MacHislop posted a quote from a Watchtower on a thread that went something like this:
"….C. T. Russell was patently of that governing body back there in the last quarter of the nineteenth century."Excuse me, but the expression "back there" makes the Governing body sound like a bunch of backwood hicks. From the experience of an undergraduate student, I know for a fact that using such an expression is improper when writing a college paper. Am I in the wrong here, or are there any other expressions used in the Watchower which transcend improper use of the English language?
