    Ran it through Google translate and basically says Morris bashed homosexuals and made no announcement about selling the branch, yet.

    Tons of comments on that blog though, hard to wade through the translated text though.

    Wow. These Italian JWs sound very pissed. I think the organization will have to make serious changes or be toast within a decade. The GB are really digging in their heels and adopting a very hard line stance. It's comforting to see that JWs overseas feel the same way that we do.

    2014 Yearbook saying 1% (actually .8%) increase in Italy. Not much.


    So they're sending Tony Morris over to bolster the spirituality of the Italian "friends"? They better have a terrific "translator"

    who ignores all the stupid stuff he likely to say in a talk......BTXB

    Another one bites the dust...

    I don't know what impact this has in a big country, like Italy, but I do know from my sources that in countries like Central America this was a major blow to the work. I hope that the catholics (with their new found popularity) can use this (not that I like the catholic church, but the enemy of my enemy...)

    Thank you for letting us know.

    Amazing, I wonder what JWs in the US would feel if the Headquarters packed it all up and moved to Canada or Mexico.

    Wow! A couple of months after Morris's visit they get order to shut it down. I am going to assume that the GB is aware of and is not very happy about it to say the least.

    Selling it after Morris' visit reminds me of how Ted Jaracz visted a branch, everyone was so excited, he asked everyone what their responsibilities were, and then after he left many people were dismissed (I believe I read this on a thread on this site). Branch visits are just to trim the fat in disguise and making sure the branch commitee are in agreement with the GB.
