Question : Explain to the board in detail why you think Cedars is paranoid
as to the things he point out in the pics______wasblind
1 The picture is about the earthly part of the organisation. Nothing to do with the heavenly part. Do many of you really think that Jesus is about to be booted out, because he is not in the picture?
Yes, if it didn't include the heavens, why put it in the pic , if it didn't have a specific meanin'
2 The comfy chairs. As I have already stated chair quality changes wherever you live in the world. I already said in Denmark they had a 3 piece suite in the library, while we in UK had hard uncomfortable chairs. It did not mean they were any better than us did it? If the gov body had been shown sitting on old hard chairs, the immediate response would be, 'no way do they sit on old chairs'
This is an American made religion, that mess came straight out of brooklyn . Those are brooklyn chairs
3 Sitting on part of Africa. The yearly report spells out exactly what is happening in the world. They don't need subtle pictures to add to that report.
I wouldn't bet on it, How many reports have you faked in fieldservice, I did a couple myself, and the book study conductor excepted it wit' no question
4 Cedars I know you are not looking for supporters, I was trying to tell you that you usually write well written blogs. They are very interesting and informative. It’s just that this time I do not share your view.
That's all good, this ain't the Kingdom Hall , ain't nothin wrong in havin' a different point of view, but when you claim a person is paranoid, prove it
5 The hierarchical nature of the religion. As I have already stated, this picture is nothing new. It has been the same for decades. Publishers bow down to elders, elders bow down to circuit overseers. (By the way there is no district overseer there, do you think he has been done away with. And yet the circuit overseer has to bow to him.) To continue, circuit overseers bow down to branch elders and the branch bows down to governing body. That is how it was and that is how it is. Nothing has changed. No need for subtle pictures to add to that report.
As for the DO, give it time the WTS make changes everyday. I'm sure you can name some things that have beeen done away wit' lately
6 jwfacts mentions the fact that there are no women leaders. This is true, and a good point to make, but again it is nothing new. JW women all know their position in the org. They agree to it at their baptism. That is the structure the org has. If women don’t like it, they are free to not join up. Of course that is a terrible way to be going on in the 21 st century, but that is how this organisation works. All witnesses know that, they know about the steps from the governing body to the publisher.
Yes, it's a good thing we can point that out for all the world to see
If all of this was shown to someone studying, then yes it is very useful imfo. But the converted already know and accept this. The society are purely pushing the point home, just like they do in every article they have ever written.
Usin' carefully crafted pictures that have a meanin' in every little detail
