According to my info, GC talks have to be submitted months before delivery because they have to go through correlation and translation and all that.
They're not waiting till Thursday because they need to edit the talks. That would mean they'd have to edit the dozens of translations as well and coordinate the effort in only 4 days. And that's after "they" agree on what needs to be edited.
It's more likely that they need the extra time to test the IT infrastructure behind putting all that drivel online.
There will be no editing. It's not like Packer said anything new.
"You find as you look around the world that every single bit of progress in humane feeling, every improvement in the criminal law, every step toward the diminution of war, every step toward better treatment of the colored races, or every mitigation of slavery, every moral progress that there has been in the world, has been consistently opposed by the organized churches of the world" (Bertrand Russell, Why I am not a Christian).
