Hey, I've pasted below, a link to an article about the JW convention in the state of Oklahoma, just sent to me by a JW relative. According to their spokeman, it's the first one to be held this year. He is also quick to mention all the 'persecution' in Russia, while staying silent on the worldwide abuse, and shunning issues (a form of persecution in itself, IMO).
If anyone would like to help me add to the comments section, it'd be appreciated. I just feel that the public at large might benefit by knowing the other side of the story. Especially those who have been invited to attend.
