Many of us don't see the legal ramifications of this info., or even the importance of changing the blood doctrine. 915 people died in Jonestown. It's highly likely that as many, many of them children die PER YEAR as a result of this policy.
Now, many have also lost heart about other cases, because there has'nt been much media attention lately, plus there was a post, or a message from bethel that stated that the WTS won all the child molestation cases. MOST of them are STILL ONGOING!!!! These things take YEARS.
I know many of you are tired, hurt, and emotionally and spiritually scarred, and we would ALL like instant gratification. However, the people I have helped get out of the WTS did'nt get out from me dropping all the info. at once on them. They did'nt believe what I said half the time.
I helped them out from dropping many small hints over YEARS!!! Eventually, some of them grew those seeds themselves. The seeds of beautiful doubt and the promise of actual facts. It takes awhile, and it probably did for most of us too... My doubts did'nt pop at once and go "This is all crap!!!" Even after I was basically out, the deprogramming process took a loooong time. It's still happening, not as traumatically, and now it's fun to root out the fallacies that happen in my head.
Give it time. And also, before you talk negatively about someone else's efforts, ask yourself what are YOU doing to help. Get off the couch and write a letter. Go evil slaving, put silentlambs brochures in the mags at the laundromat. Go help someone in need.
Speaking of helping someone in need, I think the one thing that pulled many of us out was COMPASSION!!! As a kid, It KILLED me to think of all of the others who were'nt JW's all getting killed. And later, it did the same for me to see how the less fortunate, widows, orphans, children, poor people were treated in an org. that was supposed to love equally, fully and unconditionally. It was compassion for your fellow man that compelled many of you to go door to door and save others. And many of you were chided by the less compasionate in the cong. for helping those less fortunate, or worldly. Don't let the harm and emotional scars from the org. kill that. Let's USE that compassion, that patience, those inate abilities to HELP others, who are as we once were.
I love all of you, Sam.
