The WTBTS will only make changes if the 'News' affects their bank balance.
They do not give a shit what the R and F think and would just loftily look down their noses with a 'Fine! We'll live forever without you then! You're all DF'd or DA'd whatever they do now.'
And of course, 'no matter what the News is', the majority will NOT believe it.
I can hear my mother now: 'It's all lies and persecution from Satan!' (Big sigh from Gill who is sick to the back teeth of nasty JW relatives!)
Any changes will just be 'New Light'. They'll wriggle and twist out of this just like Houdini and come out of the mire smelling of roses to the JWs who 'want' to and 'have' to believe it.
If it's over blood, the answer will be 'well Jehovah knows that its safe for us to have it now.'
If it's over misappropriation of funds, the answer will be 'well, we serve Jehovah not men.'
If it's over the sex abuse cover ups, the answer will be that 'men chose to cover it up, not Jehovah and now he is revealling the truth to keep his people clean.'
Perhaps I aught to work for the WTBTS propaganda machine. I know, whatever it is, they've got it covered....believe me! Any 'News' will be like dropping a cup of water on that fire in Hemel Hempsted....pointless.
Sorry! That's just my considered opinion since first reading about the 'News'.
I hope that I'm wrong....but I don't think I am....sadly.
