Thank you, you have a better ear for that line than I had when I first listened to the interview. :) Of course, this wasn't a professional transcript and I did the best I could do with the limited audio.
You are more than welcome. I understand that you transcribed it in no time flat from reading LDH's thread last night.
My concern is that it is the same transcription is posted on the silentlambs site. The link to it is in the 2nd post of this thread. You can see by "Onthewayout"'s post (also in this thread) that it seems to have impacted his/her thinking about what Brown actually said.
Not only did Brown answer in the negative to Lisa's question about being inspired.. but he clearly answered her separately and distinctly to the spirit- "directed" question, saying "No, we don't have anybody that makes that claim". I think that is invaluable since Jws have been (since 85) and still are, baptized into the "spirit-directed organization."
Why am I making what may seem like a fuss..? Well, because Jws play so many word games that they could, and would, make excuses about what was said if they read the interview as it is transcribed now. I post to Jws on another discussion board and I would link them to it and ask them to read it, but as it stands now..I wouldn't. They'd twist it easily.. As a matter of fact, we just wound up a thread about Jws being baptized into the "spirit-directed org". A proper transcription would really cause them to have to give some answers. Or at the least perhaps to.. get them to think..
I'd also like to give it to family to read.. (if they would) I am mostly shunned but I think I can get it into their hands
If you want to contact B. Bowen that would be great because it seems that he used your transcription. If it's no big deal to you.. I'll do it, but I think it would have more validity coming from you since you transcribed it in the first place. He's a busy man and probably didn't ever actually listen to the audio.
Sorry to be a bother, Leolaia.. but I hope you can see my point. Having only heard the tape in full yesterday, I was really floored by it. I know that with time the WT lies become cliche with the passage of time, but imho this has potential to make quite an impact on someone who "loves truth".
