Pedophiles are despicable. Anyone who preys on a trusting child is evil. Those who choose to close their eyes to evil are equally reprehensible. The Watchtower claims to abhor pedophilia, but as official policy it protects abusers from exposure and punishment. The rationale has always been that Jehovah’s Witnesses had to keep such wickedness secret in order to protect Jehovah from reproach. What satanic claptrap! In reality, Jehovah expects elders to protect children from predators. That is their primary obligation. Of course it is too late now. There is nothing the Watchtower can do to save themselves from the coming wrath.
