Actually, the UN is a big issue. It tells me that there is NO EVIDENCE OF HS.
The biggest problem of the WTS is arrogance (other than making loads of mistakes as wannabe prophets). The WTS?s basic MO is "allow no quarter". In modern parlance, that means ZERO TOLERANCE. So, you can join a YMCA and get DF?d or "auto-DA?d (they will claim that you DA?d yourself JUST BY THE ACTION ITSELF).
But, the "leaders" can join the UN and GET AWAY WITH IT, especially after ignoring and whitewashing any notice of this. The duplicity here is staggering. There are scriptures that point to those judging harshly BEING JUDGED IN THE SAME MANNER.
In the days when I grew up, it was put in no uncertain terms that the UN was evil. Now they are backpedaling on this FOR POLITICAL ACCOMMODATIONS AND SUCH LIKE GAIN.
It is great that they got "caught with their pants down" and "their hands in the cookie jar". Even if they can do the usual weaseling out of it with the R&F, they aren?t fooling God or the on-lookers.
Some of us actually believed what the WTS taught us: if you do so, then the "let your YES mean YES and let your NO mean NO" says that Brooklyn is biggest of the liars out there. That is enough for condemnation, in itself.
I am an "old-timer", raised in the truth in the 50?s. I haven?t been to a meeting in 30 years but: I pIONEERED, was an "MS equivalent" (I say this because it was before the MS arrangement existed) and saw lots of the back room politics. That includes getting the "evil-eye" from N.H. Knorr and surviving.
And that is just what it is, in the back room: POLITICS!!!
