Who are protecting the children?

Quote :

While Jehovah's Witnesses as a whole abhor paedophilia and the Watchtower denounces child abuse, faulty and self-serving policies have contributed to paedophilia occurring in the organisation that could have been prevented.

The result has been harm to thousands of child victims and distraught parents, and the Watchtower Society paying millions of dollars in settlements

BBC Radio 4 - July 23rd 2015

Jehovah's Witnesses and Child Sexual Abuse
Quote :

In June, the High Court ruled that the Jehovah's Witnesses organisation was liable for sexual abuse committed by one of its members.

The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Britain - to give the group its official name - had failed to take adequate safeguarding steps when senior members of the organisation were aware that a fellow Witness was a known paedophile.

It was the first civil case in the UK of historical sexual abuse brought against the Christian-based religious movement.

The BBC's Religious Affairs Correspondent, Caroline Wyatt, explores the implications of the Court's decision and investigates the Jehovah's Witnesses explicit policy of attempting to deal with all allegations of sexual abuse in-house.

The Report has gained access to confidential internal documents, sent out only to those who are senior in the Jehovah's Witnesses. These reveal the organisation's reluctance to involve the secular authorities in cases where a crime has been committed by one Witness against another.

Caroline Wyatt hears from former Witnesses who have suffered abuse and who claim that the organisation's doctrine and procedures have allowed offenders within the congregation to avoid prosecution.

'Paedophiles repeatedly promoted to positions of authority in Jehovah’s Witness church royal commission told'

Quote :

Officials in the Jehovah’s Witness Church destroyed notes, including those involving allegations of sexually assaulting children, in case they fell into the “wrong hands” — like those of their wives.

Church Elder Max Horley told the child sex abuse royal commission today that it was protocol to destroy notes including those he made during meetings between another elder Bill Neill and the teenage girl who accused him of abusing her.

Quote :

Earlier the royal commission heard that the Jehovah’s Witness church repeatedly promoted paedophiles to positions of authority and never reported any case of child abuse to the police.

Church elders could now face criminal charges for concealment of serious indictable offences and failure to disclose sexual offences against minors, counsel assisting the commission Angus Stewart SC said.

I was going to write a sumary of all the evidence given to the commission and analyze the conclusions that were reached.
The commission has now finished taking evidence and are asking the Watchtower representative to present what they suggest needs to change to protect children in the congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses.

The commission has stated that they were mislead as to the role of Geoffrey Jackson and his oversight as a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses.
He is at the moment in Australia and the commission are seeking his presence to explain  the policy that the Governing Body has put in place to protect children.
Should he agree to attend the commission, they will meet at some time next week.

There now follows a sumary of the commission and as Katie Kitten has done an excellent job, I will leave it  to her to analyze the 7 days of hearings.

'Governing Body member Stephen Lett on the official JW.org website claiming the child abuse accusations are apostate lies even though the JW organization has been found guilty of not protecting children in multiple trials and have been forced to pay out tens of millions of dollars in damages'

Quote :

Another way we can contribute to the oneness: rejecting false stories that are designed to separate us from Jehovah’s organization.
As an example, think about the apostate-driven lies and dishonesties that Jehovah’s organization is permissive toward pedophiles. I mean, that is ridiculous, isn’t it!
If anybody takes action against someone who would threaten our young ones, and takes action to protect our young ones, it is Jehovah’s organization. We reject outright such lies.

Quote :

Mr Stewart said the church’s own files reveal 1006 allegations of child sex abuse made against church members since 1950 but the Jehovah’s Witnesses dealt with them using “Biblical standards” and not the police.
