Testimony of Watchtower Society legal counsel Philip Brumley before the U.S. Congress on June 14, 2000
Presented by Philip Brumley General Counsel for Jehovah's Witnesses Author not available, RELIGIOUS MINORITIES IN EUROPE:PHILIP BRUMLEY. , Congressional Testimony, 06-14-2000.
" Philip Brumley, Watchtower's general counsel, says his religion cannot alter its beliefs and doubts secular courts will demand this.'

We were immediately flattered that Phil Brumley, the HEAD OF THE WATCHTOWER LEGAL DEPARTMENT, so honored us by coming to the hearing, but soon remembered someone telling us that Phil had relatives in the Nashville area. However, Bill Bowen did not follow but went up to Phil Brumley, who was standing with the Watchtower Defendants, and offered him a little stuffed lamb. And just like Mr. Brumley, Mr. Harvey hurts children by what he does.
Who Has a Better Child Abuse Policy?
It is no wonder that Philip Brumley, general counsel for the Watchtower Society could confidently state: "The policy that Jehovah's Witnesses have on how to handle cases of child molestation is without equal in the religious community.
Then how can Philip Brumley, Mario Moreno, or anyone possibly make such a bold statement?
What About All Those Stories?
Even an attorney for the Watchtower Society, Philip Brumley admitted: "There are instances when a situation that should have been reported is not.
