A Thorough Look at the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Child Abuse Problem

The Jehovah’s Witnesses have an obvious problem with child abuse in their church, one that is exacerbated by the Church insistence on secrecy.

There are the ridiculous ways they internally handle accusations. Like the “Two Witness rule,” which says your account of abuse is only taken seriously by Church elders if another person witnessed it… even though the only other person around may be the abuser himself.

There’s one loophole to that rule: if a second victim comes forth, that counts as another witness. But, as Lloyd Evans points out in his very thorough video on abuse within the Church, that’s like letting an alleged murderer off the hook until he murders again.

The whole 90-minute video exposes the problem within the JW Church and how its leaders have done a horrible job of addressing it:
