The JWs actively participate in Prison Visitation programs. From what I remember from reading another thread about prison visits, the consensus is that it is primarily pedophiles who are attracted to the JW Bibble studies inside prison. And, I have read about some of those pedophiles being "sponsored" of sorts by congregations under their release conditions.
This may very well be true in other parts of the world but here in Australia in my experience nothing could be further from the truth .
I have had occassion to visit an incarcerated friend for an unrelated offence to the subject in hand and have met a couple of Elders who engaged in prison visitations in two states, Vict,and Qld.
Neither of them identified themselves as Jw`s to the prison officials doing prison visitations.
And they only went in to see brothers or sisters in prison during normal visiting hours, so they could never see anybody else in those visits.
On the other hand members of the Catholic and Protestant religions identified themselves with prison officials and they could come and go as the need arose anytime of the day.
And visit as many prisoners as they liked that would see them .
Not so the JW`s.
That was a big eye opener for me back then and I`m talking about 30-40 years ago.
