This always really, really pissed me off when I was a JW.
They actually had the audacity to claim that the god who created the universe was somehow involved in the increase of 'kingdom interests' - property in flourishing lands.
Now, as I see it, the world has really suffered since the WTS started out in it's seedy Americanisation of what religion should be:
- The untold suffering of the holocaust
- European civil wars
- The list goes on.............
Yet, I was told that Jehovah god was furthering & advancing the Watchtower Bible & Tract Societys 'talents.'
This generally involved the building/expansion of WTS property.
So, let me get this straight; god was getting all excited about his people expanding the property/printing presses of a corporate organisation, while turning a blind eye to the holocaust, paedophilia, warfare, tsunamis/earthquakes.
Not the god I would want to worship personally.
Yet it shows just how much the JW's have their heads firmly implanted right up their own arses.
Do me a favour.
If God exsisted or was interested in humanity, there are bigger matters for him to deal with than the expansion of the WTS.
