Successful business man and claims to be a JW.
Anyone know this guy?
Well, aren't they special...
Google has got a WEALTH of info and items re: these two:
5 MILLION TO BREAST CANCER RESEARCH. I mean, WTF?
Upon going through many pages, the hypocrisy has an overwhelming stench to it, as per usual.
Happy trails lurkers.
I found it amusing and perplexing to hear them attribute their philanthropy-consciousness to their Jehovah's Witness faith. The Watchtower organization foments a very distorted view of charity and philanthropy within it's ranks. The Watchtower insists that going door to door and distributing it's periodicles is the most superior way to help mankind.
The fact that this couple gives so much of their money away to help others is truly commendable. But the Watchtower faith does not view charitable, philanthropic organizations as a having any relevance or validity when compared to its own work. Such organizations are part of this "dying old system" of which there is no redeeming qualities; according to the WT. Prominent JWs are merely acting as apologists when they try to persuade the public into believing otherwise.
I wonder if they've been told by elders that their donations really should go to the world wide work...

I wonder if those relatives were JW's, too... lol
I wondered about the trophy wife, he married his ex wifes niece, he was 46 she was 21. I bet this guy tieing himself to the JW's is the elder's nightmare.
There's gotta be someone on this board that's from the area that knows about his JW standing.
Check out his car collection. Unbelievable!
I wonder which one they take out in service.
