So, the people you mention will fare better than others because they have material assets to fall back on. And, you say, they're happy to get the hell out!! Now, all they need is a job and something tells me that people this prepared are more likely to find employment than others!
Hopefully, brothers with businesses will help the other people laid off.....But, the thought occurred to me that some brothers with businesses might not be happy about the idea....Imagine that!
Once the full scope of this unfortunate situation becomes known (and felt) by local congregations, the rank & file Witnesses won't be believing the positive B.S. spin the religion is putting on this. And I don't believe it's all over yet...the religion may let more people go somewhere down the line.
There is an expression: "Don't piss on people's backs and tell them it is raining."
