Well. They are loyal to the ORGANIZATION. They call the borg "the loyal and discreet slave". They provide the "spiritual food" (with plenty of arsenic if you ask me) to their followers. So they follow a group of people rather than just one. These are leaders that dictate the policies that the average jw follow. Jw's are discouraged from reading the bible on their own sinc

First of all, let me finish laughing. It's always so funny how things come around... That I happen to ask a question and never said the name of the group I belonged to and it just so happens that you guys end up talking about the exact group I belonged to...
