As to these denials, what else is new?
I recall when the Society split up into nine or so corporations, official denials - that the Society was reacting to potential lawsuits -
were made. I knew better from a Bethelite ( who lamented that they didn't want a half senile GB member on the witness stand)
and a District Overseer, who let it slip in a talk.
Has anyone reasoned that this matter is a huge "unkept" secret in the organization, that no one wants to admit?
here it is: they are running out of money because the friends aren't contributing the way they used to!
