I am SO glad to be out of this cult! I cannot believe they have the nerve to say the things they do. "Family oriented" and "pro-education"??? I knew 3 JW's who had a college degree out of hundreds. Care for the family? My wife left me because I objected to the WT's handling of my daughter's rape at the age of nine. Pro-education? I had three years toward a teaching degree and when I became a JW and wanted to go back after a 5 year break to finish the degree, they told me I wouldn't have any privileges or would be pleasing Jehovah if I did. So I didn't, and my wife bitterly resented having to work also all those years because I couldn't get a "real" job. Now she's gone, along with my daughter, and I'm the biggest apostate in two states.
Sunnygal, you smell a twist coming. I smell something else. I hope I don't step in it.
Elsewhere, I loved your point about "technically accurate but misleading". I wonder who invented THAT concept??!! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Virgochik, I saw the same thing in every congregation I ever visited. Hey, WT, can you spell "hypocrisy"??
Fullofdoubtnow, they will not only mention the donation arrangement, but there will be those tall cardboard boxes at every entrance.
Juni, I feel like puking as well. I better not eat today.
Finally, to Danny: Thanks again for all your hard work. You probably don't remember me, but you emailed me some info years ago. I've read your story and I applaud your efforts. Let's all hope that Silent Lambs can get up and running again. Then I can continue my work.
