Good work Richie!
I'm confused about the announcement of reproof thing. The margin notes say "no announcement of restrictions made" as per KM 11/05. Doesn't that just mean they don't say what the restrictions are? I don't take that to mean they don't announce the reproof itself, but the owner of the book does seem to interpret it that way. Thoughts, anyone??
It says reproof of child molesters is announced though, "to protect". hmmmm I'm glad they're improving their policies, but obviously this falls waaaaay short of providing any sort of protection. If I'm understanding correctly, the only reproofs announced are those of child molesters now......so they are expecting the cong to extrapolate that any reproof announced is a molestation and to take precautions. Yet they never told the cong this new rule, so they are relying on the grapevine to inform the JWs that announced reproofs are only done for molesters. Do I have that right?
This reminds me of the hemophiliac factor BS......they said in the literature factors were not allowed, then privately called hemophiliacs and told them factors were ok......but obviously hemophiliacs were dying because most of them weren't called.
