I need help. I have been exchanging emails with my brother who is a JW. I tried to convince him to watch the hearings of the Royal Commission, but he sent me a long list of reasons why he didn't trust "la obra teatral" (theater) and therefore he wouldn't watch anything. He went on a rant of persecution stories in Australia and how various governments would try to impede the preaching work. Lots of crazy stuff. The one that called my attention the most is that JW's were accused in America of being Russian spies, and the rest of the world accused them of being American spies.
Where did that come from? Is that an urban legend made up by a JW or is it from the WT?
