You know what I think would be a GREAT new feature for JW.ORG Streaming Programming?

( A rhetorical question, as I realize there are truly infinite answers ....)

Have a monthly feature on JW Broadcasting, where Witnesses from all over the world, can call in live, and ask a round table of the Governing Body any questions they want to ask, and have them answered in real time, "on the air" streaming video.

They could have it broadcast from the Gazebo on the shores of the Society's Lake at World Headquarters, every Wednesday after the Governing Body has their weekly coordination meeting (weather permitting ...). 

...... Sort of Like Trump addressing the nation from the South Lawn of the White House, and answering reporter's questions! (weather permitting ...)

Unrehearsed, Unedited, Non-scripted, truly spontaneous, and all encompassing.

Things the writing staff has not addressed, since 1870.

Anything at ALL!

I am betting that those Brothers and Sisters that live on the other side of our rumbling, heavy planet would by the millions, without any encouragement at all, set their alarms, and get up in the middle of the night to enthusiastically catch THAT Internet Program!

Those that habitually fall asleep from time to time at the Kingdom Hall, including myself, would watch with eyes frozen open !  We might even have trouble BLINKING!

Over time, it would probably become more popular than original STAR TREK reruns.

We might even get MORE Telly Awards !

The GB would only act like any big businessmen or politician. They would avoid answering questions directly or just plainly tell lies. :)

(Referring to the JW.ORG screen shot posted above ... which was presented without comment of any kind! )

I would like to get on the phone with Bro. Anthony Morris III (AKA "Tight Pants Tony"), and ask him if that JW Broadcasting photo of the Telly Awards is a front or rear view?

Melinda has a good point ....

Wouldn't happen - too much would have to be referred to the Service Desk and the lawyers. Forget it.

..... Perhaps the discussion group could include 20 or 30 of the WT lawyers, along with the GB.

It would certainly protect the programming from getting into a rut!

You could call the program "The Big Bang Theory, View from The Far Side".

Yes, that JAMES THOMAS ROOK JR sure does love that Llyod Evans propaganda! 🤗

However, the narrative was, the Watchtower bought the awards themselves. Posted it on JW.org, people found out the deception, Watchtower took down their self-praise. Old News James. 😏

Soon apostates will have Morris marrying the POPE for gay rights, and make believe it’s true. 😁

So be careful outta with the word idiots! Fact-finding by a journalist is not high on research, here. 🙄

Have any more recent apostate propaganda, James? This one has been worked to death on the internet, already. 😂

======================================================================================

My only comment on this post was that they might win ANOTHER Telly Award, Billy.

=======================================================================================

And the "Lloyd Evans Propaganda" you refer to ( mis-spelling his name.... ) was ONLY a screen shot of the ACTUAL JW.ORG website posting. ... without comment of any kind.

You are PROJECTING again,Billy.

I suspect, like any presumably sane Witness, you are deeply ashamed of the GB's self aggrandizement, but cannot bring yourself to believe they really did something so self-serving and world class stupid.

I fully understand that.

But, since you have brought up the scandal, whereas I did not ( a very important point, methinks ...) I followed the link you posted, but probably did not read in its entirety, as I did .... and found these excerpts:

Again Billy, you are defending the indefensible, and projecting more wide screen than CinemaScope.

Of course this would never happen. The org. is not some kind of talk show or democratically run establishment.  You either take it or leave it.

Well the JW Org is definitely not Theocratic that's for sure. 

But you're right it's not democratic either, it's a dictatorship. :)

You bring this up so frequently (and HOW old are you?) that I have become curious over something:

Please post a full-length photo of yourself.

If, as I suspect, it shows you wearing spray-on pants, that will explain a lot.

This is the only full length photo of me I could find, but it was taken about 1968, when I had more hair.

Of course, that was 50 years ago, but you can see the resemblance ....

You actually cut a pretty fine figure. Whatever happened?

This pic suggests that you were with Moses, and that whereas he led all the other Israelites out through the Red Sea, you hightailed it in your fancy car.

I never met Moses, as I was in what is now known as Rockville, Maryland at the time ... actually ... many years before, courting a woman named Wilma Slaghoople ( In a car with truly AWFUL brakes, far different than that Aston Martin DB-5 , which I wrecked, running into a brick wall in an alley), who dumped me for a guy that as a teenager had worked for her father's computer company, and later got a job in a rock quarry, and married Wilma. 

If memory serves, his name was Fred Flinkstone, and he was always palling around with some guy named Barney Rubble.

Like they say, to mix series ... "There can be only one!"

I tried to not lose my head over it.

So. You don’t wear tight suit pants yourself. You probably agree with everyone else that they look ridiculous. You also probably agree that they are ‘manipulative’ — they are the product of a highly sexualized fashion industry that seeks always to highlight sensuality. When these ones turn their attention to children, they put them in clothes that suggest they are hookers. Mothers—and I do not mean just Christian mothers, I mean just protective ones—have to buy boy’s gym shorts for their daughters so as to make them not a target for pedophiles.

And yet you giggle on like a adolescent about “tight pants Tony.” What’s with that?

Actually I do not giggle... I laugh out loud at HIS obsession. 

It's HILARIOUS!

( in a creepy sort of way ...)

I never noticed such things existed .... and since I found out (courtesy TPT ...) I have never seen any, anywhere.

...and I don't remember the Bible saying anything about ridiculous clothing ... like a Jew wearing a skirt, with tassels on the bottom with alternating bells and pomegranates, as an example, and walking down the street with a phylactery bumping you in the forehead.

Now THAT is the stuff of comedy routines!

That is because you are a hillbilly. If you’d get your head out of your own still, you would see that such styles are widespread. 

The world is bigger than you. Tony sees that.

Well, I have lived and worked in Zaire, Norway, Peru, and all over the United States ... but I am SURE that TPT sees a lot more things than normal people see.

... probably PTSD from his time in Vietnam as an Army Medic.

...and as an aside ... all my relatives look like they came off the set of "Hee-Haw", so you are right about me being a hillbilly at heart.

That sentence from yesterday’s Watchtower study called to mind an experience: 

From paragraph 17: “A brother recalls appreciatively: ‘I saw tears well up in the eyes of one elder as he contemplated my situation. That image will always remain in my mind.’”

I was sure that the kid at the tire repair show had lost my specialty tool when I had my tires switched. The dopey mounted snowtires (that somebody talked me into buying) require a unique socket—it is not standard and it is not metric. I have two of them so it is not that big of a deal, but when it was not in its designated place after I picked up the car from the shop (it could only be there and nowhere else because I always put it there) I drove back to the shop and let them hear about it at the front counter. “He’s got it in his toolbox, somewhere,” I said, “just absentminded, not theft—he is just careless. Make him check for it.”

When I returned home I found the socket.

I know how companies bully their employees. I figured they must have leaned into him pretty heavily. I drove back to apologize—not to the front counter, but to him personally. Nah—they said it wasn’t necessary. I said it was. No, it was nothing, they said, don’t worry about it. Look, I know that “the customer is always right,” I responded—he probably was made to feel some heat. They said no—not a problem. (what’s the big deal? They just didn’t want to pull him out of the shop and interrupt his work flow.)

Did I tell you that when I get something in my head I am not easily put off? I said that I could probably just walk right in there and say it quick—which bay is he in, anyway? and made for the door. When they saw that I would not be dissuaded—what were they going to do? toss me out on my ear with a showroom full of customers looking on? they fetched him for me.

He looked defensive, as though I was going to yell at him. Instead, I apologized. I said that I was sure that he had lost the tool, but when I got home I found it. Very likely someone had made him sweat about it. He was a Spanish speaking kid and he looked like someone who doesn’t get apologized to that often.

A little to my embarrassment, I felt some tears welling up, just like the elder in the paragraph. I mean, several were looking on. I probably made a fool of myself. And maybe it was completely unnecessary. Maybe they had all had a good laugh over the jerk who griped over his “lost” tool. Dunno. 

But it didn’t matter. It is not a bad thing to show empathy. The elder in that Watchtower paragraph not only benefited the congregation member by tears welling up—unless I am very mistaken, he benefited himself as well.
