I just heard a JW radio advertisement regarding family and children for the first time. This may have been the radio version of the "award winning for excellence" PSA (public service announcement) which the WT Society ballyhoos in their media website www.jw-media.org.
While listening to an oldies/nostalgic music station based in a wealthy Twin Cities suburb (Stillwater, Minnesota), they had a newsbreak, followed by an awkward half-minute of silence, then this commercial about family and children came on.
I paid little attention until I heard the word "Watchtower", and the closing line "this message brought to you by Jehovah's Witnesses".
So THIS is the WT Society's response to the child-molestation / pedophilia scandal that has been openly plaguing them the past two years?
Instead of amending their practices and encouraging all such things to be reported to the proper authorities, they continue to pretend "NOTHING IS WRONG", and worse yet, they advertise on the radio that they are genuinely interested in the welfare of innocent little children?
GIVE ME A MAJOR BREAK. All the WT Society cares about is their reputation and keeping their publishing business going.
The average JW may wonder why their organization is going into the radio-advertising business. But it is no wonder. It's all public relations, to draw attention away from the scandal.
Don't you think so?
