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.
