    So this will happen as soon as within the next four weeks? Do you expect this to feed out into JW land quickly/officially or will it not be mentioned?

    What will visitors be shown when touring Bethel? The basketball courts and swimming pool?

    Makes economic sense to do this...its cheaper than bethelites.

    If this is true then it is quite funny as the printing presses have always been used by the Bethel tour guides as the billy big bollocks highlight of the tour, evidence of how amazing Jehovah's organisation is. Of course it is quite impressive, especially if you have never seen a large press before. Not so impressive when you consider every large printing organisation has such facilities, especially newspaper printers.

    If true then it would seem Jehovah's requirements are not so special that a worldly organisation cannot come in and take the whole printing and distribution operation over and do it not just for the local branch but for other previously significant branches as well.

    Also amazing is the fact that this would only be being done if it made financial sense. They must be at, or very close to, the point where the cost of running the presses (paid for up front), infrastructure (paid for up front) and labour (volunteer) are greater then the ability of the income to support it.

    How sad it is to see that Jehovah's hand is to short to continue supporting the printing in his own house and by his holy people...

    US / Canada to be outsourced next?

    Really striking news.....the thundering, rolling, shuddering high speed presses, producing thousands & thousands of magazines per hour, were always the very symbol of how Jehovah was blessing the org.

    So what's next? Is Jehovah going to outsource the driving of his chariot to Ben Hur & Associates Ltd.?

    6 MANN printing presses, have been hammered to death over their lives spewing out twaddle and false prophesies. Best offer before July holidays.
