The money Grab continues!! At a very recent circuit assembly (USA), the accounts overseer gave the typical accounts report for the CA in the early afternoon. There were 2100 people at the assembly. He stated that the expenses for the one day assy were $31750.58...that's right $31750.58. This included the expenses for the use of the WTS owned facility (Orangeburg SC) of $11750.58 PLUS a charge of $20,000.00 from the Branch to help defray the costs of renovations and improvements to Assembly Halls in the Branch territory?
WTF...$20,000...and they want the $$$$$$$$$$ before the ASSY is over. Thus, the deficit at about 2pm was $26,000 (or $11750.58 plus the $20,000.00 less about $5000.00 received in the morning already. $26K in the HOLE???
A wannabe came on stage and slickly gave 5 scriptures as to why we should pour out our resources to Jehovah now! Even though he owns everything already and could probably print perfect $100's in about 9 seconds!!
They must be claiming this from every circuit at their circuit assembly day. Can any others verify this?
The money grab is just unbelievable...it never ends...and there is absolutely no transparency as to the financial status and cash flow of the WTS. They must be really concerned about their cash flow and financial stability relative to the uncontrolled liability of the pedo lawsuits
.Even the hundred of millions of dollars made with the sale of the Brooklyn properties isn't enough. Steal more from the gullible and hard pressed.
What are they improving or renovating? Assy Halls...not likely
These assemblies are truly a money pit which now seems to be gettnig worse.
