    I cry foul !!!! A 42 rear old JW father of three would have like President Trump to ask President Putin of Russia a simple question when the two leaders met in Helsinki on Monday: Why are Russians who pay their taxes, follow the law and embrace the Christian values promoted by the Kremlin being forced to flee their country? "We don't steal, we don't smoke, we don't DRINK (are we talking about not drinking blood). Is this new light, no booze??

    I'm sure the org is providing them safe passage.

    Regarding safe passage: Well at least the top brass for sure. The rest are on their own and must rely on JHVH.

  • Dreamerdude

    The org is only required to provide safe passage out for the least of Christ's brothers. Since they got Douglas Mark Sanderson out, they can now sleep in peace after stirring up so much trouble for the poor humble Russians.
