@sparrowdown: "David Splaine with a whiteboard, a pointer and a list of the three D's of fighting child abuse accusations.
No joke, back when the Royal Commission caused its initial buzz in the community, the COBE of my congregation taught us a mantra for the platform to remember whenever a householder confronted us on the child abuse issue. He called it "The Three C's:
We don't Condone it.
We Condemn it.
And we don't Cover it up."
I remember riding home with my parents after that meeting and my father repeating it in the car for us to lock it into our memories. So, your Triple D theory is not far off from what was instructed of Witnesses back in 2015!
