  "Fascism or Freedom" Judge Rutherford October 2, 1938

  The first thing he says on it is that Jesus was resurrected exactly 1935 years
ago, which in 1938 would have been 3 AD.  That's usually put around 33 AD.
(I'm guessing it's his version of Jesus' birth on Earth.)

with Catholic and Protestant (anything Christian and non-Rutherford) clergy of
Rutherford's time as Satanic, and characterizes all of both groups as fascists
who have intended to keep people from learning God's truth (Jesus' and Ruther-
