We were talking with a friend who is in a different area and they mentioned that their present Kingdom Hall building used to be a church before the brothers bought it cheaply and renovated it. "Of course," John then said, "it'll be dedicated to Jehovah after all the work is done so even if everyone in the community still call it the old church, we'll know it is Jehovah’s place of worship."
Hadn't consciously thought about it until now, but isn't it hypocrisy to (re)dedicate a church and it becomes OK for the witnesses to use. When the same witnesses condemn Christendom for (re)dedicating pagan celebrations into the church such as the sun god to the Son God, and Christmas etc. Surely it is exactly the same principle.
Of course it is alright if "we" do it, but totally wrong if any other church group does it. Typical spin doctors.
