    Because it might contain names including prominent JW leaders. And because it probably involves cases that prominent JW leaders have been involved in (mis)handling.

    If that's the case, then almost any amount of bad publicity, or financial sanction, is preferable to actually releasing the documents.

    The main concern is that the WTS is trying to save its own public image in review of what the ARC did recently.

    ........and for that the WTS will pay out millions.

    holding onto that kind of information sure gives somebody a lot of control.

    Dies not hinge on a written record. Knowledge is enough.

    Ultimately, the parents should protect their kids and when parents fail to do that, the kids suffer; and then the kids sue watchtower. - Fisherman

    If you had good reason to believe that your dog was aggressive but you let it roam free in the park you would be morally and legally liable when it attacked a child.

    Try telling the judge that the parent should have done a better job of protecting their child.

    If you had a document that proved you knew in advance that the dog was a danger to children the court would be right to demand that you hand it over.

    How does it feel to be an apologist for those who expose children to dangerous pedophiles? Who could have guessed that this is the thing Jehovah's Witnesses would become best known for?

    If that was actually the case, do you really think that such a person would be put in or included in such a list? There's is no mandate to put anybody on that list, only according to church workings.

    Good analogy Cofty

    Fisherman is a apathetic ignorant asshole, he professes to be a Christian which is surprising as well.

    It's a Pandora's Box. Say the names of some who were actually innocent of any child abuse were to be released to the public domain. Countersuits would proliferate. Releasing ALL of the names of any who might POSSIBLY have once been suspected of wrongdoing would be wrong. Maybe the focus should be on the "clergy class," the elders, ministerial servants and other titled members who abused their authority when it came to children.

    IMO there is a lot of emotional response that clouds clear thinking on this issue. Every organization in the world has its' secrets. Yes, the Watchtower has been a molester's paradise. Act repentant, your secret is safe. Do it again, you're DF'd but your secret is safe. Rinse, repeat. I think that there is change in the wind, though.

    Fisherman stated, " Who in their right mind would trust their 10 year old girl or 8 year old boy with a grown man ? - and then blame the Watchtower using your excuse . "

    Well, I can think of at least one very famous example ( I'm sure there are more ) of the idiot elders who were in Candace Conti's old congregation who actually ASSIGNED an adult Jonathan Kendrick to work with a young 10 year old Candace Conti ALONE , so your theory has many holes in it. Then he took her back to his house and molested her.

    Bottom line is elders in JW congregations are following direction from the WT legal department in PREVENTING police authorities from getting FIRST access to ANY JW child abuse cases - because they instruct the elders to report to WT legal FIRST ! Which is a crime in and of itself. Because THEN it allows more needless time to go by before police can do their investigative work into each and every child abuse case. And wasted time is something that a molested child cannot afford. Meanwhile Joe freaking pedophile keeps molesting the children while WT legal delays the child abuse case by their controlling financial " hush money " wrangling to keep everybody quiet. It's just disgusting.

    Until WT Society finally gives instructions INSISTING that elders contact police authorities FIRST before ANYTHING else- the WT Society's child abuse policies will remain ineffective and disgustingly criminal. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    Maybe someone should ask Fisherman what his opinion of the suitability of the JW child protection policy is? Given his ability to have an opinion on everything else I am sure we would get a quick response. I'm a bit busy but I nominate @dubstepped to have a go perhaps?
