The spotlight is on the Witlesses problem of protecting child sex abusers and disfellowshipping those who were sexually violated. I bet the JDubs thought they would be persecuted for their preaching work and announcing God's kingdom not for having more pedophiles than the Catholics as a ratio of members to sex perverts.
The thing that gets me is that we care more about the problem than the JDubs who are high on Watchtower cocaine. Most of them will ignore the news reports as from apostates and are lies just like the Gibbering Body said would happen. More proof that the Hateful Eight are inspired.
