An Open Letter to Jehovah’s Witnesses
Lawyers for the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society quietly deny before the courts that Jehovah’s Witness elders have any obligation to protect children from the crimes of predatory congregants.
An open letter entitled A conspiracy of Silence Soon to End, published by Robert King on e-watchman.com, is being mailed by volunteers to hundreds of kingdom halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom; exposing the Watchtower’s tactics to silence and crush the legal claims of victims of child abuse.
Although the Bible commands Christian shepherds to look after and protect God’s sheep, especially the proverbial widow and orphaned children, few of Jehovah’s Witnesses are aware of the fact that Watchtower’s attorneys argue before the courts that elders have no such solemn duty.
Those of the general public may be interested to know that the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses also admittedly allows even known child molesters to participate in the door to door ministry, provided they are accompanied by another minister. Presumably, the unsuspecting householders are supposed to feel secure in the fact that possibly only one of the Jehovah’s Witnesses knocking upon their door is a pedophile.
From October 15th thru November 15th Jehovah’s Witnesses are engaged in a world-wide distribution of a tract declaring the end of false religion is near. It criticizes the churches for, among other things, tolerating clergymen that sexually abuse children. Admittedly, most of the abusers among Jehovah’s Witnesses are not elders, (clergy) but given the failure of the Watchtower Society’s policies to adequately protect the children of the congregations from pedophiles, it is gross hypocrisy for the Watchtower Society to point their finger at the churches.
Robert King, the author of the book entitled Jehovah Himself Has Become King, makes the case, that, rather than the end of false religion, Bible prophecy points to the imminent end of the child-harming conspiracy of silence on the part of those who bear the name of God before the world.
