EdenOne, I have Rutherford's trashy nonsense in front of me. I'm well familiar with it. Extracts from it are frequently used by me to illustrate systematic lying by jWs and the Watchtower.
As your link was broken, here's a (very poorly) OCR'd one: http://www.archive.org/stream/AGreatBattleInTheEcclesiasticalHeavens/1915_A_Great_Battle_in_the_Ecclesiastical_Heavens_djvu.txt
In no particular order:
I haven't accused Russell of pedophilia with Rose Ball. My Ball-stuff comes later.
Rutherford's brief explanation re 17 year old Galbraith does not fit the facts. Are you aware that Russell abandoned his normal Bethelic duties for MONTHS when trying to ensnare the child (and heiress - this was a double-find for the filthy old lecher)? Hardly merited if the few lines in which Rutherford tries to explain away this scandal was the whole of the story.
Rutherford's used the old lawyer's trick of misdirection. The plot against Galbraith's wealth is debunked and the gullible are distracted; what about her body? What kept the Pastor so busy that in his last several years of life, despite being in acceptable health (which is why his death came as such a shock to the Bethelites), he did almost no preaching at Bethel?
Logic! At 63-4, he wasn't focused on wealth accumulation. He had more than enough.
Rather than disseminate his his vast scriptural knowledge, I suggest he chose to dissemenate.
Look closely at the spellings.
Indeed, Russell's long train journeys afterwards were just possibly motivated by a need to get away from the state, away from the scene of his heinous pastoral crime.
Re young Matthews - what "laundry room"? Here's an extract from the Maria Russell trial, in testimony given under oath:
Q. You state that you found him doing this at other times. How often after that?
A. I found him a number of times; I don't remember how often.
Q. In her room?
A. Yes, sir. And I found him in the servant girl's room as well. and I found him locked in the servant girl's r oom.
Q. Did he make any explanation why he was in the girl's room?
A. No. He did not; he just got angry.
The "servant girl's room" obviously refers to a living and sleeping room, i.e., a bedroom for Emily Matthews, not a laundry room.
You have ignored my own:
It is interesting that though Russell has demonstrated that he was very willing to sue people for libel to shut them up (for example, his failed suit against Rev. Ross), he only tried it once against the Eagle over the cartoon ("Onion Bank and Miracle Wheat").
That's because in the factual articles (i.e., non-cartoons!), the Eagle got it correct and furthermore Russell knew the Eagle could prove that they were correct.
We know this for certain as Russell would surely have sued them if he suspected otherwise.
That further strongly suggests the redoubtable Eagle had even more dirt on Russell, but they were less certain of proving it.
Why? What's faulty about its logic?
In summary - you have fallen for Rutherford's "Great Lies". I'd imagine Da Judge went on to read Mein Kampf, being an admirer of Hitler and a hater of Jews - from Mein Kampf he'd have been happy to see his beliefs confirmed, learning that small lies fail but giant ones usually work. He already knew this.
You are probably a highly truthful person and thus very easy to deceive.
For that, and failing to take into account my "WHY DIDN'T RUSSELL SUE FOR LIBEL, THEN (when he's sued for libel over much more trivial slurs or jokes)" line of reasoning, after duly deliberation by judge, jury and executioner, you are duly hereby awarded a (fairly gentle):
("I'm not mainly addressing the apostate community" Class)
