Letter Read Out at KH
I don't know if this letter has been discussed or published here - apologies if it has.
This is not verbatim, but it basically said that even if J.W.'s couldn't offer any physical support for the wonderful provision of the new Britain Branch (which the G.B. had allowed to go ahead) everyone could contribute financially to the project. To facilitate such donations, a new contribution box would be installed at the back of the KH, and all the money received would also be used to finance other projects around the world. So much for the existing box which is allegedly for everything org-related - Worldwide Work donations. Also, this new Branch construction demonstrated the great expansion taking place in the organization.
Double-speak again from the org, and not one word about the new Branch being self-financed by the sales of all the lucrative London properties. The fleecing of the sheep continues at full speed.
Unbelievable, not long back when they filched all KH funds they DROPPED all extra boxes at back of hall, that did not last long!
Didn't the religious leaders in Jesus time create a multitude of contribution boxes too?
So when there is a natural disaster, they don't want funds dedicated to help people in need , but now to build their Mecca, they are designating a separate box. Buildings are more important than people. Ipocrites!!
Thanks Searcher for the update
I will donate nothing. If I have anything to donate toward the Worldwide Damnation Fund, I can simply use those funds to buy and keep silver bullion instead. They don't deserve any of it.
I would love to see the Witnessess occasionally making some
sandwiches and giving
them to the hungry,
Nah too complicated,
And they're not brothers anyway,
I have to paraphrase, but doesn't the scripture say "do good toward
All and especially toward those related to us in the faith" WHAT
HAPPENED TO "ALL"?
ignoring what the scripture saiys is a little self serving no?
The fleecing of the sheep continues at full speed.
Well said The Searcher
Yes, this week we had that letter read also. The new contribution was in place ready.
They also read out the Accounts Report, we sent just under £200 last month to the Society. I remember when that used to be over £1,000 every month. Some people must be waking up to this begging scam.
