DID ANYONE SEE THE A&E SPECIAL "AFTERMATH: JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES" ON CABLE TV ?

Here in the United States we have Cable TV with such things as "History Channel", "Discovery Channel", "Scifi Channel", and "A&E" the "Arts and Entertainment Channel".  Apparently around November 13 of this year they had a famous (?) TV star, Leah Remini,  who had been a Scientologist since she was eight years old turn Apostate, and she has done at least two TV seasons exposing the ills of the Church of Scientology", do an Expose' of Jehovah's Witnesses.

I do not watch TV as a rule, and missed it, and I spent a few days looking for it and trying to download a copy.  It was not on YouTube, but I did find it under "Aftermath Jehovah's Witnesses" on the Russian equivalent of YouTube, "Rutube.ru". It would not download with my usual download software, so I had to find a free screen capture software, which took about four hours to get the settings just right, and I was able to download the two hour program from my monitor, as it was playing.

Therefore, I watched the TV program three times, as I experimented with the settings to get a good screen copy to my hard drive..

I could see both sides of the program viewpoints presented, and did not find us to be misrepresented in any way whatsoever ... but if there was EVER a clear example of the Law of Unintended Consequences, the horror the Governing Body has caused in disfellowshipping the way that it is currently done ... by ripping families apart, and creating  irreparable damage that can never be corrected with reinstatement, was chilling, and puts us in the same class as Scientologists ... which completely disregarding the horror and hardsip, and cruelty without any mercy whatsoever it creates locally, shames Jehovah's Name and Reputation over the whole planet.

I don't believe there is anything a local Jehovah's Witness could do ... rob a bank ... have a harem ... have sex with horses ... etc., ad nauseum ... that would besmirch Jehovah's name and reputation globally as much as our current blatantly cruel public policies of destroying whole families for the sins of one person.

I am very glad to have the education I have to know that the TRUTH is still the truth .... even though the 85% drivel has rotted and fermented into rotten sewage.

Most JWs do NOT have this educational advantage ... so their lives are permanently destroyed.

I don't expect much from people, and almost NOTHING from groups of people .... so for me, like getting one of those great salads at the Olive Garden Restaurant, and finding a big chunk of solid sewage in it ... I hold my nose, and eat around it.

This TV Special is global news .... what could I possibly say to the average person that would clear the Name of God, that the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses, NOT THE TELEVISION PROGRAM, has corrupted by its Pharisaic policies that have real world consequences?

The exact same thing happened in ancient Israel, and a system that God blessed and supported for a thousand years and more was abandoned by God.

The exact same thing.

Apparently, from your thread, Jack Ryan, almost a million people saw the show. ... and there will be MORE about Jehovah's Witnesses. I clicked on "21 replies", in your above post, to review it.

I clicked on "21 replies", in your above post, to review it.  I had forgotten much.

The Governing Body was invited to be on the show ... but declined.  ( !!!!!!! )

Instead, the program showed their published opinions  in recordings and videos, verbatim.

It was QUITE fair. The Society was quoted and shown with precision accuracy .....sigh.

This is where understanding the Law of Unintended Consequences is so very vital.

When the GB declines to defend themselves and their policies before an audience of a MILLION people at one time .... why should I bother going out in the cold to knock on doors for twenty five years, to get ONE new convert ... when they are chasing them away by the tens of thousands?

The Law of Unintended Consequences.  Yes, but is it really unintended? 

Let them chase the people away.  The worry is, when these broken ones leave hoping to find comfort and healing, a good many will also be soured about Christ's teachings, God and the Bible in general. 

And the organization's leadership will say, "See?  Didn't we tell you they would leave God?"  

 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are."  Matt 23:15
