    Interesting reading. Her protesting like that near the hall is not going to do anything. Those attending that hall are trained by WT to view people like her as evil liars, apostates. That sort of thing would never happen in Jehovahs organization. Sad for both sides.

    I have another view skin.

    Her protest has already caused the organization to vigorously deny it protects pedophiles; however when readers consider the kinds of rules that prevail in JW organization they will probably sympathize with the lone protester.

    Moreover, her physical presence makes JWs feel awkward regarding the issue at hand - especially the comments about the two witness rule. The negative publicity is prominent, it cannot be ignored, it is an issue JWs would prefer to go away.

    While JWs may construe the media attention as "persecution", they need to be reminded that Jesus said his followers would be persecuted for his name's sake - not for controversial child abuse policies and procedures.

    The fact that her protesting has got media attention is great the more that this type of thing hits the media the more people are going to be aware that the JW religion is a cult and one to stay away from.
