There is Important Dutch News: majority in Dutch Parliament require an investigation into child abuse within JWs
Thanks for sharing this. The watchtower corporations flawed policy on child safeguarding, coupled with their arrogant attitude toward the authorities and media has led to this inevitable situation they now find themselves in. They are their own worst enemy!
What will it take for watchtower leadership to wake up?
Thanks Barbara. I'll see what we can do to help.
Ditto the thanks, Barbara.
Just the fact that it is in the news, just the fact that legislators hear about and have to discuss this, just the fact that WT has to 'deal' with this is good.
The culture of this world must change, it cannot keep 'overlooking' the damage that child abuse does to people and society.
Brokeback WT - "...They can hide behind the biblical reasons for doing so all they want, it ain't gonna save their ass in court with a wise Judge."
Or - more importantly, IMO - exonerate them in the court of public opinion.
Unshackle - "...What will it take for watchtower leadership to wake up?"
I suspect they already have...
...and that most - if not all - of the recent developments we've been seeing are their response.
They even had a visit from a governing body member to inform them about the matter.
Whoever came out probably reinforced that "we are under attack from the wild beast. The end is near. Do whatever we say. Obey and be blessed." It would be interesting to know just how many Dutch Witnesses believe that line and how many are dubious about it and know of the coverup.
