With 2x2s, because there is such obvious problems between what they teach and what the Bible teaches (to start with) they HAVE TO BE the secret sect to even exist. In the past workers were known to avoid having their pictures taken, and that still shows up with some of the aged 2x2s - I think specifically of a picture taken in the dining hall at Shelter Valley Convention during its construction stage, in which the ones having their pic=tures taken were very sour-faced indeed. They didn't need to say a word because their facial expression spoke their minds very clearly.
So, at Pecan Grove, the first I have seen to continue open sharing after knowing they had an outside audience continued using full names - the first name only has happened since I last saw their blogs with Ken's reports. I suspect that the first name only has been forced upon Ken by popular resistance to full names getting out of the 2x2 cocoon by those who he pictures and says anything about on publicly oen blogs.
Some workers a decade ago or a bit more were concentrating on the danger that 2x2ism "might" need to "go underground again" - when 2x2ism has always been underground especially after 1903 when they were causing violence in the streets of Ireland by being LOUDLY above ground. It has not only been the secret sect inside, it has always been a hidden sect outside. Any other way, 2x2ism doubtless would have collapsed decades ago.
Hope this helps - it was encouraging to see Ken bucking the trend by remaining so open even after he learned of the outside audience several years ago, but even Ken has to tow the line of popular 2x2 survival-fears.
