"The clear and unmistakable fact is the WTS/JWS has in the past kept an internal congregational situation of pedophilia
out and away from the legal authorities of the land, intensionally handling the situation singularly within each congregation.
( similarly as the Catholic religion as done )
This unfortunate procedure was at fault for it lend to individuals to re-offend and create other victims of abuse, even is that individual
was DFed from the congregation. This is what the whole conundrum is all about and rightly so.
Look at it this way AIW if you had a young child a boy or girl who for some reason got in contact with a DFed or DAed JW
and that individual sexual molested your child, wouldn't you be upset and disgusted that no one made it apparent to the proper authorities.
Instead of that person being incarnated behind bars and put under psychological analysis so to protect the community for which he or she was living.
Unless your morally corrupt beyond any sensibility, you would be emotionally distraught as well.
Unlike many of the social moral standards laid down by the ancient Israelites of old such as fornication and adultery,
pedophilia (sexual abuse of children ) is a grievous crime in most modern civilized countries IT IS NOT JUST ANOTHER SIMPLE IDENTIFIABLE SIN.
GET NOW AIW !
If you cant rationalize this AIW you truly are fucked in the head in the worst of ways."
There may have been an indecent where a matter has been mishandled.
But by the same token there is no doubt that the numbers are greatly exaggerated by the Silentlambs group because they apparently have a goal that is not readily seen by the ones who do not want to see it. Their statements and writings are misleading and twisted.
There is no logical or reasonable explanation why the Watchtower Society would want molesters to be in the organization or be servants in the organization. They are simply trying to follow Bible principles in the policy they have in place. It is not sinister. It is not a cover up to try to show we have a spiritual paradise. If that was the case, why not cover up fornication as well. There are far more fornicators than child molesters. Why not keep fornication hush hush to give the appearance of an organization that lives in a perfect spiritual paradise with no wrongdoing whatsoever. It makes no sense. It is illogical. And it is nonfactual. There was an incident I was exposed to in the 1990's and the elders handled it very well. The father was incarcerated and the children were placed in the congregation.
In the Catholic Church it's a lose, lose situation as it is with any organization where the abuse takes place on their turf by their officials while children are in their custody. It's either cover it up or get sued and suffer bad publicity. Is the Catholic Church or any other organization ever blamed for abuse that goes on somewhere else? Just because a person tells someone about abuse does not automatically make them involved unless it's a child. This is something people opposed to Jehovah's Witnesses can't seem to wrap their mind around because they're not interested in facts or truth. How could they be considering their agenda? You should probably read the Humanist Manifesto because that's not who you are. You're not a secular humanist if you've abandoned reason for madness.
