We can regard as established and scientifically proven the fact that the propensity for good or bad deeds is anchored in human beings everywhere in the world. Whether genocide, willingness to help, homosexuality, social commitment, murder, theft or child abuse - all people are in the average population equally well predisposed or badly predisposed. There is no such thing as the ugly German, the gay Cologneer or the snooty Duesseldorfer. However, all clichÃ©s of this kind express a collective experience that cannot be erased from our perception.
This is a difficult question to pursue, as Jehovah's Witnesses have a firm intention not to disclose data and information about such things to the public and certainly not to government institutions. This, of course, creates the lasting impression that Jehovah's Witnesses have something to hide about these things and are forced to hide certain special conditions within their religious community from the eyes of other people. But seen from the equal distribution of human predispositions everywhere, there should be no significant increase in child abuse among Jehovah's Witnesses.
There are some qualitative differences between the child rearing practices of Jehovah's Witnesses and those found in the rest of humanity that may be conducive to child abuse (including sexual abuse). For where man is disregarded from the highest point of the hierarchy, abuse takes place automatically. It is the constant mental abuse that the Watchtower Society commits against the children of Jehovah's Witnesses by using demonia to increase manipulability and by permanently exposing the children to the impression of demonic presence without the knowledge of the parents who are also blinded.
On page 148 of the Jehovah's Witnesses' Youth Book, young people "ask practical questions, BAND 2", there is a fairly visible example of the Watchtower Society's methods of using its products to make children compliant. For instruction in monetary matters, a boy is depicted holding a "demonized" portemomaia in his hands. The purse is equipped with a ghost head that the average witness does not even notice.
The writings of the WTS are full of these small "harmlessness" and so that a child or a young person cannot escape this influence, he is confronted with these things consistently and regularly already from the youngest years on according to a tight schedule. This is the point that the financial world has in common with the Watchtower Society: Maintaining profitable control over people is more important than people themselves.
The structuring of power within the Watchtower Society is organized from above and gives the so-called elders (who must not be confused with the elders of the New Testament) all the power of disposal that a person can only wish for. The sheep (which must also not be confused with the sheep of the New Testament) are at the mercy of these elders of Jehovah's Witnesses in such a way that the actual right of disposition of the parents is at all times annulled by "recommendation" of the elders. The entire family must submit to the will and views of the elders. This power of the elders represents only the direct extension of the gripping arms of the Watchtower Society.
The spiritual child abuse perpetrated by the faithful and intelligent slave on the children of Jehovah's Witnesses is cemented by the accumulation of power within the institution of eldership in direct and indirect human encounter. In Jehovah's Witness's everyday life, the spiritual limitation of the Watchtower Society is compounded by the permanent pressure to adapt and the everyday fear of the Watchtower's typical sanctions of social humiliation and isolation.
This interplay between the spiritual power of the WTS leadership and the actions of the power-willed assistants on the ground puts the child in a hopeless situation of helplessness and lifelong stillness.
In this situation the sexual abuse of children is facilitated and for many it is only a continuation of the abuse of people that is already practiced on a spiritual level. Just as unnatural celibacy, rejected by the Bible, and the high esteem in which Catholic priests are held, virtually challenge the sexual abuse of children, the demonic rule of the faithful and intelligent slave forces the possibility and temptation of child abuse among Jehovah's Witnesses.
