My Mom had a shepherding call last night from two Elders.
She raised the issue of the Paedophile problem within the organisation.
The Elder admitted that the problem "was very real" and that at Conventions in particular they have all paedophiles present under strict watch by the attendants/watchers - not allowing them to go to the toilet alone.
He also admitted that the Elders know ALL paedophiles who are present at conventions and meetings and that much work 'goes on' behind the scenes to reduce the risk.
However, he did admit that there was nothing that could be done about them and that they were entitled to attend public meetings. He said that 'their hands were tied'.
What are your thoughts?
