Thanks to Ray Franz for writing it. Parts of the book have been talked about on the board before, but HOLY $#!+...seeing page upon page of evidence kept my jaw in a constant drop...
A few thoughts...
>Franz seems to have little malice for the org, and it shows in the book.
>I looked at it with a very skeptical eye (as I do everything) and tried to see it from the perspective of a witness who sincerely believed. I was still floored by the callousness of the comments of these people.
> Control really does seem to be the watchword for these folks, and they've trained the rank and file well. These people don't take a step without checking in with the service department.
>If Rutherford had not been in charge, how much different would the society be?
>For a faith that likes to point out the shortcomings of others, they aren't very forthright about theirs.
