    Looking at the Australian WT Memorandum and Articles of this line took my attention.

    When did they ever undertake works to relieve poverty, some discarded bethelites facing poverty would laugh at this, more like Charitable Works for the Extension of Poverty. But no poverty facing the ultra heavies and GB members replete with obscene displays of the means of telling the time.

    Lol, they create poverty by condemning higher education and encouraging part time work. They don't do anything to help poverty. Are they claiming to? If so, that's a slap in the face.

    Upon entering Bethel and becoming a member of the Worldwide Religious Order of JWs each JW must sign a Vow of Obedience and Poverty.

    There's the "poverty" referred to in the WTBTS Australia's Memorandum and Articles of Association.
