note: although i wrote this many years before he died, it was the reading of crisis of conscience that inspired this poem and it is to the memory of raymond franz that i dedicate it and to all those both within and without the organization that desire change and that are working towards it..

in my experience, the jws always seemed to shy away from much association from the term "russellites".
most are wiling to accept that bible students took on the name jehovah's witnesses, but they seem to disavow much association with the term "russellites".. is this perception true?
does anyone know if there is anything in their literature after 1931 where they admit they are the same group as the russellites?

this site is such a great and valuable resource and simon is to be commended for running it for so long.

total car franchising corporation, plaintiff, v. doug anderson, defendant.. .
defendant argued against confirmation because a prior arbitration award in his favor rendered the arbitrators' award void, and an estoppel defense applied.
outcome: confirmation denied, because second arbitration lacked a contract basis or foundation because the first arbitration dissolved the contract, the award was null, void, and unenforceable, and equitable estoppel applied to preclude plaintiff from denying the committee decision.. .

an elder read a letter last night, and i practically giggled through the whole thing.
his poorly manufactured gravitas was most amusing, given the ludicrous content of the letter.. it seems the society is pissed that the friends aren't choosing the "recommended lodging" when going to conventions.
i remembered two important details about the letter.
