This religion has a chance of survival
Again,any shift in those who hold power involves men - no change though in their more passive roles for women who comprise well over half of the rank and file.
Steve2 what I didn't understand until I had a child was that women are very motivated by the incredibly strong need to protect their children. So as the Borg keeps creating this bunker mentality in the R+F it target women's protective instincts.
I was terrified of the great tribulation when I was in. Public talks about torture and how many of us would be dragged away to prison until 'it touched Jehovah's eyeball' or something and then he brings the big A.
I can imagine how frightening that is for women with young kids. So must stay faithful to be protected and save their kids, I guess.
