Fred Franz and J.F.Rutherford were an amazing dynamic duo.
Franz, of course, was the more educated of the two.
But, Rutherford was prolific as a writer.
If we take a backward look through time at Franz and his influence on Jehovah's Witness theology we can see how hardcore was his crackpot instinct.
Franz was untouchable, too.
If he stated it--whatever "it" was, it was unimpeachable. Especially when he was dead wrong.
It was really this resident sage, guru, psychic channeler of Jehovah who SET THE TONE for all Governing Body hard-hearted policies.
The unwillingness to reason, consider, change or apologize originates with Franz and his example.
He was not far removed from being a Jim Jones if you stop and think about it.
The destruction of reputation to Jehovah as a brand reached a peak between 1968 and 1975 with the amazing bogus buildup to THE END OF SIX THOUSAND YEARS OF HUMAN EXISTENCE and the thinly veiled Armageddon prediction.
Consider this: After completely destroying credibility for the Watchtower, Jehovah and all his door-to-door prophets of doom----HE WAS REWARDED by being made the President!!
What does this tell you about honesty, intellectual probity or a love for truth?
No, the Blood policy is but a symptom of a greater disease among the Governing Body. Cold Hearted insanity rules.
