Rutherfood sounds like a very hard man but Russell intrigues me and I should do some more research on his works, even though he had his dates all wrong he comes across as being sincere in his efforts.
You have to read the transcript of the Russell divorce to fully understand how "sincere in his efforts" he was. It is true Rutherford looks worse because of being a boozing, womanizing, greedy tyrant - but Russell was a delusionary nut case who was not above plaigerism and backstabbing to maintain his ultimate power and control. He was the one who irrevocably started the long series of false prophecy and failed date predictions.
There was really nothing positive or ethical about either one of them.
