I would like to issue a challenge to those who seek to discredit JWs concerning the WTS as an NGO with the DPI and the child abuse policy of the WTS. Who can actually present proof not heresay and not he said she said. Let me show you what I mean.
Here we discussed the NGO/UN topic in great detail. Wisely Ozzie locked the thread down as AlanF had been caught in a lie (at least he has not yet offered proof for what he said) and had no where to go. AlanF said:
The fact is that Barry did sign the original application form
But never did he provide proof that this was a fact. I contend that it is an outright falsehood. IN fact the original application, just as the WTS said, did not even require a signature.
And the accreditation form said nothing about supporting the UN:
So here is your chance to show the lurkers the proof for all to see.
Quandry said: I was always taught to read the fine print before I signed anything. The WTS always likes to sound authoritative, well researched, well informed. Yet they quickly signed documents without looking at all the ramifications first? In fact, several higher ups signed? No discussion of how this would look? No investigation into the requirements? Just put their name on documents that had the heading of UN at the top?
It is time for opposers to put up or eat their words. Please provide for us the original application signed by Lloyd Barry of the governing body that AlanF gloated about. Please provide any application that the DPI used where the WTS would have signed that they agreed to support the UN or to even disseminate favorable information about the UN.
Here is an example of what I am talking about: http://www.un.org/esa/coordination/ngo/ Click on forms and documents and then click on application in English. Here you will find an application for NGOs to become associated with the UN/ECOSOC. The WTS was never that type of NGO with the ECOSOC and did not fill out this form.
The first page says:
United Nations Nations Unies
NGO SECTION, DESA
1 UN Plaza, Room DC1-1480, New York, NY 10017
tel: (212) 963-8652 / fax: (212) 963-9248
Application for Consultative Status
with the Economic and Social Council
The last page says:
I/we declare that I/we have answered the questions contained in this form to
the best of my/our knowledge.
I/we declare, that if granted consultative status, my/our organization will act
in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and ECOSOC
The undersigned signature/es is/are duly authorized to sign this declaration.
Name(s) and position(s)
Surely such an application with this sort of agreement must exist for NGOs with the DPI. Show it to us and the proof will be there. Don't come forth with your rhetoric or your false statements or your heresay or your other nonsense.
On the other hand, here is the proof that the WTS did not agree to support the UN and that their expanation written to those who inquired about it was honest and forthcoming.
