I think the WTS is running scared when it comes to LGBT issues. It sees the rising tide of acceptance as a direct attack against its "base." And now, to its horror, the United States stands on the brink of ending centuries of discrimination and finally sanctioning not only same-sex marriage but ending discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace.
I no longer doubt the presence of gay men in the upper echelons of the WTS and even the Governing Body itself. There has been an underground gay community at Brooklyn and Wallkill for decades. Likely there is one at Patterson as well and when the headquarters transfers to Warwicki, New York, the gay cells will go with it. The deep homophobia the WTS exhibits tells me that many of its leaders are gay themselves and are very insecure men. Perhaps they think that since they haven't been able to "pray the gay away" in their own lives, strident denunciation will do the trick. But if that is their belief, they are going to find that won't work either. What will they do then?
