Thank you once again Blondie for your in depth analysis of this horrid situation.
As the society has most information that is going to press or public is now being proof read by a public relations firm, I would say they are scarcely scratching the surface of what is a deep rooted problem within the org. Hiding it so the publishers will believe the society is doing a really good job of protecting their children. I did not read all the article but is there somewhere in the FLock book that says the elders are to notify other parents of this pervert in the congregation???That is new as well.
Jackson could not give straight answers at the ARC... then it has changed --NOW the one injured does NOT have to sit in a committee with the perp and can have can someone of the same gender with them....
All the information in the article indicates they are presenting it as always being this way when it has not. They truly are being very deceptive in the wording and action taken - only after the heat came down on them.
The society harkens back to elders letter of 1988 - they had a moral code to inform law, even if there was no law in various states and lands. This would have shown JW's to be different than other beliefs but deemed instead to cover their asses, like they still are.
This will soothe the conscience of the congregations for some time. I would say they have achieved their objective. I will not attend the wt studies this month.
