Nice to meet you Steve and thankyou for taking an interest in this, a lot of us used to have familys (pre shunning) and it seems totally bizarre that this Publishing company can get credit as a human rights campaigner when it blatently walks over others rights like pebbles on a beach. nelly
when people come round collecting for religious donations I can say '10 out of 15 of my family members dont talk to me for the sake of religion...guess ive already donated'
Your response and the Gillies letter is exactly where is should be (posted on this db). Everyone on this board can offer you all sorts of amo to go after this guy when he wrongly "attacks" your outstanding work through our boss.
I just Eamiled you with some more information you may find interesting.
p.s. - I wasn't too sure if you wanted/didn't want it posted at first seeing you didn't tell me. But I realized Gillies gave this to your editor for public consumption and I am not letting him go after you!! I apologize if I accelerated ahead of your pace for posting.
Apologies folks - just been told by the Tablet that my piece is not going in this week (the IRA'S decision to disarm prompted an article by John Hume, the Catholic Irish Nobel prize winner, which caused mine to be dropped at a late moment after it was already in type). I had this problem with getting my stuff promptly in the Guardian too. Hopefully the article will go in the Tablet next week - they liked the article but RCs outweigh JWs I am afraid in a Catholic newspaper...
Especially in view of Gillies' ludicrous contention that JW involvement amounted to its receipt of a library card, any corroboration that JW missionaries or officials were flown around for free on UN aircraft would be especially damaging. I raised this issue in another thread on this subject, but nobody seems to have picked up on it.
This story must stay alive and well. Don't let it die. Seems the "control" of this story is slowly becoming out of your hands and into the hands of others. SEEMS! Work hard please to prevent this from happening.
"I have found this most illuminating!"
Very interesting statement. Just so happens...so do I sir, so do I.
