The Jehovah's Witnesses organisation keeps a sex offenders register that nobody outside the church is allowed to see, a former "elder" tells Panorama.

His sources indicate there are 23,720 abusers on the list - who are protected by the system.

"They [the Jehovah's Witnesses] do not want people to know that they have this problem", he tells Panorama.

why would they want to keep this secret?? yet they slam other faiths and some here actually take pride in posting that other faiths have the problem.. why do they not call the police without calling the big men in New York?

If these abusers exist, and I am not saying they do not...how can the WTS protect them from the law? They cannot. If the victims made out complaints to the officials, the WTS cannot protect them. Have you done any research into how many priests the pope had flown to vatican city to protect them from prosecution? Now there is protection, these ones were actually being sought by the local authorities. Not that I have anything against the catholics, they are humans like everyone else. It is interesting that you people tend to hold the JWs to a higher standard. I wonder where that comes from.

aughra can you prove what you said about the pope... there are many in prison now. one in Mass. was murdered by a contract in prison.. so please show your proof of what you just said..

the problem here is the jws mock all other faiths for having the pedophile problem, the jw org hides it that it the problem

and they went on national tv and said jw pedophiles can go door to door.. so who is hiding who???

Oh please understand I am not mocking the Catholics at all honestly. I am trying to make the point that it would be quicker to list a religious organization that does not have this problem as it is just rampant in the world today. The Catholics are no more likely to do it that Jews or JWs. and visa versa. There were many news stories about ones who got the ticket back to the vatican. When I was in Rome 3 years ago it was all the scuttle butt, the catholic people were protesting the vatican for having them there. I have never heard a witness talk about another religion that way, I ever heard a brother give a talk about it when the Catholics were getting all the publicity. He said don't become haughty, this perversion can infiltrate any organization.
When did this national tv thing happen? Is it still available? It is bizarre to me that they would go on TV and say such a thing, that just doesn't make sense. It sounds more like something someone said on a site like this and just sort of became fact.

Makes you wonder why they would slam the Catholic church for having a service in Latin. Would you call that two- faced?

Hi Dee

they have mass in Latin English and Spanish.. there are a few churches depending on the populations nd where the church is located that will say mass in another language.

yes they are two faced. and not one of the
real ones agree with the thread jace put up they are denying that the article that says the org was involved in an Interfaith conference and it shows the jw rep in a picture with all the other religions that attended..Nomi says it is not true?? it was in the paper and on the internet but she refuses to believe it. says the apostates put it up..

Hey AUGHRA, all churches have pedofiles and perverts. Thats not the question.Its that the wt is hiding them protecting and them. The catholics do to. But the wt is the one that states that "JEHOVAH" is in total control of the wt. FRED FRANZ even said in court under oath that "JEHOVAH" is the editor and head writer. So if "JEHOVAH" is in charge of the wt then he is the one hiding and protecting the ped's.You might not have the right "JEHOVAH" your following over there!!!

That explains why my hotel is full of 8 person families filling up the elevators. If only they could see how foolish their Cult faith is. Maybe I will get to talk to one... Wait, I don't speak a foreign language.
