Suffer The Little Children

The Jehovah’s Witnesses organisation keeps a sex offenders register that nobody outside the church is allowed to see, a former “elder” tells Panorama.

Bill Bowen, who has spent his lifetime as a Jehovah’s Witness and nearly twenty years as an elder, says the organisation covers up abuse by keeping this database secret.

His sources indicate there are 23,720 abusers on the list [from USA, Canada, and Europe] – who are protected by the system.

“They [the Jehovah’s Witnesses] do not want people to know that they have this problem”, he tells Panorama.

“And by covering it up they just hurt one person. By letting it out, then they hurt the image of the church.”

    The peodo problem is not easy not to solve. Peodos are compelled to go into careers that give them the opportunity to fulfill their fantasies, the first sign anyone involved with working with children is dodgy is easy to spot, confronting the dodgy person is very difficult

    I had a random visit from a JW a couple of weeks ago and I asked about this very list. He said that yes they do have a list of JW who have already been dealt with by the police. They do not deal with paedos themselves, they involve the police then keep the list as a way to protect children/be more vigilant around the said person. They are not automatically cast out. So, is this list a secret list that the police dont know about (not that they do much) or is it a duplicate to keep for themselves? The latter I don’t have an issue with. Was this JW lying to me? He was an elder too he pointed out so he should be in the know…….Thanks
