Why not just pull the bunched-up panties out of your butts and live and let live, for pity's sake?
"Live and let live."
Let me make this perfectly clear: There is no sweat off my back if the AAWA is sued and Richard Kelly is discovered to have comitted fraud. I don't know the guy.
However, to ask us to not speak up and give them these warning would be asking us to do an unethical thing.
We are giving them valid, critical feedback they need to hear. They don't want to hear it - but they need to.
They are the ones getting things seriously wrong.
They are the ones that outed people on Facebook - that's like the worst thing you can do to a fading JW - they randomly invited thousands of people on both sides of the fence into a "secret" group. Not so "secret".
They are the ones who committed fraud with their legal documents. You know that line on legal documents - "I the undersigned solemnly swear under penalty of perjury that the information I have provided is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge" etc.? Are we to assume that the Richard Kelly really believed there was a man living at his address by the name of John Cedars? How could he sign those documents knowing they weren't true?
We are asking them to take a few minutes to be honest and responsible, fix the messes the made, and get their legal ducks in a row. If they don't, they are quickly going to lose credibility and possibly face criminal charges.
So don't attack us. Thank us. We are being nice here. We're not filling out forms with the ACC to report corporate/non-profit fraud. We are bringing it to the public attention so that the AAWA has to act on it and make things right.
Remember: The AACA is not a person. It's not a friend you know, although friends you know may be behind it's "corporate veil". It is a legal entity, and it is just now establishing it's credibility as a legal entity. It is required that the org and it's officers behave within strict laws established for these kinds of legal entities.
