Jehovah's Witnesses and Child Sex Abuse

Jehovah's Witnesses And Child Sex Abuse

As with other religious organizations, Jehovah's Witnesses have been obliged in recent years to develop child protection policies to deal with cases of child abuse in their congregations. Details of the policy have been published in Jehovah's Witnesses' publications and press releases issued by their Office of Public Information. Some details are found only in letters to elders which, while solely for internal use, have been made available on the Internet.

    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The first duty of a state is to see that every child born therein shall be well housed, clothed, fed and educated till it attains years of discretion.
