I'm watching John Cedars rebuttal of the Annual Meeting, and right at the start Stephen Lett starts going on and on about spiritual food, how nutritious it is, how filling it is, it comes across as weird but it doesn't help admittedly that the guy looks like Bozo the Clown forgot his act. But the thought just came to me as I'm eating dinner.
Not everybody gets dinner. Not everybody gets three meals a day. Not everybody can buy good food. Not everybody can buy food, whether any food or enough food. And while I get that he's making these remarks to people in Warwick I think, or is it New York City... wherever it is the people the organization invites aren't struggling to survive in a refugee camp... but these videos go up on www.jw.org, and people watch them internationally. A lot of these people will watch it from the global South, places where Jehovah's Witnesses continue to grow, the Caribbean, southeast Asia, Latin America, places like that where people struggle to buy enough food to stay alive because they make so little everyday. Many don't even have clean drinking water, and they often live in shacks or shanty towns.
It's in really poor taste to go on and on about how delicious your magazine is when some of the people listening to your speech won't even eat that night.
