There are big things happening over at the Watchtower Society and it isn't all good. Just remember you heard it here first.
There is a power struggle going on between Losch and Jaracz. Jaracz has had health problems for the last year or two and so is not as able to do as much as he once did. Losch is trying to become the new charismatic leader and he is challenging Jaracz more and more. Losch believes that the Watchtower of the early 90's where they were soft on education was the work of apostates and this led directly to a major decrease in growth (Jehovah let apostates write the Watchtower!?) Anyway, this is why they are now taking a hardline on education.
Barr is the only one really standing up to Losch. We'll see what happens.
Oh, by the way, wouldn't it be interesting if the name Jehovah's Witnesses was changed? (More on that later.)
