Watchtower was a member of the United Nations. They applied in 1991 and were accepted in 1992. they subsequently renewed their membership each year afterwards, for nine (9) years, by signing an agreement form. They printed articles showing the U.N. in a favorable light in November Awake! 1998. When the Guardian newspaper printed a story about the watchtower being blatant liars and hypocrites for being members of an organization that they (WT) likened to the "wild beast" and other off-putting terms, watchtower withdrew membership from the U.N.days later.
"To Whom It May Concern" letter, put out by the United Nations themselves, because they were inundated with requests by concerned public (aka current and former members of the religion, more than likely) for confirmation of watchtower's membership:
Correspondence between the journalist (watchtower requested some sort of confidentiality or some clap-trap). The journalist was having none of it, because he caught the watchtower lying multiple times in their exchange:
And the Ram Cam thing was news to me (I think... lots of info has been bookmarked to read later over the past 3 years). But it didn't take long to confirm what's being said here, just by doing a simple internet search.
We're not a bunch of brainwashed infants. Watchtower (and other high-control groups) would like to make and keep us in a helpless, infantile state. The reality is much harder for watchtower and their brainwashed lackeys to avoid: we have access to a world of information. Information is the equivalent of hitting the light switch on the world of cockroaches: they can scatter and run to hide as best they can, but the real truth is poison to them. And reality is a breath of fresh air to those of us who've been oppressed by their nonsensical contortionist-style thinking, printings and overall bullshit lying.
Yes, lying. They're liars. They'll throw almost anyone under the bus in order to maintain a squeaky-clean image as an organization. But that's all their image is: a mirage. A pipe dream.
(November 22, 1998 Awake had 12 PAGES of articles favorable to the U.N. and its
activities. easily missed by some : it was the month my mom died)
