Jehovah's Witnesses test new legal strategy to combat child abuse claims: Call it incest - 2019-04-18
Watchtower has made the claim that most JW child abuse cases involve incest.
The reason they are making this argument is not that this statement is necessarily true — it's a strategic legal position.
By claiming most JW cases are incestuous, they are attempting to conceal the names of perpetrators of abuse. Their argument is that by revealing the names of pedophiles, you will expose the names of victims, since it's easy to connect the dots between a relative and their victim.
