    Paying for the sins of their church

    Australians are becoming less religious so congregations are getting smaller. That means there are fewer parishioners to contribute money.

    ..."They're simply looking at the dollars they can reap from the sale of this wonderful old building and I simply don't feel that I should be spending my weekends keeping the view clear," Mr Thomas said.

    ...The Royal Commission into child sexual abuse exposed widespread paedophilia within religion and concluded that its leaders were at times weak, ineffectual, and even complicit.

    And so the sell off begins. No doubt the religious leaders will begin merging congregations and selling off the valuable real estate.

    I think we shall see a more serious situation develop for God's true organization over there in Australia. I see a lot of Kingdom Halls up for sale soon to raise the cash pay outs for recovery of thousands of victims.

    Of course that wouldn`t be the same reason why the JW religion is selling off so much Real Estate now would it ?

    Watchtower forced to sell assets? But don’t you know Watchtower is stronger than ever? No crisis here. It’s all part of a cunning GB plan, you see.

    Yep! I think a lot more Kingdom Halls will be up for sale as more victims come forward.

    Rotflmao!! That article has nothing to do with jw’s. Nice try. Dosent mention our former cult once. Fake news.

    The original post says nothing of the sort.

    The inference we can draw of course, is obvious.

    The facts:

    1. Other religions are selling assets to pay for abuse claims.

    2. JWs have a high number of abuse cases.

    3. They are selling branches, assembly halls and Kingdom Halls.

    Morpheus' conclusion:

    JWs have never been better off financially. It's all part of a GB master plan to restructure. There is no crisis.

    You are becoming the Comical Ali of the Watchtower on this forum.

    Hmmmm lets see..... you make a thread entittled “ “ on an ex jw forum and you think people are to assume its a post about some other religion? Lol no no. You knew what you were doing. Its called ‘click bait’ in many circles.

    As for you oh slim one.... you dont even know what your position is let alone mine. Figure out what “collapse” means then we can talk :)
