Intransigence has brought down much more powerful organizations than the sickly religious cult, subject of the current thread.
It seems that the people at the top are the VERY LAST to realize that their goose is cooked because they are isolated from the truth of their own organization by the very insular characteristic that is so much a part of cult organization. The leader(s) surround themselves with sychophants who wouldn't dare be the bringer of unhappy news. Thus the leadership continues to believe its own press releases. It just goes with the territory. And the leadership of the WT, not being too bright to start with, is heading down that same primrose path trod by so many other "greats."
Let's take a quick peek at history:
Hitler. Those of his generals who had guts attempted to kill the bastard. The rest just told him what he wanted to hear. I mean the damned Russian tanks had to get as close as the next bus stop before Der Furherer blew out his brains.
Mussolini. That strutting idiot never did get the idea that his goose was cooked until they strung the bastard up by the heels.
Isreal. On their way to a generation of captivity in Babylon before they knew what was going on, even though there were HUNDREDS of people just like the people here warning them that they were doing wrong.
And God knows that Jesus referred to the leaders of Isreal as those who would not listen to prophets and others who were sent to warn it.
AND WHAT MY FRIENDS, ARE WE DOING HERE VIZ. THE WTBTS? Trying to warn the stiffnecked bastards that they have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. But are they listening? Not by the hair on your chinny chin chin. Old Needle Nose Jaracz thinks he's got all the damned answers and since he's convinced that he's more infallible than the damned Pope, his ass is going to be outside the walls of the "city" where his weeping and the gnashing of his teeth can join that of all the others who knew too damned much to be bothered by that uppity carpenter from Nazareth. "...the appropriate time for Jehovah to act..." if that's not arrogance writ large, I'll kiss your ass on any corner you choose and give you two hours to draw a crowd. Sirona, you first.
May it be so soooooooon.
