Were Russell's Associates Who Went To Prison Considered Faithful To The End
Yep! During throughout between 1936-1940s: During the Hitler persecutions, Professor Franklyn Hudgings, a Bible Student, by publications and lectures enthused Jewish audiences with Zionist hopes based on their prophets. In harmony with what Pastor Russell taught and believed.
Hmmmmm, It seems everyone that fell out of JFR's gracec suddenly died!
: A. H. Macmillan - the Brown nosers brown nosers, stayed and lived a good life, until Knorr too over, then he became just another bethelite.
Indeed. A.H. ("Mac") Macmillan who "wrote" "Faith on the March" ended his life as a deaf man in the corner of some Brooklyn bulding hand wrapping Watchtower and Aweake! magazines that were to be sent to some fool subscribing to that crap.
What did this man who went to prison with Rutherford, et. al. and who devoted his entire life to the WTS deserve to end up like this? He was a POPULAR and well-loved speaker in WatchtowerWorld(tm), that's all. The fact that dubs really LIKED this man was too much for Nathan Homo Knorr (sic), and as a result, Knorr put him in the sewer of jobs at Bethel for the rest of his life. Knorr was well-known for his love and compassion for people.
Of course we all know that Knorr did this for Bible-Based(tm) reasons.
"Nathan Homo Knorr".....you just love to say unprovable things, Farkel!
Most of the "faithful" who went to prison became part of the "evil slave class".
Faith on the March, A.H.Macmillan, p.97 :
Then the question came up as to [Macmillan's] signature on this paper. Nobody could identify it. The prosecution called to the stand William F. Hudgings, who had charge of all the Society's printing. They put him on the stand, and because he insisted he could not identify my signature Judge Howe finally adjudged him guilty of contempt of court and ordered him committed to jail--even though he was the Government's witness. On the same day the grand jury indicted him for perjury. Pleading not guilty, he obtained an order for release on bail but was unable to avail himself of it because he continued to be held under the commitment for contempt. In fact, the commitment directed that it should continue in force until the witness had purged himself of the contempt for which he was being punished. It was not until a writ of habeas corpus was allowed by the Supreme Court of the United States and a decision rendered in his favor that he was released on bail December 12, 1918 Finally, April 14, 1919, ten months after his commitment, the Supreme Court decision in his favor was announced. In writing the opinion of the Supreme Court [Ex parte Hudgings, 249 U. S. 378 (April 14, 1919)], Chief Justice White stated that the lower court "had exceeded its jurisdiction by punishing as a contempt an act which it had no power to so punish, and that even if the act punished was susceptible of being treated as a contempt the action of the court was arbitrary, beyond the limits of any discretion possessed, and violative of due process of law under the Fifth Amendment." This "arbitrary" attitude of Judge Howe, identified expressly in the Hudgings opinion by the Chief Justice of the United States, well represented Howe's attitude throughout the trial.
After Hudgings failed to identify my signature a former officer of the Society was sworn in and he said he could identify the signature. He couldn't remember ever having seen me write anything but he said, "That is his signature."
It's funny....most of these men COULD'VE become Jehovah's Witnesses but did not. They went through prison sentencing and some trumped up charges but stayed away from joing the JWs.
Who was HIRSH?
