Will You Help Jehovah's Witnesses At Bethel To Get Retirement and Health Benefits?

Why did the Watchtower Society fight Bethelites all the way to the Supreme Court of Spain in order to keep them from receiving Social Security payments? Don't these hardworking men and women deserve at least some sort of Social Security as they retire?

Don't these hardworking men and women deserve at least some sort of Social Security as they retire? How about Bethel here in the United States and abroad? Bethelites are being dismissed in droves with no retirement or health benefits. Do they need to sue the Watchtower like the Spanish brothers had to? Maybe we should!

Below are some references. The letters are in Spanish for obvious reasons. If you don't understand Spanish, find someone to help you.

Hi jeshurun, I welcome your responses and am glad that you question my reasonings. We cannot simply accept what someone says or claims. Even the Apostle Paul was grilled heavily by the Bereans.

What I can tell you about the story is that when folks join Bethel they are required to sign a vow of poverty, which means they are not allowed to pay into the Social Security systems of most nations.

When they retire, they have nothing built up in a form of support. The average Bethelite gets ZERO benefits upon dismissal. That might be ok for a healthy and young person who can work. But how about the older ones?

One group of folks get about $600 per month. The Circuit Overseers, and that is only if they continue in the full time service.

In the past couple of years the US Bethels have closed locations and laid off more than 2,000 brothers and sisters.

Be well, and thanks for responding!
Update 2: ---EDIT---
I hope I don't get this one removed. Last time I responded like this it got removed for the reason called "Chatting"
