Terry: Notice how this UNTRUTH is presented:
..........Moyle quit, and left Brother Rutherford holding the bag.
Lol! You had to bring up Olin, didntya, Terry? How could you not when speaking of Rutherford and Covington?
Sure..."Moyle quit". Sure, if you buy the fairy tales that spew forth from the WTS.
But, for an better look at Moyle's role back in the 30s and 40s, here is a link to
the transcripts of the Olin R. Moyle Trial that was concluded in 1943.
Olin R. Moyle v. Fred Franz et al (1943). Complete transcript of this landmark trial and includes background. Moyle sued the leaders of Jehovah's Witnesses (Watchtower Bible and Tract Society) for libel and was awarded damages. Includes testimony from several notable Watchtower leaders.
And another link to the WTS' attack on Olin Moyle:
1941 Watchtower Convention Condemns Olin R. Moyle. Scan of the resolution adopted by the Assembly of Jehovah's Witnesses in St Louis, Missouri condemning Olin R. Moyle. In 1939, Moyle resigned as legal counsel for Jehovah's Witnesses in a letter criticizing "Judge" J.F. Rutherford, second president of Jehovah's Witnesses. Rutherford published statements against Moyle which were held to be libelous in US Courts and Moyle was awarded $15,000 in damages. The Convention resolution against Moyle was mentioned in a 1941 Watchtower magazine issue (which is also included in this file).The St. Louis Assembly held in the summer of 1941 was one of the "Children of The King" assemblies. The one where the WTS had 15,000 children registered, 1,300 children baptized and all 15,000 pledge allegiance to the Watchtower Society. Those were the children that Covington used to challenge the US pledge of allegiance and it was their refusal to salute the flag or pledge allegiance that the 1943 Barnette Scotus ruling emerged from. Right smack dab in the middle of WW2.
The "Children of the King" assemblies were the last speaking tour that the Judge made - he died in January of 1942.
