The last talk o the saturday convention of JW was already often the centre of discussion, with all the name calling, logical fallacies and fear mongering. However, it was interesting, not just what and how Splane adressed the matter, also what he actually had to admit.
1) He had to admit, that the org is actually loosing court battles, left and right. he blamed the socalled unjust systems of wordly courts, but if one have in mind, that JW always boasted about winning court trials as proof of Gods backing, particularly in the 40`s about religious freedom, this is actually a concession of defeat. Winning in court = Gods backing, loosing therefore equals also loosing God`s backing. He didnt draw this conclusion directly, but it is inevitable.
2) He had to admit, that JW settling cases out of court. And more importantly, that a reason for this is, that BOTH parties do not want all the truth to be revealed. So he said, WT is hiding something.
3) He had to admit, that news reporters to try to get their side by contacting the branch. Of course, he put his drivel on it, why this is also bias, but still.
4) He had to admit, that News reporters are carefully wording things to not get sued, so basically he cnfessed, that whenever something false is being broadcasted, they will sue them. This in away confirms, that what the media shows, may be negative and onesided, but not entirely false.
