There are over 8 million JDubs and I would venture a guess that at least 20% to 30% are PIMO. In my opinion, the Kingdom Hauls are only half full for two reasons....many have left but the majority are PIMO and any little excuse will keep them home and they will report their token ghost hours in service. All it takes to stay home is being tired, too much school homework or I will go next week, No doubt many have taken part-time jobs and the fear of working the second shift and the guilt of missing meetings is gone. This would explain why the overall numbers in the total JW count do not reflect the sharp decline indicated in the number of halls being combined.
Then we have the disfellowshipped, and the majority of which stay that way but many do return not because of their love of the desert god but because of wanting to be with family. These reinstated ones will also be PIMO's.
The 8 Popes at Warwick know that PIMO's create a problem for them and how much better it would be if they weren't around because of the example they set and it can discourage the faithful to not be so faithful.
Somehow the Popes need to get rid of them. They are going to do something that is over the top that only the JW's that become unconscious when they enter the Kingdom Hauls will fully buy into. The Watchtower has stated several times in so many words "you are going to hear some crazy stupid shit coming from the Popes that seems bizarre, but your faithful obedience to this stupid shit will save your lives at the fast approaching Great Tribulation."
I think that they may even make it much more difficult for the disfellowshipped to be reinstated since they will become more PIMO's.
I was trying to think what would be some things the Gibbering Booty may demand to put things over the top? Something that I thought of is making tithing mandatory or setting minimum hours in service to 30 to 40 hours a month for everyone, How about having several meetings a month in some bunker as trial runs for the future. Maybe showing proof that ones final will have the Watchtower Company as the sole beneficiary for everything?
What do you think? Am I out in left field with the above?
