And some of us have said we don't care about the group itself one way or the other, or necessarily think the idea behind it is an awful idea...but we are disheartened by the arrogance and refusal to "make it right"...I only care about them rectifying the privacy issue and removing all of those they have inconvenienced or put at risk who did not consent to membership to their group, and sticking with laws and ethics in the future.
Hello fizzywiglet, I think you are being unreasonable and hyperbolic. You are correct that creating a non profit organization is a heavy responsibilty, one that the Watchtower so expertly averts at the cost of countless lives of the innocent, namely children. The Watchtower operates under the pseudonym "faithful and discreet slave class". As a "theological arrangement" they are immune to any action against them personally. Steven Unthank had to craft from scratch a religious manifesto in order to even have a chance. People don't mess with religion because you are fighting a shadow. What you accuse AAWA of the Watchtower employs in spades. Focus on the culprit, not the resistance to it.
The way in which the world works is fixed. What's spoiled by man's err is made good again by man's work. What do you think was going through the minds of the people who set up public drinking fountains for specific ethnicities? What about the person driving the bus where Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back? What exactly IS IT that changes the canvas of life where people stop and really look at what they are doing and then change? The answer is activism which is always aggressively persued. You bring up ethics like you invented them. AAWA was founded with ethics in mind. They are Rosa Parks. When some choose to stand up, they are ALWAYS met with opposition. It's simply the way it works. You can choose to be part of the problem, or the solution to it. Up to you.
