Paying for literature at the counter, wasn't a wise move by the society, they should have stayed with the paymenty for literature and payed their fair share of taxes and they would have been further ahead. As far as donating, there were several parts covering the fact that the congregation wasn't "donating" enough for the literature that was free. Makes one wonder what they are going to do now that all one has to do is pick up literature at the counter if they need x amount. I'm sure once the $$$ comes up short again, that there will be more parts of donating for the "free" literature.
It's all a $$$ scam and thats all it ever has been since Rutherford's day.
