Following is the response of a JW to the information regarding the UN/NGO status of the WatchTower Society. It seems not all will see with clarity the hypocritical position of the organisation in this matter:
It is not the asking questions that is the problem. You are twisting the facts.
Yes, the Society is registered with the UN. It does not make them a supporter of the UN, it is a requirement that they register so they can be protected by the human rights umbrella of the UN. Without the UN acknowledging the Society, they can accomplish very little and have little protection from world powers who seek to crush the Society. For example, with witnesses being persecuted throughout the world, by being registered with the UN, the Society can appeal to the UN to use their 'status' to protect the witnesses human rights. This is a fundamental right under the UN's human rights legislation.
Just as the Society is registered as legal corporations in lands throughout the world. Your argument would have it that by taking this action, we support the governments in these countries. The real truth is that we must be registered by law. Just as we must pay taxes by law, obey the law of the land, when it does not contravene Gods own laws. By being registered, the government acknowledges we exist.
You know all this Andrew, and I am not telling you anything new. Like all apostates, you twist the real truth.
In my view, you are obviously not serious about wanting help. I suggest if the Elders did not want to help, that your actions or attitude spoke volumes as to your real motivation.
If you put the same amount of research into finding the answers as you have put in to finding these 'flaws', you would not need to seek anyone's 'help' as you put it. I think you are misguided, not confused.
The tone of your first email was not to seek help, it was to cause doubt. Apostates are the same everywhere Andrew, there is nothing new in your actions that is not evident with just about every other apostate I have known.
As to writing to me and suggesting that you are doing me a favour, please, don't bother doing it again.
All the information you presented is not new. Put in it's real light though, there is nothing wrong with the Society being registered as a NGO, based on the facts.
Just as we do not vote, there is nothing stopping us going to our local MP and asking assistance for a problem we may have in the community. By acknowledging they are elected members of government, does not mean we are part of their politics.
I will not reply to any more emails. It is not for me to help you in this situation. Ring the elders and ask them for help. As long as you are genuine and want to get back to the truth, they will help I am sure.
Please do not write again, unless you are reinstated.
