Currently the CO is visiting the congo (congregation). Sadly I was not paying much attention to his talk and by the time he got to something interesting I wished I was listening.
He was babbling on about identifying a "pattern" and how the JW's have a pattern of identifying the truths (trininty, hell, etc). It got interesting when he bgean to say dont worry about the mistakes made, we have a pattern of truth and these mistakes should be ignored (my paraphrase). It seems to me the pattern is not a pattern of truths but a pattern of mistakes. And dont forget the pattern of discovering "New light" once it becomes blatantly obvious that the old "story" was wrong.
Then the brother goes on to dismiss the TV news story regarding child abuse. Implying that there is no problem, the story was slanted, we got it all under control and so on. What really rubbed me was he brought out how we have the "two witness are required" policy and this will prevent these problems from occuring. The "two witness" being required IS the problem. The chance of a second witness is pretty slim thus allowing the criminal to continue in his depravity.
Cant wait for Sundays new and enlightening information
