Plentiful television reports worldwide state pedophilia amongst the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The organization deliberately hides cases
of sexual abuse towards children in the goal to protect their public image. It doesn't report pedophilia cases to the police and pedophiles
are not punished internally because of the "two witness" rule. If there is only the child victim testifying against the accused, it
is not enough. The accused will be acquitted. According to William «Bill» H. Bowen from http://www.silentlambs.org,
in 2002 the Watchtower
had a database listing 23,720 pedophiles. Today it could go up to 40, 000.
