My understanding is that the WTBTS received a trust of some sort, and that much of the money came from Phillip-Morris stocks. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Here is the problem. The WTBTS ( The Channel of God and the One True Religion in all of human history..) said in the February 8, 1968 Awake! pages 21-23, that ,"By considering the background of a company, an investor can ensure that his money will not be used to support an unethical enterprise."
If I were to take a job at a Casino, or a job that requires the use of a firearm, or work at a plant that makes components of missiles, what would happen to me as a sheeple? Would I not be the recipient of a shepherding call from the Eldubs?? Would I qualify for priviliges? What if I accepted employment that caused me to miss meetings?
Why didn't the WTBTS refuse the money from an "unethical enterprise" and rely on Jeehoobidoob to pay the bills? Hypocrite much???
