I gasped at the shameless attitude that the GB are now exhibiting regarding money. A Spanish language sister site; extj.com, is paraphrased on JW net revealing an appalling scandal in the handling of the donations from the flock for the building of an assembly hall. http://www.extj.com/showthread.php?24740-Denuncia
A site in Mexico was DONATED for this purpose and the GB said that it could go ahead IF THE BROTHERS FUNDED THE WHOLE PROJECT themselves. Five years later and millions of Dollars banked in good faith by the poor brothers into the coffers of the WTBTS...and still no assembly hall.
Worse still this is not an isolated case, there are more to come to light in Central America.
Their reply to those wondering where their money went is that they are “analysing the needs of the congregations to see whether or not to build” (words to that effect).
In the mean time would they like to continue to contribute more funds and/ or would they like to donate the money received for Kingdom use?! No provision is made for respectfully returning the money to those who donated for a specific purpose.
What does it feel like if you have money taken from you and your thief then asks would you like to call it a donation? This sounds like a Mafioso proposition to me.
