Here is video with J. R. Brown, Organizational Spokesman for Jehovah's Witnesses and Philip Brumley, General Counsel (lawyer) for Jehovah's Witnesses on the matter of how child abuse is treated with the congregations.
Notice how J.R. Brown says that the WT has taken "inititives" against child abuse over the past "10-15 years" and then later states that child "has become a burning issue in the last 20 or 30 years." That leaves over a decade that the WT took no "initiatives" on the "burning issue" of child abuse.
Other J.R. Brown statements:
"Crime is crime."
"When we speak of child abuse, we have to look at society as a whole."
Basically, child abuse happens everywhere. So let's not only focus on the WT Society's problem with child abuse.
