The main point is that on the jdub rank and file level in the U.S. they are still clueless and oblivious as to what's going on in other countries.
So true. Even when I say something to a JW about Australia or the U.K., they do not want to find out, they assume it's just propaganda from Satan's world, YADDA YADDA YADDA!!!
It is going to take a major news outlet in prime time For the word to get out about the pedophile cover up by the org.
Even that- there's been enough news by major sources to get all of California riled up, but it hasn't happened.
News moves on, JW's assume it's overblown, or it's one person with a vengeance getting lawyers to settle things. It would have to be WAY BIGGER to get U.S. attention of JW's.
I have resigned myself to accept that Watchtower will only go away if it is financially crippled. And some members will still be stuck in cult mode asking, "Where do we go now?"
