Will this be new light?
New light is never released at a convention. They can't control the flow of information that way.
Will they ease up on their shunning?
Could this be it????
There is just too much bad press about them now.
About child abuse cases, yes. No one cares about JW shunning. Well over 99.9% over the world's population doesn't give a rat's patootie if one bunch of members of an insignificant cult decide to shun a bunch of other members (or ex-members) of that same insignificant cult.
It's easy to forget that 99.9% of the world's population don't think anything about Jehovah;s Witnesses for more than 10 seconds a year. They are that irrelevant.
