old time religion Judge Joseph Franklin Rutherford, Chief Squabbler and Big Pain in the Rear
The Judge, while serving (no…not the Lord) as the President of the Watch Tower conglomerate was always fighting with his Board of Directors, and under his tutelage the church lost tons of members. He was also jailed once for stirring up unpatriotic behavior during the First World War. He hated Christmas and birthdays. He hated singing national anthems too.
When he passed away, it took "them" five months to figure out where he should be buried, and even then "they" tried to keep it a secret for some reason.
The piece above is accurate, more or less. It is said he sold FOUR HUNDRED MILLION BOOKS!
