This is what I would love to hear.
Angus: What I'm suggesting is that you, and by extension, the Governing Body, believe that Jehovah, via Holy Spirit, directs your decisions. Would that be a fair assessment of how procedures and policies are decided upon?
G Jackson: Yes, that is my belief.
Angus: Let me ask this: Did Jehovah, via Holy Spirit, direct the Governing Body to interpret the "two-witness" rule as currently understood, and inact policies based upon that interpretation?
G Jackson: That is my belief, yes.
Angus: Can you understand how disfellowshipping a child abuser, yet not informing the "Superior Authorities" could lead to the further abuse of children as there would be no warning given, espescially for non-witness children? Can you see the difficulty in giving needed help to the abuser as well? Their chances of repeating the offense would be higher without needed help, would it not?
G Jackson: I suppose it could be higher, yes..
Angus: Would it be fair to say that the current policies as regards child protection have, shall we say, flaws, in that they can allow seemingly repentant or unrepentant abusers to repeat the offense, due to lack of involvment with the Superior Authorities and the failure to warn non-witnesses, or cause difficulties in getting the abuser needed help?
G Jackson: ..... Improvements could be made.
Angus: In cases where decisions are incorrect, procedures flawed, and children harmed, would it be fair to say that the Governing Body are at fault? Or would it be Jehovah's fault? Is it possible that the GB mis-interpreted key passages in regards to the "two-witness" rule, or they did not clearly hear Jehovah?
G Jackson: ............... Errrrrr.....ummmm.... ( Looks for hand signal from Legal.)
