“The power of the institution must never again be allowed to silence a child.”
So says Royal Commissioner Peter MaClellan following his time speaking to over 4,000 survivors of sexual abuse within institutions, over half of which were faith based. We know 1,006 of those took place and were reported to the Jehovahs witness organization. Thats some statistic,but my question is what do you guys think the org can or is willing to do to get over the "Jehovahs good name is more important than your sufferings" attitude. That belief is compounded by the idea that all will be well in the new system so giving in to your woes now shows lack of spiritual strenghth.
While this attitude prevails, witness children will indeed continue to be silenced by the ORG, never mind the problems of the two witness rule.
