I was an elder when the affair was disclosed.
I talked with some elders and this is waht happened:
1. The first on was surprise and shoked, he agree with me, but decided to keep silence because of his family.
2. The second one knew about the topic because was asked by one publisher before, but was also shoked and belived that in some way was a fullfilment of Mat 24:15. He didn't aggre with the conduct of the WT, but decided to wait in Jehovah.
3. The third one only hear me, he also knew about the topic because was asked before by the same publisher. He didn'y reply anything, but I feel that in some way agree with me, but didn't had the courage to take an action or make more research.
I talked with two other elders then, the ones that at last were used as the two witness rule to DA me. An elder member of the Service Desk of my country and a CO, they mantained the position of the WT, but didn't have any answers to my questions, only loyalty to the WT.
The letter from the WT was not of public knowledge of the elders, it was only used by the Branches when a publisher asked about.
