    Hello guest!

The Jehovah's Witnesses has joined Australia's national redress scheme for child sexual abuse survivors under threat of financial penalties.

It is one of 34 institutions signing up following rules brought in by the federal government to withhold funding from and strip the charity status of groups refusing to join.

The Jehovah's Witnesses was initially named and shamed for holding out.

It flagged its intention to join the scheme in March and has now formally done so.

The other institutions include Tennis Australia, St John Ambulance Australia Queensland, Ipswich Girl's Grammar School, Youth Off the Streets and Scripture Union Tasmania.

Social Services Minister Anne Ruston says this means a total of 37 redress applications can be processed.

"It is clear that the powerful financial, reputational and legislative levers the commonwealth has used have been successful at ensuring institutions understand and recognise their moral obligation to survivors," she said.

"We are also working hard to make sure that every institution with a history of working with young people joins the scheme no matter when a survivor comes forward to access redress."

To date, commonwealth, state and territory governments alongside 526 non-government institutions are in the scheme.

As of last Friday, 11,835 applications had been received and 6208 payments made totalling more than $529.3 million.

It shows just what the GB will do for money.

We need to wait to see if GB will look for “holes in the law” and then try to avoid or delay meeting its obligations to victims. You know, maybe GB is waging a "theocratic war" and has maneuvers on the "battlefield."

I can only guess why WTJWorg refused to join Scheme in first place. This is because joining means acknowledging GB+Helpers+Elders+Legal Department own stake in the event and the inability to sort things out within the JW Organization (for the benefit of the victims, of course). Why did they join after pressure? Because in this way, they will pay significantly less money to the victims.

Essentially what I said back in June 2020, for when certain circumstances are met that they, including others, would join and it didn't have much to do with money, if that were the case, there would not be such a defend for Alt Right narratives back in June, therefore, contradicting. Reasons why you can't take words from an Alt-Right source at 100% at times, i.e. Newscorp who attested to the idea that they would never join at all and giving incorrect reasoning while in reality, some didn't join right away for specific reasons.

That being said, it still does not stop the protesters of the Redress Scheme. But it is kind of miniscule now due to the situation in Australia right now and the fact Australia’s liberal democracy is fractured.

They refused because certain circumstances were not met on their end, and even after the Redress they were still operating as usual, preaching even despite what was going on. This was alluded to in June and December 2020, even in regards to the last update outside of Alt-Right, Centered bias narratives that tends to tag on rumors and speculations into stories in a Qanon type fashion.

Not really because even outside of circumstances, there were some issues with the Redress taking place at the same time with all the legal issues in the background. Evidence to that also is in connection to the AUSTRAC who had no success with authorities, etc., for they themselves failed in relation to The Australian Federal Police amid growing fears and an attempt to dodge obligation to victims.

Circumstances and things taking place in and out of the Redress itself. It was not due to money, for if it was, then the News Corp story regarding ACNC would be somewhat non-existent.

That being said, the Redress will evidently be overwhelmed now in regards to what is taking place in Australia, and they can't really do much outside of institutions where now the rise in abuse and violence is taking place, as is with the spread of explicit material. As pointed again, be careful with the Left vs Right paradigm in regards to media in Australia, otherwise you'll become their sheeple.
