    I have often wondered how the WT gets away with this. Every other "non-profit" or charitable group I know of that takes in donations, has a board, etc must publicly show how they spent their money, how many donations have been given, their assets, etc.

    Even the individual congregations read the accounts each month and post them on the bulletin board. Why doesn't the mother ship have to do this?

    There is a difference between secular non profits and religious non profits per the IRS in the US.

    Ahh.... thank you, Blondie. That makes sense even though I think it is totally wrong. Probably a better question is why the average rank and file does not question why the "org" does not voluntarily provide this information to its members, the ones who float the entire boat?

    I've wondered it for years.....I always thought it should be part of the annual report/WT Study in January

    Darth Fader, are we talking about the same organization that sends one letter to the BOE, and has them edit to the info for the rank and file?

    Yep, same bunch of clowns. I was naive to even ask. :-(

    I've heard that they do file financial statements. It's just that 'it's' invisible to human eyes. One must have eyes of understanding to 'see'. Or not!

    just saying!

    It's like loan sharks...

    ...there's the "public books" and then there's the "private books".

    I asked my Elders the question "Why aren't Jehovah's people open and honest about their financial disclosures"


    Its a very obvious behavior proving they are a secretive false group.

    You should go to the Seventh Day Adventist web site for a example of full disclosure.
