Some former JW protesters are wasting their time and energy "exposing" or criticizing the Watchtowers 2 witness rule here's why:
Lets suppose the Governing Body changes this and expells anyone accused of child molestation even if accused by one person. Would that solve the problem? Would the community and congregation be safe?
NOT AT ALL!!
01.) The pedophile would just be reinstated within a year or so.
02.) No one in the Congregation is ever warned or given the reason for the disfellowshipping
03.) Victims are prohibited from warning others.
04.) The police are not called even if required by law (Stephanie Fessler, Gonzalo Campos)
05.) Victims and family are discouraged from calling police.
06.) Elders are instructed NOT to cooperate with authorities to help encarcerate a pedophile even under court order or subpoena. They become complicit to pedophilia under the ecclesiastical privilege.
So if we really think about it, what good is it if the WT expelled pedophiles with only 1 accuser when his depravity and crime is kept hidden from the law, congregation and community and within a year he is back in the congregation with unsupervised access to children?
What needs to be exposed is how they refuse to turn in the database of pedophiles and how they're being fined $4,000.00. They need to be exposed how they refuse to call police. They need to be exposed how they ignore subpoenas to testify and cooperate with authorities to encarcerate pedophiles. They need to be exposed on how they disfellowship victims that warn others about the molester.
