The WT uses any OT example they can to force their agenda of NO APOSTACY and TOW the PARTY LINE! And we all know that the OT is immoral and does nothing to elevate our enlightened society. It sounds like the Kingdom Halls are becoming the equal of some of the mosques in The Netherlands which were denounced by one politician as palaces of hate. In this case: not halls of fame but halls of hate.
On the side of the article is a column about Jehu's historicity. Funny though. Using the same source they say: see A Jehu is mentioned although he is portrayed as a son of Omri which flies in the face of the biblical account. BUT, again using the same source, they discount the fact that Jehu paid tribute to Assyria. Which would be logical given the brutal rep the assyrians had and would align with the Jehu story. He was simply brown nosing the Assyrian King by showing off in a slaughter. A sort of Return to Wolfenstein avant la lettre.
The latter part of the Jehu article recounts the fact that although Jehu did some things ok, he left the Golden Calf in tact. It is mentioned he had his own reasons to not fully seek "Anschluß" with the Southern Kingdom. Although the bible writer had rather seen a different scenario, he went down in history of one of the good guys.This situation of Golden Calf = Jehovah worship + sacrifice on the highplaces = Jehovah worship can be seen throuhout the pre babylonian OT.
So, lesson may be: you can be harsh on one point and lenient on another and yet be a good guy. As long as you are not in full rivalry with the WBTS and sing their praise, you get a break. You should be rounding up and extradite all who are not praising the WBTS. Note that Jehu used a litmus test. Perhaps, the WBTS will soon be directing elders on this matter, to use a litmus test. The mechanics are in place to start a new witchhunt.
But in the historical context the GB/FDS gladly compares itself with Jehu and Jonadabs with the great crowd. It would give them an excuse to praise their Golden Calf WBTS although technically it would represent apostasy on their part. But he, Jehu was one of the good guys, right?
