For quite a while now, the Watchtower has been reacting to
severe controversies with ambiguous replies.
This is a dramatic change from the decades when they plainly
expressed their views on neutrality, the U.N., and blood.
It was felt that to do otherwise violated the sacred responsibility
of a prophet of Jehovah - if something was wrong or a tool of the
Devil, they said so. Some quoted from Titus "Concerning these
things make firm assertions constantly.."
Well, no more - what does this new habit of ambiguity signify?
If you want to know, have your wife or girlfriend ask you
"Honey, do you love me?"
If your reply is anything but an emphatic YES - if you hesitate
and give a qualified answer - you will transmit the message
that SOMETHING IS WRONG.
The Watchtower leaders could, even now, say loudly and publically,
"WE DO NOT SUPPORT THE UNITED NATIONS ORGANIZATION!"
They could say,
"DO NOT VOTE!"
"DO NOT TAKE ANY BLOOD OR FRACTIONS!"
But they aren't going to disavow a course of action that
may earn them tax benefits, or legal privledges.
They will continue to 'bend the truth', to hide behind self-
invented meanings of common words,and cower when caught lying.
They will do this because, unlike the wife or girlfriend you
love, they have come to love the whoring they condemned others for
doing - and that isn't too strong a word, here, when you combine
pretense, false affections, and payment for hire, willingly and
freely entered into. If you think my opinion here is too ugly,
you need to review what kind of illustrations prophets like
Ezekiel used to describe a corrupt organization that claimed
to be Jehovah's people in his own time. ("hung like horses",
