It is interesting that watchtower announce that “Jehovah’s Witnesses will appeal the unconstitutional ruling of Norway.” Yet when instructing the brethren the GB refer to watchtower, or governing body, or “the channel“ as the authority even when selling the Kingdom Halls that the brethren have paid for (commonly known as “theft”). The brethren get no say in the matter. Yet when it comes to rebellion against a legitimate and lawful comment on the governing body’s use of public money and funds, they suddenly include all the brethren in their decision making. Have any of the witnesses, at any time, ever asked the Governing Body to beg for money from a government and its people? Have the witnesses ever asked them to invest in business and manufacturing or to compromise our faith by joining the United Nations and advertising their principles for them? Yet suddenly, for money that is not asked for or needed by the brethren, the Watchtower set the flock up in opposition to the government of Norway by putting them forward as plaintiffs against a thoroughly deserved judgement by the public and which they claim to be serving.

Barnaby, that is a very good point you have brought out.
 
Just more lies of omission, they are masters at it. Here's the lie, "unless we change our practices regarding the removal unrepentant wrongdoers, from the congregation." Here's what the statement would say if they told the truth, "unless we change our practices regarding baptism of minors, and our practice of disfellowshipping minors." The reason I have pointed out such mundane protection of minors such as the fact a minor cannot enter into a legally binding contract for something so trivial as a cell phone contract, is because the whole world recognizes that minors cannot be held accountable for their decisions in the same way that adults are. This is why for example their is juvenile court, as opposed to the court that deals with adults.

All they do is bring reproach on themselves and Jehovah's name! Shameful!!
 
Of course, when it comes to things like tax exemptions as an institution, and taking poison shots you must listen to the "higher authorities", but when it comes to agreeing with decisions as such made by Norway, you are suddenly an apostate.

Such bastion of logic.

First Russia, now Norway.
 
A child is still a child. Maybe they should of not baptized them while still a minor. Makes me think that Tony Morris, former GB stepped down because of his statement that under no circumstances will they change their disfellowshipping practice. Well, they had to when it comes to baptized minors. Even the Bible scriptures condemns ostracizing children, and being worst than a person without faith in doing so. That was a bad official comment for Tony to make. The courts probably used that against him. Thus, it fits the timeline of Tony stepping down from his GB position.
