Nate, chrysalis, SCPHT, etc.

  • Mood:
I saw a disturbing BBC documentary on Worldlink TV this morning about Jehovah's Witnesses - specifically, how the elders of the church keep a file of over 20,000 suspected offenders which the police do not have access to. Think of the recent scandal w/the Catholic Church...the similaries make me shudder with revulsion. Two institutions whose dogma has led them to criminally neglect the welfare of thousands of children. Jehovah's Witnesses require two witnesses to a crime or a confession by church law - the problem with that is that very rarely are there any witnesses to child abuse, beyond the child. It sickens me. Except this documentary was made a few years ago, before the big blowout with the Catholics. And I had never even heard of it until now. Lord, but the vast majority of the American media is worthless.
