I think the wts is so determined to protect child molesters b/c the vast majority of cases, they are male
I think there's some of that Wednesday, and women absolutely are treated as inferior in that sect, but I think their primary motivation is to remove any and all distractions from the main function which is to sell literature and go to meetings.
If the organization gets bogged down in child abuse it takes away time from selling. Can't have that. It's far easier, and cheaper, to simply bully, threaten, cajole and/or intimidate the victim and the victim's family into silence. That's something easy to understand for a janitor/window washer elder to do. As for the offender, again it's far easier to wag their finger, pretend nothing happened and hope it doesn't again than actually confront the situation. That gets messy and takes away time, money and effort from selling their literature door to door.
At its core, Jehovah's Witnesses don't care one whit for people.
