Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Response to Inquiries on Child Abuse

Mr. Brown: Child abuse is an evil. It’s an evil of our time; it’s an evil in our society. And so
we abhor it. The Bible says you should “hate what is bad” and that certainly
would include child abuse.
We have a number of initiatives we’ve taken to make sure children are protected.
And one is to make sure parents are educated. And over the past 10 to 15 years,
we’ve published numerous articles and other materials, especially for the elders,
telling them what needs to be done to help those who have been victimized in this
way.

Mr. Brumley: Our top priority is to protect the victims. And we want to make sure that
whatever steps need to be taken are taken, both by the elders, by the relatives, and
by the congregation in general. Our second priority has to do with the
perpetrators. We are concerned about their receiving the help they need. Our
third priority is to see to it that secular authorities are indeed informed of the
accusation.

Mr. Brown: We have no objection to the laws of the land that come into play to be enforced
on whatever has taken place there. Crime is crime. And we recognize there are
penalties for crimes committed.
When we speak of child abuse, we have to look at society as a whole. This has
become a burning issue in the last 20 or 30 years. And so society in general has
been, more or less, plagued with this problem. And all sorts of organizations and
agencies are grappling with how to best handle this.
