'John Redwood' on today's Atlantic blockbuster about Jehovah's Witnesses and child abuse - 2019-03-22
Mark O'Donnell, also known as 'John Redwood' to the ex-JW community, was featured in an amazing Atlantic piece that went live today, written by Douglas Quenqua. Mark's journey leaving JWs and then his wife Kimmy eventually joining him forms the backdrop of a stunning article about how the Watchtower is sitting on a database of between 18,000 and 23,000 child molesters that the organization began compiling in detail starting in 1997.
The Bunker: This was a great piece that combined a lot of different threads about JW, but in particular about child abuse.
Mark: I am immersed in the child abuse cases on a daily basis – it's really something how this is all coming together
