One of the comments from the above article (from Stephocles) stated very well how JWs bring this spiritual dilemma upon themselves by treating child abuse as a SIN instead of a CRIME. Treating this as a sin allows them to forgive the pedophile and even eventually appointing him as an elder.
Stephocles commented: It’s disgusting that so many church people choose to believe that these issues can be settled with counseling and prayer.
Turns my stomach.
As if a survivor’s life is some kind of learning experience on a perv adult’s “faith journey.”
