From the article:
The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, which serves at the head of the Jehovah Witness organization, may have kept a database of tens of thousands of instances of child abuse and paid millions to keep them hidden.
I’m not in that community, but I have a hazy memory of going down the internet rabbit hole a good decade ago about abuse in the Jehovah Witness community in a series of forums from ex-members.
It makes all this, and the lack of action on the churches part, kind of not shocking. The stories had a running theme of no justice for the victim, and the sexual predator being a known abuser.
I’m glad this is coming to light, and I hope the victims get justice.
