There have been many gratifying moments during the Royal Commission's investigation into the Watchtower Society's handling of child abuse cases. Pulling apart the inept Dr Appewhites "expert" testimony, incompetant dozy elders hung out to dry, O'Brien and Toole's obfuscations and outright lies to name but few.
Surely though in the long term in order to secure adequate redress, or compensation, for victims the grouping together of the WTBTS with other of Chrisendom's churches, is tantamount to admitting complicity in the sins of all reliigous institutions. In other words the JW's are a church of sinners just like any other.As I understand it each org will contribute an amount comensurate with the no of their members and other calculations such as no of cases of abuse etc.So far the big boys (contributors)will be the Catholic Church and the JW's.The FDS better start thinking on their feet as to how they are gonna explain this one away.
"Get out of her my people if you do not want a share in her sins"
The innocent's cries have been heard 'clear up to heaven ' indeed.
