618. Jehovah’s Witnesses in Canada
This problem is currently under investigation in Canada but could sadly apply to Jehovah’s Witnesses in other countries too. The problem is that the religion allows a parallel court system to function instead of involving the police from the very start and let them investigate when sexual child abuse occur.
The children should be allowed to report their abusers to the police. They should be allowed to get real justice and see that their abusers go to prison. This religion robs the children of justice.
It cannot be fun to be part of what we will call a cult as long as they do not give up their internal court system and bring conflicts to the official courts to be solved.
