Philip Brumley, general counsel for the Watchtower Society makes the following claim: "The policy that Jehovah's Witnesses have on how to handle cases of child molestation is without equal in the religious community." On the other hand opposers of Jehovah's Witnesses say that the abuse policy covers up child molesting and thus the Kingdom Hall's are a safe haven for child molesters. They say the Watchtower Society has created a pedophile paradise because of their abuse policy.
So what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to the child abuse policy of Jehovah's Witnesses? Are opposers of Jehovah's Witnesses telling you the truth or is it they themselves who are trying to cover up and hide the real child abuse policy of Jehovah's Witnesses? Has the Watchtower's child abuse policy really created a pedophile paradise or is it instead just the opposite, a pedophile's nightmare because of being 'a policy without equal in the religious community'? What is reality and what is myth?
The basic policy of Jehovah's Witnesses can be found at the Watchtower website. Lets take a look at the true child abuse policy of Jehovah's Witnesses and the detailed information written in letters and publications about how elders should handle child abuse. Why not take a look for yourself and not simply take the word of opposers at face value?
