WT Scours Internet
Interesting thread on another site
WT must have devoted a certain amount of resources to this - at least on a daily basis.
This seems like an inter-committee letter/memo. It is amazing that this level of info escapes into the wild. The stalwarts in Bethel must feel pretty exposed by this level of treachery. They must all be looking over their shoulders and wondering "who is leaking this stuff"?
Yes. Confirmed by the Coordinators Committee of the Governing Body, in evidence the Australian Branch submitted to the Australian Royal Commission:
The leak mentioned in that document was the August 1, 2016 TO ALL BODIES OF ELDERS Re: Protecting Minors From Abuse
This was, to my knowledge, first leaked by user Ich3b over at the exjw sub reddit.
The real question is WHY ALL THE SECRECY?
The society is showing itself up as a high control cult by the very nature of such "secret letters".
The excuse used by the brothers at the ARC that these documents as "audience appropriate" simply doesn't cut it!
Why don't they just have the same policy for every branch? Stupid and it's obviously not a Christian organization if the Law has to force them to give a damn about the children beyond lip service. Don't they understand they need to protect the innocent? Friggin hypocrites only caring about cya (covering Yo Ass). Just from a financial and practical sense they should go with the guidelines of this ARC report for every branch. It's not hostile. And the way they take liberties with the old law covenant that's obsolete to justify archaic positions that are as insane as stoning disobedient kids, surely they can offer "new light" to do the right thing. (Such as the sound scriptural reasoning presented during the hearings) They just look like a bunch of bozos and that is not Jehovahs doing, but their own. Obviously they don't represent him as they claim.... by their fruits you will know my followers. I read that once upon a time.
Thanks for the links and postings!1 much appreciated!
