Over ten years ago when the Society changed their format from a contribution basis(pay us for the literature) to a complete donation arrangement, what were you told as to the reason for making this change? Simplification? Easier on the brothers to receive literature? Better way to get the publications into the hands of the householders? Those were the examples I remember which were given to me. Not once did I hear about any Supreme Court decisions affecting other religious organizations and their taxable status, including ours. But yet, the elders knew all along why the change came about. Why did they not let the congregation know too? It wasn't until I "mentally defected" and read *apostate* websites that I finally realized why they changed to a donation arrangement.
What were you told about this?
