Why do all of US know about the Branch Organizational Manual, but the Legal Department doesn't, and the Service Desk doesn't?
Why do all of US know how it realllllly is? and they "don't"? Elders do not encourage people to go to the police, elders encourage "silence." "Keeping Jehovah's name clean" "Not bringing reproach on the congregation/ Jehovah's name" People who talk get disfellowshipped. People who testify in a trial get disfellowshipped. Stuart needs examples of these.
I have heard so many people say, so many times, "We can't bring reproach on Jehovah's name!" That is ingrained!
Elders read those Sheperding books like a Bible, they do "not go beyond what is written." It is followed word for word, and all the implications in the WT are in the back of their brain...
Have you ever noticed how many times that Rahab is brought up and studied in the WT and other publications? How she protected the spies by 'lying' about where they were? This is the subtle indoctrination, the repeated praising of such actions to "protect God's organization"... After all, she became one of Christ's ancestors, right? So how bad can 'lying' ("theocratic warfare") be?
