    Regarding: Video equipment in Kingdom Halls

    Dear brothers:

    We are pleased to write you concerning the installation of video equipment in Kingdom Halls.

    As you know, for approximately one year we have been working to have the majority of Kingdom Halls get two TV monitors and, in some cases, only one, depending on the size of the hall. We are sure that all appreciate this provision allowing us to enjoy the audio/video programming Jehovah’s Organization is using today.

    The cost of the installation of all this video equipment is defrayed thanks to the donations of the worldwide brotherhood to the program Worldwide Construction of Kingdom Halls and Assembly Halls. However, in view of the urgent need to accelerate the construction of worthy places of worship locally and worldwide, the Governing Body has asked for your kind cooperation to reimburse the organization for the cost of this equipment. (2 Corinthians 9:7) The suggested contribution is 6.50 euros per publisher.

    We know you are going to great lengths to generously support the worldwide work and the construction of Kingdom Halls and Assembly Halls. You deserve commendation for the spirit you show. You can be sure that the Governing Body appreciates the additional effort you will put forth to reimburse the cost of the video equipment. This will allow “by means of an equalizing, your surplus at the present time might offset [the need of others]”, and continue the construction of theocratic facilities where needed. (2 Corinthians 8:14). Thank you very much for your generosity.

    We pray that Jehovah continues to bless your hard work and unconditional support of Kingdom Interests. (Proverbs 10:22). Be assured of our warm Christian love,

    Your Brothers,

    Greedy A-holes of Jehovah

    (Well, maybe that last line got lost in translation. lol)

    No need to wait for the weekend.

    However, can you rephrase " you are going to great effort...". Perhaps: "you are going to great lengths..." or "you are making great efforts..."

    "Greedy A-holes of Jehovah"

    At least they are getting a little more honest with the signing of the letters now.

    Just another tool to improve cash flow. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Just this week in the Congregation where I fake it, all the men with privileges (Elders, MS and attendants) were hit up for Cash for some "off the books" TV purchases. I guess the projector that is currently working is not cool enough.

    They are in the process of making 1 billion for 1 building they are going to sell in NY, halted construction, took congregations surplus $$, etc...& keep asking for more money?

    "The suggested contribution is 6.50 euros per publisher."

    So much for 2 Corinthians 9:7 - "Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

    Any J.W. who does not reduce or cease donating to the Org after hearing about this latest Publisher Tax, deserves no sympathy whatsoever for being bled by the parasitic leeches in Brooklyn.
