    I came across this article in the Australian newspaper The Age.

    It's a couple years old so it may have been brought to everyone's attention before but just in case...

    The church’s spokesman in Australia, solicitor Vincent Toole, says if the church knew of an elder committing or covering up child sexual abuse he would be removed ‘‘from serving in that capacity’’.

    ‘‘Witnesses abhor child abuse and consider the protection of children to be of the utmost importance,’’ he says. He also says shunning is a myth and that baptised members who drift away are not treated badly.

    Shunning is a myth? Really? Well this article is 4 years old but from the ARC hearings it's plain to see that Toole is still churning out the lies!

    Never has a WT rep been so aptly named.
