I'm under the impression that the GB of the WTS would never apologize to the extent what the pope did publicly unless they were forced to by law.
The obvious reason being that that would make them look every other religion out there like Christendom.
I never got the expressive word that it was indeed the religion's polices regarding these kinds of problems to deal with them internally, was the cause of these crimes
to occur in the first place and to continue to occur as some of these priests were just simply relocated.
There was a signed and sealed edict that was approved by the then acting pope some 20 or 30 years ago that was created in the Vatican , that put forth the motion
that pedophilia crimes by priests or others in the church would be dealt with internally by administrators.
And if someone in the church was to take the problem outside of the church to legal authorities lets say they would be in hot water.
Corruption and power always seem to go hand in hand don't they !
