What do PCG's leaders have to say about this? Here is how Gerald Flurry responded on this matter as seen in a previous post.
Churchill was accused of having a “strong anti-German obsession.” Sometimes we are so accused. But some of our own members are German. We believe in facing the truth. Those who fail to do so are going to learn by the sledge hammer of events! (Gerald Flurry, Winston S. Churchill: The Watchman, 1999, 2002, 2006, Chapter 3, p. 18)But how strong is this argument? PCG only has about 20 German speaking members in Germany and Austria.
The pcg [sic] has about 20 native German-speaking members in Germany and Austria. Members in Vienna, Salzburg and northern and southern Germany receive recorded messages from headquarters. (Source.)Let people remember that fact from PCG's own writings the next time this weak argument is used again by PCG's leaders.
Now why would people think PCG has a “strong anti-German obsession”?
It might just have something to do with the fact that Gerald Flurry called Germans a people fated to be "a continual curse upon mankind" and chosen by Satan "to inflict a stream of misery and destruction upon mankind"?
Nahum is a book about Germany, a nation which has been a continual curse upon mankind. Satan chose the Germans to inflict a stream of misery and destruction upon mankind. (Gerald Flurry, Royal Vision, July-August, 2000, p. 39.)Why did Robert Morley once call Germans "Huns"?
Sixty-nine years later, London is under attack again. Only this time, the Huns are burning it economically. (Robert Morley, "The Battle for Britain Begins", Trumpet Weekly, October 17, 2009, p. 7.)The reason PCG's writers are said to have “strong anti-German obsession” is because this is an accurate assessment of what PCG's writers actually say.
