I a'm not, never have been a JW, etc.
I have every respect for anyone who does a job well and I feel that they can take pride in that, whatever the job may be.
But I make no apology for banging on about my favourite subject here, and it echoes what others wth personal experience of the JWs are saying.
These people are absolutely NOT qualified to deal with abuse issues, child or adult.
Letting them get involved in these issues is dangerous for the victims, especially child victims.
No disrespect to anybody for how they earn their living, but to accord 'elders' some sort of status in real-world matters, or the 'organisation' as a whole come to that, is non-sensical and can be deleterious for all involved.
