It keeps on getting worse…
Have you seen the JW convention/assembly hall land layout that was approved by the GB, built by the WTS in 1990 & dedicated in 1991, in Denmark?
Look at it in Google Maps with satellite images on, rotate it 90° counterclockwise!

Here’s an drone view:
I have become a laughingstock to all the peoples, the theme of their song all day long.
2 Thess 2:9-10
But the lawless one’s presence is by the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and wonders 10 and every unrighteous deception for those who are perishing, as a retribution because they did not accept the love of the truth in order that they might be saved.”
Therefore, when you catch sight of THE DISGUSTING THING that CAUSES DESOLATION, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, STANDING IN A HOLY PLACE (let the reader use DISCERNMENT), 16 then let those in Ju·deʹa begin fleeing to the mountains.
Here’s the quote from the 1993 yearbook:
“Convention Grounds for the Whole Country
With the branch office completed, and with two Assembly Halls to care for circuit assemblies, the question came up: Why not build a district convention complex for the whole country? Why not use property near the Assembly Hall at Silkeborg for such a facility, since it is close to the country’s geographic center?
The project was put to the Governing Body, who approved it. The municipality of Silkeborg assigned a plot of land of almost 40 acres [16 ha], including a large, protected area of great natural beauty less than a mile [about a kilometer] from the Assembly Hall. Excavation started on July 1, 1990. And some job it was! For the first three months an average of 1,500 tons of soil was moved every day—a hundred fully loaded trucks! But a brother with experience in soil work reassured everyone: “I have been moving soil for 30 years, and the earth is still round.”
The actual auditorium is a partly covered amphitheater in which no one will be sitting more than 230 feet [70 m] from the speaker. It has room for 3,500, and in the nearby Assembly Hall, an additional 900 can follow the program via closed-circuit television. The site has ideal sound conditions, good parking and first aid facilities, a literature counter, and rest rooms. The grounds include a camping area where about a thousand brothers and sisters can sleep in trailers or tents.
On June 1, 1991, came the dedication. Lloyd Barry of the Governing Body delivered a most faith-strengthening and encouraging dedication discourse. About 4,000 brothers and sisters attended the program at the convention site, and 700 followed it via telephone in the Assembly Hall at Herlufmagle. The following week, all congregations showed a 75-minute video program summarizing the event. During that summer the new convention grounds were a wonderful setting for five “Lovers of Freedom” District Conventions”
