    Black Swan,

    That was a very well thought out, mild tempered, well-reasoned letter. Of course it fell on deaf ears, but that's how "honesty" is dealt w/ in the organization. I thought you made some excellent points and I printed out a copy and saved it for future reference. Thanks for sharing.

    Love it all... wanted particularly to reply to this: These last few months have been difficult. My family has been repeatedly requesting answers from me as to why I’m no longer attending meetings. At times, these conversations became fairly heated. I have been pushed to do something that I sincerely did not want to do....It was then that I realized that they weren’t going to let this go and the time had come to take care of matters. Sad and crazy how they push you away and go for blood. I'm sure that deep inside they know that it's wrong and that's why it's hurting them, but they do it anyway; our own family betray and hurt us. My folks (I'm 'no longer a JW' - I was disfellowshipped but I wasn't there for the announcement so I didn't hear it's format, not that it matters - shunning is shunning...) sorry... my family now want to know how much of an effort I'm making to go back, and when I eventually tell them 'none', I'll never hear from them again. I have no idea why they want to create their own persecution; maybe the pain and confusion validates the 'last days' claims. Anyway, much respect to you!
