Looking at the stats, there are well over 14,000 views of the thread about the UN. The next 'most read' thread is around 9,500 so it is clearly a burning issue.
I wonder if the involvement with the UN is the biggest threat to the WTS?
They are getting badly burnt because of their covering up child abuse and www.silentlambs.org is doing a great job of raising the profile of this but even so, I can see the 'mental defense mechanism' of many JWs excusing this as 'individuals imperfection'.
They cannot excuse the GB getting in bed with the UN. This makes the GB a harlot and THEY KNOW IT.
There can be no excuses. This is the leadership that has transgressed BIG TIME.
I personally will be scanning the article in the Guardian and making sure everyone I know reads it. I intend to stand outside the KH with copies and make sure everyone is aware of it. I'll post a copy here if anyone wants to use it - a *real newspaper reprint* is more effective than a printout from a web site.
Incidentally, the article underneath on the same page raises questions about the validity of tax breaks for religious organisations that do not contribut anything to society... hmm, who would fit that description?
The attack on Brooklynistan intensifies...
