OK, so I played the game of putting on my JW apologetic cap for a moment, and thought of how a devout JW could rationalize this whole liquor buying situation.
They could say:
"This actually proves that Jehovah is guiding his organization!! He was bringing this activity of ToMo3 to light, and it would also prove to be a loyalty test for all JWs, to see if they would be stumbled right out of the truth!"
I know we have all heard JWs rationalize the most ridiculous stuff of the Society...so how is this going to be any different?
