I didn't mean to attack anyone of you and certainly not to be attacked by anyone either. I just voiced what I've heard and seen, and my perception so far as far as cursing and living inmoral lifes is due to some of your own personal stories. If you don't agree with the JW's why curse them, call them dumb, etc. etc.?
Hey, you’re entitled to your say and your opinion.
Part of being on a message board, forum etc is that once you post your opinion, others will have something to say about it. You came to a board, where many people have been hurt. Many have lost families. Many have literally lost loved ones to the blood policy, to the former organ transplant policy and many are hurt because they feel they were lied to. There is a lot of hurt that is being felt by people around here.
The reason why sometimes, the jw’s get the brunt of the anger, is because, well, the reason why so many lives have been destroyed, has been because of the jw organization.
Perhaps rather then feeling attacked, you could Try to look beyond the anger, and look at the actual experiences of many on this board and put yourself in the actual shoes of a mother who lost her son and her grandchildren. Put yourself in the shoes of a person who lived their entire life for the org only to find out later in life, that the organization they were supporting has lied to them
Think of it like this:
Would you be ok with your spouse or closest friend, lying to you, making unnecessary demands on your time and health? No. In fact, I’ll bet that you didn’t know, that the Organization actually fit’s the profile of an emotional abusive person.
I really hope that you stick around and just keep reading the experiences of people. Think how you would react if one day you woke up, and simply for wanting to know the whole truth of the matter, you lost every person in your life. You haven’t committed adultery, you haven’t used drugs, heck you don’t even swear…
Simply for wanting to know the whole truth and coming to a different conclusion then the one you had before, you have just lost your mom, your dad, your siblings, your best friend, your kids and maybe even your spouse. They won’t even acknowledge your existence.
How do you deal with that? If you have a better answer, please, please share it with us. I’d really like to know. No sarcasm intended.
