From what I have noticed the 3 main issues causing unrest in several different countries are:
And since the Catholic Church has gotten so much bad attention lately, all the other religious organizations are under the microscope to.
In the last few months I have noticed different areas of the United States, Netherlands, Ireland, Mexico, Russia, and a couple more in there somewhere, all mentioning child abuse, or claiming the WT is extremist.
On the shunning topic, there are just to many JW's who are in good standing that refuse not to speak with a family member who is disfellowshipped. Many associate with DF family members secretly.
Some JW's don't give a damn what the Watchtower says and they associate with disfellowshipped family members anyway.
Others who are really hard nose about it shun family members like the plague.
It's the "hiding of child abuse" that seems to get people mad enough to have smoke coming out of their ears. Then when JW's see others in the congregation being disciplined for mentioning the SCA topic, things begin to click in their minds that maybe the apostates were telling the truth all along.
Then the first thing you know they start to investigate.
Lets face it, JW's are tired and worn out from the constant whip of their task master the Watchtower. The stress,pressure, and burdens put on JW's by the Watchtower is enough to give someone a stroke or heart attack. Constant guilt that they are not doing enough, or giving enough financial contributions.
I mean....hell they already took the kids ice cream money!
Going to grab some tea.
