    It sounds like it's going to be a retirement community for very old Bethelites. He even said one of the buildings would be devoted to 24 hour care of the completely infirm, like a nursing home.

    Yep, good old reality sets in - even in an organization that has consistently said the end is so very near. People get old, infirm and die. And you kinda gotta look after them - well at least some of 'em - it's the decent thing to do.

    The WTBTS is going into survival mode. Thanks to the Internet many of the rank and file are wise to the corruption of 'Mother' and Mother senses that the waters are drying-up. No new Bible studies; very low rank & file meeting attendance, dwindling collections/donations and very embarrassing low baptisms at conventions. Therefore fewer and fewer Kingdom Halls needed.

    So what is a whore to do when she grows old with fewer and fewer Johns; looks used and wasted and no one pays her the attention she once received...she goes into survival mode. The bitch's days are numbered! Yay!

    LOL JWs will pretend that they never said their was a huge need for Kingdom Halls in the US, the narrative will be rewritten through repetition. The resolution for the KH building will just become a resolution for the "world wide work", in perpetuity.

    What did they do with the money? Child sex abuse payouts and hush money - that's what.

    What did they do with the money? Child sex abuse payouts and hush money - that's what.

    So far that amounts to a few 10's of millions.

    The money collected so far has to be well in excess of $1 billion (see my original post).

    They must be doing something with all that cash....but what?

    The JW governing body are money grabbing pirates and brazen daylight robbers! (Isn't brazen behaviour a disfellowshipping matter?)

    Not content with taking control of all the KH's worldwide which was a silent and dramatic financial coup instantly yielding wealth beyond the dreams of avarice ( say 140,000 congregations x $50,000?)

    Then demanding the congregations pay in perpetuity for the equivalent or more of the former mortgage payments for those same halls to the new owners of them, the org leadership.

    Then they sell their superfine NY city property portfolio and Mill Hill site in London, then make demands to financially support the new contruction sites which should have been funded by the sale of the original ones. Next they ask for enormous new KH development money from the dozy rank and file (who must never question or they will be thrown out of the club) and followed by this announcement that they were actually just collecting money and no new KH's are really going to be built after all.

    Without a doubt what actually characterises the JW movement is not their false claim that they never solicit for funds or pass round a collection plate but the leadership is hell bent on amassing worldly riches on an impressive worldly scale.

    I expect their rationale is that to ride out their court judgements costs they will need to be super rich but truly this has nothing to do with Christianity, it has everything to do with the avid pursuance of wealth as the prime motivator in their religion. And the sheep just nod their tiny heads and sheepishly follow.

    "Where's all the money going?"

    Expenses, general upkeep, cost of doing business and other overhead costs are what drive many businesses into the ground. The WTBTS is no different.

    Mother has facility after facility to maintain. Add to that the many departments, such as their legal & medical/health departments. Those don't come cheep! They also have equipment galore to maintain. How many law suits are they battling? That's got to be a shitload! As the old saying goes about money. ..'easy come, easy goes'!

    So it goes without saying...the Bitch has a lot on her plate & tons to worry about....Yay!

    With Armageddon arriving so very soon they can afford to wind down, now is the time for their private God, Big J to look after them.

    Come on they don't actually trust Jehovah do they? (they just repeat it ad nauseam that they do)
