Is it possible that this "big news" could actually create a division amongst active apostates who are fighting to disrupt the WTS?
It seems that there are two factions regarding the "big news": one is jumping for joy, ready to spread the news far and wide, hoping for lawsuits; the other has poo-pooed the whole thing as overblown nothingness.
For the most part up til now, it's been us(ex-JWs) vs them(the WTS). Of course there were disagreements from time to time and we all had our own ways of dealing with the pain of being duped by the WTS.
But when the child abuse scandal broke and the UN scandal broke, it was embraced by the apostate community as a means to try to show everyone how corrupt the WTS was. Yea, there were a few dissenters here and there, but by and large, the community as a whole was in agreement.
Now, we have a new scandal, but it seems that the support for and against it is almost equally divided. Everyone seemed ready to join the bandwagon to support whatever the "big news" was going to be. There seemed to be a ground swell of activity, as if something special was going to happen and cause a major impact. Instead, there are disagreements on how important the news is and if it will be helpful at all.
What could happen is that the single movement against the WTS is broken in two with different factions fighting different battles. Would that help or hurt the war on the WTS?
