To all JWD posters that I have felt go overboard with your bitterness toward the borg! See below a copy of part of my letter to my son (he posts on here when he gets chance to). I now fully understand your anger and your desire to try and get JW's out of this blood guilty cult. Please accept my apologies! Many of you are very informative on here and I appreciate all your input, keep up the good work!
....Anyhow aside from that, you may have received the email (sent it to your Yahoo address) that I got from ***, could you open the attachment on the Blood Issue? this was a chapter from Ray Franz’s book, not sure which one. Well I the thing is last night I garbled a prayer out, very garbled because I don’t know who I am praying to any more, if anyone. One thing I asked was if it is possible to find the ‘truth’ and could JW’s have any element of it. I haven’t read much of that email yet, just up to paragraph 20, and I am absolutely gob smacked!! I didn’t think I was naïve, and now I cannot believe how naïve I have been Paul. I have blindly followed that organisation and trusted them. You may say it shouldn’t be such a shock, and up till now I haven’t felt too shocked by anything I have learned, and as you know I have felt the folk on the JWD site go overboard in their bitterness, but now I fully understand it!!!! Yet when I read that article it was so bloody (‘scuse the pun) obvious! If they accept that it is permissible to use certain components of blood why did I never question how those components were taken from the blood? And you know what is the worst possible thing? I would have blindly gone along with this if any of you, as children, had needed to have blood!!
I am glad you never did, but sorry too for those that have refused blood for the wrong reasons.
All I can say to you and to your brothers and sister is that I am so, so, so, sorry. And I am happy now that at least the four of us have left it. It has been quite a step forward to at last say that I am happy to have left because up till now I wasn’t truly sure how I felt. This also now, makes me feel like taking the bull by the horns and printing the article off and sending it to your dad and ****** if it means that they will never talk to me again, at least I will feel that I have tried to set them straight in something. How would I feel if anything happened to them and they refused blood and lost their lives as a result if I hadn’t at least tried to show them this article? The organisation harps on a lot about ‘blood guilt’ but they have so much of it hanging over them…..
