Who takes the title as to the greatest apostate ?
Rutherford in first place for voiding Russel's will and his utter defiance toward following previous theocratic protocol. Russel in second place for going in his own direction and publishing literature to promote his beliefs that went contrary to what he and Nelson Barbour had agreed on. Freddy Franz for his final talk as WT president, promoting his dissent over the threat of a Governing Body arrangement that would force him to relinquish his presidency.
Jesus - The Jewish apostate that started his own cult.
St.Paul - The apostate that started his own branch of Jesus's cult
C.T.Russell - The apostate that started a severely bastardized version of Christianity
J.F. Rutherford - The apostate who bastardized, an already bastardized version of Christianity.
Fred Franz - The apostate who used the Watchtower publishing house as his personal printing press which distributed the ideas he just "thought up" which everyone had to accept as truth.
The current Governing Body

Who takes the title as to the greatest apostate? - Danny Haszard, without a doubt ...
