Ireland: A Failure To Bear Witness?
That is an excellent article!It names CIR, and their convention it held in London, Zalkin law Firm, and Geoffrey Shannon from Ireland.It is very specific revealing the harm it has done to individuals who have reported these things in the past and try to do so anonymously, and have even done so feeling that they would be supported, and actually they were shunned.It seems as though this movement is gaining momentum, eh?I like what Geoffrey said "there is a premium placed on the institution, to the detriment of the welfare of the children".. and he also widens the view of the problem of Jehovah's Witnesses to "an increasing scrutiny on the religion worldwide."The article includes Britain, Australia, and the U.S., and how do you like him saying this was only the beginning? Saying that the Catholic Church could once again provide a model for handling that case is coming to light in Jehovah's Witnesses?He is a very clever and a very sincere man you can see by saying, "allowing any institution to be beyond the reach of state laws is dangerous." And "nothing predicts like the past we know that those who ignore the lessons of History are doomed to repeat its mistakes" and "I think this is a defining moment in Ireland as we learn lessons from the past"That will get Ireland on board they can be the first to say, " yes we do not ignore the lessons from the past!"
As others have noted, it takes "Satan's" world to expose the failings of JW organization's child abuse "policies".
A well written article that will make disturbing reading for any thinking JW who cares to read it.
Is anyone able to provide a set of hi-res scans of the actual "A Failure To Bear Witness" article?
