    Bible says: wicked people are fat, happy and cheery in their sin. Kind of like the people that

    are so happy when celebrating halloween.

    JW's: it doesn't mean anything!

    This organisation is going to morph beyond recognition.

    A 'harlot' indeed.

    I would bet big, big, big money that the video has absolutely nothing to do with Bethel from an official standpoint.  It's just a something someone (or a small group) at Bethel has done for a laugh.  There is not some big conspiracy here.  Not everything has some agenda behind it.

    The video is very well produced. There has been a lot of work filming and editing that video. But mostley..there are more than 500 bethelites in that video.....that's not a small group. Of course someone up in yhe hierarchy must have known about the video being made and has given his OK to it.

    Fair enough but that doesn't mean there is an official stamp of approval or that the hierarchy got it made for the purposes of some agenda. jw.org is the conduit for official content. If they wanted it out then why is Joe Bethelite having such a job trying to put the lid on the can?

    To the conservative mindset, silence is usually equated with consent.

    And the WT hierarchy's silence on "Happy" speaks volumes.

    K99, you are right, not everything has an agenda. Still, PR is what it is. The "[email protected]" song is a convenient piece of "unofficial" PR.

    Yet they are trying to keep the lid on it, get it pulled off YT.  I don't quite understand how it would have got to the point of being put up without Bethel hierarchy's silence (and I agree implication of tacit approval) but then why and get it dropped as quickly as it appeared?

    The same reason Ad agencies put up ads they know will offend, and then quickly pull them once the outrage begins. In a mock "shock, horror we didn't intend to offend anyone" official statement. By then, of course, the objective has been achieved, attention has been directed to the offending ad and the agency comes off as good guy for pulling it.
