    Another way I thought it draw attention is in the political realm. Politicians love to hang their hat on the right cause. Personally, I think there should be mandatory reporting in EVERY state, and the clergy should not be exempt from reporting any abuse involving children. This is an issue that I think even members of mainstream religion could hang their hat on. I think there could be a case made that not reporting abuse could violate a child's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, so no one should be exempt from it.

    Other equally sized or smaller religious groups like Scientology and the LDS get much more negative press.

    What I do wonder if there are a just a handful of JWs who work in various news organization...say NBC or CNN...and they can subtly nudge unfavorable stories to the bottom of the pile.

    I disagree that other small groups have received wider media attention than JWs. The attention Scientologist hsvebteceived has been predominantly due to some members who are well-known individuals. The recent documentary did not gain widespread attention. Mormons have received relatively little attention - esp for their response to child-Sex allegations.
