To me, child molesters should have two choices: 1) death penalty or 2) life imprisonment with chemical castration.
Hi there lynn. I'll tell you my story FWIW.
When I was in the org every rape victim I knew about (child victims or adults) were blamed for the rape 100% of the time. It was spread around the cong grapevine and everyone looked down upon them....the assumption being they must have caused it somehow. I did not know of any perps being JWs though (at the time).
Several yrs after leaving the org I became a mental health professional in a hospital. I ended up treating both victims and perps. Several of my patients were JW victims of JW rapists. 1 in particular stands out in my mind because her perp was her elder/father who constantly interfered with her treatment and constantly threatened her with DFing. He insisted he had been forgiven by the local elders because he repented and my patient said that was true. He said as both her father (she was an adult) and as her elder, it was her scriptural obligation to continue both social and spiritual relationships with her, not limiting her contact with him at all. She was terribly ill and needed a break from being around her perp and from having sex with her husband. Perp/dad said he would have her DFd if she refused to carry on a sexual relationship with her husband and the husband pressed the matter as well. Never mind having sex and having contact with her perp caused her to have flashbacks etc. They did not care. The husband was a real sicko too. They both kept threatening her with DFing if she didn't do what they demanded.
I specifically remember the patient being asked if the perp/dad had contact with children in the org and she said yes. Of course no one in the cong knew about his problem so he was allowed unbridled access to a big pool of potential victims. Oh, and to comment on your ideas for punishment.....I agree with the death penalty for the reason you stated--they cannot be rehabilitated. Life imprisonment with castration is too good for them IMO. A waste of oxygen.
