    Do you donate any of your money to the Watchtower Society?

    Yup, a lot. (Well into 5 figures of cash).

    That does not include TENS OF THOUSANDS of hours of my life, as well as the lives of my family - which was worth far more than money.

    MAGNUM: I can't speak for JeffT, but I know why I'd like to have the info. I did make an investment - virtually my entire life, and I did not receive the promised payout. When one calculates all the costs involved (including affecting my future), he should find that a million dollars doesn't come close to the amount of money I lost in my investment.

    I'd love to know what they do and have done with the money.

    Do you donate any of your money to the Watchtower Society?

    I could retire on what my parents donated.

    I gave fifteen years of my life to this religion and didn't even get a T-shirt.

    "We need to examine, not only what we personally believe, but also what is taught by any religious organization with which we may he associated"

    Do you believe those words? I do. I'm still examining a religion with which I was associated. So far it's been found wanting. If the WTBS is acting honestly there is no good reason for them not to release their financial information.

    I'm an accountant. SOX has nothing to do with the Watchtower, why bring it up?

    I want to know where the money goes and has gone. My wife still donates and as a married couple that is my money too. Plus, I'm nosey and as someone who was raised as a witness with 99% witness relatives - I want to know about the money.
