people....... You are not honest.... You misquote the official policy of Jehovah's Witnesses.
I said that elders should accept the view of secular authorities (mental health professionals). I agree that it is wrong to reject it. I was honest. I said in what I don't agree with the policy. But everything else you mention is..... nonsense.
The top of nonsenses is this:
I know this comes from a good place but the victim is not encouraged by the elders to go to secular authorities. Period. They are told that doing so will bring reproach of the congregation, Jehovah's name and slandering the name of the accused. Going to authorities places their standing in the congregation at risk especially if the matter was dismissed by the elders for lack of two witnesses.
Our book "God's love" directs us in this way:
In rare instances, one Christian might commit a serious crime against another—such as rape, assault, murder, or major theft. In such cases, it would not be unchristian to report the matter to the authorities, even though doing so might result in a court case or a criminal trial.
Child abusing is a serious crime. Jehovah's Witnesses are religion. Somebody 1 here said that the religion does not recognize that category, but recognize only category of sin. Wrong. We know what is sin, and what is crime (Romans 13). Somebody 2 also said that Jehovah's Witnesses must obey and follow the WTBT$. Book "God's love" is published by WTBT$. Somebody 3 else said that the material in the book is only for public, but that we have some secret instructions given to us by... I don't know who.
Somebody 1 , Somebody 2 ad Somebody 3 are certain posters here. I know exactly who, but I don't want to mention their names. They obviously contradict each other.
When you will be honest, then we can continue this conversation. Until then, I will tell you this:
The policy that Jehovah's Witnesses have on how to handle cases of child molestation is without equal in the religious community.
