So as we all know, the Australian Royal Commission has it on record that a "Child Safegaurding Policy" document was produced hurriedly at the tail end of the Australian Royal Commission.
The Commission was told by the Society representatives that this would be "freely available to all congregants and interested people".
The commission quizzed the brothers as to whether it would "be freely handed out, or simply handed to those who requested it"
Either way, it was to be FREELY AVAILABLE.
So imagine the surprise of one our fellow faders who attended a KH yesterday to ask for a copy!
She politely and respectfully asked the brother at the door for a copy. He knew nothing about it, so called another Elder over. He then called yet another Elder, and yet another! She was surrounded by three Elders who quizzed her (interrogated) about why she wanted it, what it even was, etc.. They replied that they would have to "ask the branch about it".
45 Mins later (while the meeting was proceeding), she left with no document, no help from the clueless Elders, and proof that the clear directions from the Australian Royal Commission has been ignored by the Society!
