OK, let's break this down....
something bigger is on the horizon than Dateline, BBC, CBC, Sunday (Australia), and all other TV programs which exposed the sexual child abuse cover-up
Does this mean another television program? Which tv news program is larger than Dateline or the others? Or a large newspaper which is carried around the world? New York Times maybe? Howard Stern via Sirius?
I can hardly wait to tell you and those at Watchtower headquarters (if they are reading this) the news.
So is it only going to be Barb that spills the beans? Or will she be on tv herself? Hard to figure this one out...
big ammunition to fight WT injustice with
What injustices does the WTS carry out? Disfellowshipping is the top one. Killing jw's through the blood doctrine is right there next to it.
So far I've not heard any information that would mean what I'm expecting to happen won't, so I can hardly wait until next week.
This sounds as if Barb is relying on some media outlet to provide this news. As we went through with Dateline, I believe it was delayed a week or two from the initial expected air date. So far, it sounds as if this news will hit the TV airwaves.
thousands of letters in protest to our former "Mother," yes, I believe it will be a Time magazine cover story. It's up to us, guys and gals to make this happen.
OK, so it's not coming out as a magazine story. Protest what exactly? Those injustices? Former mother only means those who have been df'd from the org are primarily affected by this news. DA's don't count - they did that themselves.
But I might be misleading you.
if I was still a JW and found out about this, I really believe I would immediately walk away from the WT and never look back. I sincerely hope that thousands upon thousands do just that when they read for themselves how they have been bamboozled, duped and hoodwinked!
For some reason, the WTS practice of df'ing doesn't seem to fit with this statement. For a staunch JW to walk away, it would almost take an angel from Jehovah himself to tell them that the WTS was wrong. Does this news have something to do with the WTS admitting they are not God's true Organization? Why else would a jw feel duped?
This information won't bring WT down immediately, but we, by our activism can cause it to lose all credibility in the eyes of the world and among their members. Just think what that will do to their arrogance.
The only arrogance that the WTS has to worry about is with their claim of being God's only chosen organization. Remove that claim, they are nothing.
I will be demanding an apology from the WT and if I know you all, you will do the same.
If the WTS flat out lied about their claim of divinity, then I would want an apology also. But if they df'd me wrongly, I guess I would want an apology too. But then again, df'ing doesn't fit here either. Courts around the world could care less about how they punish former members
I knew the moment I saw it what it will do to the organization, but my background is a bit different than most of you.
Was this information passed on from someone in Bethel currently? Or was this information taken from Bethel just prior to Barb leaving? If Barb had it for the last several years, why did she just now present it? It seems that she just recently came across it. Is there a GB member that is trying to do the right thing and bring the org down? This could be very major news indeed. Imagine a gb member opening all of the gb meeting files to the public along with everything else.
Oh well, I'll let everyone else take a stab at it.
