Simon, wait., dont banish him just yet!
I agree that Doubter is a serious pain. In one of our previous thread about the involvement of the Watchtower with the UN, he wasn't providing any logical arguments. Even in this thread, he referred to the letters from Paul in the bible as field service notes. Crazy..
Yet, concerning the pedophiles, his arguments are not completely crazy!
His stand presently is that, statistically speaking, it is not much worst in the JW population compared to the rest of the world. I am not saying he is right, but the argument is at least valid when you compare the stats in Australia.
That being said, on moral grounds, it is absolutely despicable that the Witnesses would not report it to the police, but we never truly examine the question: what are the results from the police?
I am not saying he is right, all I am saying is that his arguments, including the crazy once, could help in looking at this topic from a different angle.
The objectives I seek is to look at things in the angle the JWs try to. And it can help to have someone volunteering to do just that, even if sometimes, he clearly goes off rails.
