this video will be played at one of the clam meetings in march 2016.. the content is kind of old news because it is a recut version of a previous video produced for the elder's school.
however, it's still significant because it shows that the organization still has dissenting brothers in positions of leadership.. my thanks to the leaker.
feel free to claim credit here.

many members of this forum speculate that the lawsuits faced by the watchtower society are leading to its demise or at least putting incredible pressure on its ability to function as it has in the past.
the reports from wt and awake articles regarding the catholic church give credence to these members arguments.. note: comments by the society often have them taking the moral 'high ground'.
examination of the australian royal commission testimony and findings would leave any 'thinking person' shaking their head in disbelief.

baptism for young jw's is not the same as that practiced by other denominations, and it carries a lot of potential for harm.
getting baptized as a young person in association with the jw organization is harmful to young ones who as they are maturing, wish to exit from the clutches of this captive religion.. when you see young ones, such as the one in the photo below, get baptized, doesn't your heart just sink, knowing the jw religion has caught another victim in its web of deception and abuse?.

a primary school headteacher has been mocked on twitter after claiming that evolution was “a theory” and there was “more evidence that the bible is true”..... she has attempted to dismiss her stupidity as just her personal opinion but it was tweeted from her headteacher account.. even more worrying was the mealy-mouthed response from her employers... a spokesman for blackburn diocesan board of education said: “as a diocese we state all schools should teach the full national curriculum, which includes ‘adaptation of plants and animals and that adaption may lead to evolution’.”.
what chance do the children have being taught by a stupid teacher employed by an even more stupid bunch of theocrats?
this is why there should be no such thing as a "church school".
