I have something to say just for the record.
I see a lot of hatred directed toward me as if I was the child molester. I am only defending JWs because I feel their policy is the best of all, bar none.
I am not a child molesters. I have never been a child molester and I will never be a child molester. Child molesting is sickening, abhorrent, evil, and disgusting. I cannot see how any one could engage in child molesting. Child molesters should be dealt with far less mercy than fornicators or adulterers because they are destroying innocent lives. It is not a mutual sin.
I am also not saying that ever story out there is a false story. I am quite sure that elders have made mistakes and have disregarded the policy of JWs. I have admitted that. As long as their are imperfect humans in the organization there will be mistakes.
And me and my family have also been effected by child molesting. Don't think I know nothing about the harm that can be done. I have stories also. In my family one family member molested another, a girl. Families were torn apart as is often the case. He was dfed but a couple of years later he was reinstated. He knows and has been told that he will never qualify as a servant. Now, she is grown but when she sees him at the KH, assemblies, or conventions, she almost goes into hysterics and gets phycally sick. Does she blame JWs for the situation. No, she rightfully blames the molester because she knows that JWs teach that child molesting is abhorrent.
Another case involved friends. The man molested a little girl. He was reproved. It went to court and he pled guilty and received probation. He knows he will never be a servant and rightfully so. He also lost his family as a result. Were the parents angry at JWs because the molester was a JW. Of course not, because JWs teach that child molesting is abhorrent. They were mad at the molester and rightfully so. That is why they reported it to the police at the recommendation of the elders. No one has ever been DFed for talking about it or even reproved.
So, yes, I, too have been affected by child molesting. But it is not the fault of the WTS nor is it the fault of ones who defend the child abuse policy of JWs. Put the blame where it belongs, with the molester. And handle your responsibility and report persons who are molesting or who you think or molesting and let the police take care of it if there is a case. All JWs are instructed by the WTS to do just that.
