    But it is good to pretend to be...

    Farkel, you almost redeemed yourself on this thread. People contributed to this fine thread.

    Sounds like a bunch of lovely people - and it makes sense.

    Anger towards themselves projected on the flock.

    It DOES make sense, when Farkel puts it in "Just the facts, ma'am..." type.

    But, I don't remember reading any of that info in the Proclaimer's book......

    No you won't read any of that in any WTS literature published in the last 70 years.

    If you look at some of the early editions of The Watchtower there was a lot of complaining going on about what was happening at Bethel. They didn't hide things the way they do now.

    As a JW I heard the rumors that said Russell sexually abused a child. I, like most JWs I knew, ignored it as the rantings of apostates. It wasn't until I got here and watched the truth about Russell unfold that I learned that Rose Ball was not a child and while he may not have had intercourse with her he sure flirted around with it. Of course no one will ever know just how close they came and what those kisses were really like. But it hugging and kisses any woman who was not not your wife would be considered taboo. Maria. who was deprived of her husband's attentions must have felt so betrayed.

    Well, you might argue with the exact use of the term "Sexual Deviants". You might - I would agree with it.

    However the term, it is abundantly clear that all four of these guys were pretty odd ducks out of water on this subject.

    And to think that they took it upon themselves to literally tell hundreds of thousands (millions in later years) of normal married people what and what not to do is disturbing to say the least. But it may go to explain a lot of how these bizarre teachings got started. In particular, the Knorr genital phobia and fetishism is crazy express train on crazy track nine.

    Sort of like Ted Kennedy giving teenagers lessons on driving safety.

    if there was contest out of the 4 Knorr would win hands down, closely followed by " sauna frequenting weirdo " Fred Franz.
