Welcome to the forum Ashley.
You are right. There are pedophiles in many organization including non religious ones.
Just to sum things up. The pedophile problem is particulaly serious among Jehovah's Witnesses for a number of reasons
1. Elders will not report or encourage Witnesses to report accusations of child sexual abuse to authorities unless it it mandated by the state. In fact they tend to discourage such reporting to protect the image of the organization
2. Young girls are often grilled by untrained males (elders) for humiliating details of their ordeal.
3. The two witness rule is applied before any action can be taken against the accused when pedophiles never carry out their misdeeds when others are around...whereas the authorities could easily find corroborating DNA evidence if they were involved in the case.
So in effect, the WTS is failing to protect victims while at the same time protecting the pedophile and allowing him access to other children.
It is interesting in scripture that the two witness rule was not applied when a woman was raped without witnesses in the field. So why don't they apply this scriptural distinction to young children? Wouldn't want to sully the image of God's organization is all I can come up with.
