ever wanted them to do was say sorry,” Karen continued. “Why don’t they just apologise? They are supposed to believe in the bible.”
Karen and another Jehovah’s Witness sex attack victim are attempting to sue the organisation because of what happened to them by elder Mark Sewell. The Watchtower Society has already paid out millions of dollars in the US after settling numerous child abuse cases.
