Dozens of Alleged Victims Share Stories of Abuse Within the Jehovah’s Witnesses

The problem isn’t just that the Watchtower Society (which oversees the JWs) didn’t stop the abuse; it’s that they didn’t do enough even after the problems were brought to their attention.

That’s, in part, due to their own awful policies, like the “Two-Witness rule,” which says church elders shouldn’t take a victim’s account of abuse seriously unless another person witnessed it… even though the only other person around may have been the abuser himself.
