The Watchtower is FRAUD for GOD
FRAUD: Class-Action Lawsuit Agains the WTBTS
True liberty includes the freedom to do very stupid things.
The 1st Amendment shields the WT almost 100% on religious issues.
The fraud involved in the Menlo Park Cong takeover is what may have legitmate legal status.
BAND -- What's your take on that one?
I've only read a portion of the posts so I don't know. Filing a claim is easy. The first big test is surviving a motion to dismiss for failure to state claim. One major problem is that they know they will be sued in the course of business and plan for the event. Joe JW, being baptized and full of bliss, cannot conceive of ever not loving them so Joe does not prepare. Today I read my Verizon contract in detail. They stretched and stretched watching out for their interests. I had no legal team negotiating with them. It is sad and comical at the same time.
How many people sign prenupitals? Negotiating with my religion and God seems much stranger than a prenupital. The Witnesses contort the law to their advantage. Yet they jaw away at worldly people such as lawyers. So lawyers are evil except in one case and one case only: the greater glory of the WT org. They act like a multinational corporation with legal interests to pursue.
I am pressed for time but I will try to read the Menlo Park material.
Here are some upcoming lawsuits in Australia and Belgium against the WTBTS:
A hearing is scheduled in the lawsuit of Mr Steven Unthank vs Christian Congregation Of Jehovah's Witnesses (WBTS) in the Latrobe Valley Magistrates' Court of Victoria in Gippsland, Australia on 13 Sept 2011 at 09:30 AM (https://dailylists.magistratesvic.com.au/browse-court-lists/court-itinery-list.aspx?id=97&type=Criminal&date=13/09/2011) that alleges the WTBTS violated Victoria’s child protection laws (http://jwnewsnetwork.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/press-release/). Jacques Lejeune alleges that the "Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses" violated his human rights and will be heard in a Mons court (in Belgium) on October 18, 2011. For more information about Jacques Lejeune’s lawsuit click on the following link (translated by Google): http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.testimoni-di-geova.info%2Fspip.php%3Frubrique103.
If you want to hear more about the outcomes of the hearings, you should write news organizations to cover the aforementioned hearings like I did.
Also, I wrote to USA representatives and will be writing to senators asking them to change the USA tax codes to force dangerous cults to either change or lose their tax exempt status. I wrote about what I did today in the thread http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/members/politics/215126/1/Ive-Been-Sooo-Bad-Hopefully-Something-Good-will-Happen. USA exJWs can also write their representatives like I did. ExJWs from other countries can also research their countries tax laws and write to their representatives.
If you want to change the WTBTS, "Follow the money and stop it flowing!" to paraphrase Deep Throat in All the Presidents Men. If Nixon was toppled by shedding light on the activities that he authorized, then the WTBTS can also be toppled or changed. All it takes is a little work by a lot of people.
Peace be with you and everyone, who you love,
