On this week's episode of Too Many Books, Jack and Jack review "What Kind of Watchman Are You?" a book that informs the reader about child sexual abuse in the church and how to watch out for the problem.
“If you have children in your care, even part time, you are a watchman. There is no choice in the matter. The choice is binary, true or false, on or off. You are either a good or a bad watchman. That determination is made by each individual and how seriously they take the role of protecting those in their care. Bad watchmen are ones that break the laws designed to protect our children in order to protect a predator Bad watchmen are also the ones who will remain silent and allow a predator to continue to abuse another day."
"Although one would think that child molestation would be less common among religious people, it is not the case. In fact, religious groups are often targets because of their teachings."
