    Are these perhaps shrewdly thought out strategies executed under a clever veneer of naivety? If so, we might sit back one day and marvel at the sheer tactical audacity of the play.

    Forgive the bad analogy from a non-gambler, but maybe it's a bit like watching a possibly angry poker player seemingly risk everything (including the children) on a single hand against a cold, calculating and practiced opponent - it brings out the worrier in sensible watchers who know either or both players might have Straight or even Royal Flushes, but suspect there might be some bluff involved and aren't quite sure what the deal is on Wildcards...

    Yours hopefully from Max, an admitted Worry Wart

    I was just going through some of Bill Bowen's Threads from last year, and I found an extremely interesting Thread I think you will all want to see:

    This Thread was started by Bill on April 25th 2001.

    Notice what Bill says:

    1. Ted Jaracz
    2. Daniel Sydlik
    3. Fred Franz
    4. Ewart Chitty
    5. Leo Greenlees

    These men all have something in common, can you guess what it is?

    Interesting, eh?

    Ask Bill Bowen! He's got all sorts of info on this I'm sure.

    Good idea, everyone who wants to know should E-Mail Bill.

    Leave him alone.

    Please do not be assuming those "5" are "the 5" that the ladies are now accusing of pedophilia!

    In fact, regarding Chitty, after his homosexuality became widely known he was quietly transferred from the Gov Body. There was no mention of his being a pedophile, although that might or might not be.

    Greenlees, yes, he was also quietly transferred undisfellowshipped after it became widely known he was a pedophile - and he is now deceased.

    Nor is it known if Sydlik ever molested a child, although it is heard that his wife had some manner of dalliance or affair with another man working the desk at Bethelite who was later transferred away.

    Ted Jarasc has now definitely been alleged a child molestor by Pat Garza who stated before the press that this occurred about 40 years ago when Jarasc was a district overseer in Los Angeles.

    As to Fred Franz, who is among the 5 mentioned on the other thread, he was noted, some have said, as being "odd" or "queer" in his actions in that sometimes, although mentally seeming sharp, he walked around Bethel in pyjamas and the like.

    Did all those know of and abet the policy of covering up pedophilia and or other things that might cast Watchtower in a less than positive light? It definitely appears to be so, and therefore the Governing Body members now need to offer a rebuttal at the Judicial Committee hearing in Kentucky to which they have been invited to appear, or there are grounds such that people will assume the charges stand and the rank-and-file as well as media will be informed of this too and all the more so.

    Again, your assumption that those 5 are the same Bill is now mentioning since the Pat Garza revelation is just that, an assumption. Time and the ladies who were molested will tell the rest of the story.

    Bill's whole reputation does not hinge on whatever you think it hinges on, just because you think it hinges on what you think it hinges on.

    I just want to say that I support Bill, and this is the third thread I am posting this on, I know. I just want to put my 2 cents in.(i guess this makes 6 cents?)

    I have never seen a regular guy do so much for so many people. He is a real hero.

    Thus far, I have not been let down yet by any of his actions. All news reports have been wonderful and truthful. In fact, I have never seen news coverage that showed the reality of the Org like these programs have. Great job, Bill!

    It seems that this letter is too amazing to believe, too outrageous to be true (the 5 GB members thing.) Well, we shall see. I will give this man the benefit of the doubt on this one while I watch this play out because he has not let me down so far.

    Oh, and everyone, even Bill, knows the GB isn't going to listen to these letters! I think we would all fall over dead with shock if any GB member even responed! There is another reason for these letters, obviously.

    Thanks for all your hard work Bill,

    If you are talking about mental molestation, then anyone who has been a GB member is guilty. Millions of JW children have been mind fucked.

    Sorry folks, this is the same kind of stuff we heard about the 10 elders molesting some girl in a motel room in Montana. Bill needs to knock this stuff of because it makes him look like a lunatic. If he's not prepared to name names and post details then he needs to drop the sensationalized announcements. This is garbage.
