Stuckinarut: We have seen that the society falls back on the line "It is the victims right to approach the authorities" during all the abuse claims.
They use this excuse to try and defend the passive lack of action in failing to report suspected cases of abuse.
That excuse peed me right off. The WTS claims that they don't report because the process could traumatize the victim. What a lame and pathetic excuse.
The WTS has used children for years and years to take on the court system.
First they started with the flag salute challenge back in the 30s and 40s. Did they care then if the legal system would traumatize those children? No. They didn't give a flying **** if the children would be traumatized by being pulled out of school, beat up, and then be taken to court to make sure the WTS won their court cases. They didn't care that their legal challenge resulted in one boy even getting castrated. They didn't leave it up to those kids to decide to go to court - they let those kids be charged and dragged into court.
Then came the blood transfusion challenges. Does the WTS care about those children being traumatized by the court system? No. Of course not. The WT lawyers and blood police are there in a heartbeat when a child's life is in danger, filing court papers, putting the child through all sorts of legal hoops and processes, regardless of how traumatizing it is to the child facing death. They don't give the kid the choice to take it to court when it is their precious blood ban on the line.
And now...to make the excuse that "it is up to the victim" because "the legal system traumatizes the victim". As though the WTS cares about the victim. They never have and they never will. Their history proves it. It is a pathetic excuse.
