A few months before my 18th B-day, I was with a group of "worldly" friends, and a pretty major act of vandalism occured involving a Sherrif's Patrol Car. I was arrested for my involvement (even though I did not participate directly in the act). It got a lot of news press. I was called into a judicial meeting as soon as I got out of jail. I was told that I had brought reproach on Jehovah's Name and His Organization and was quickly DF'd. Another reason cited for my dismissal was, and I'm not kidding here, the fact that someone had observed me listening to The Doors. I fessed up to this apparently serious transgression, but was amazed at some of the things that my supposed "friends" and "brothers" had accused me of that were completely false. One person said that he had seen me beat up my mom and sister (rediculous). Someone else said that there was a videotape circulating that featured me and my girlfriend having sex. (sadly, I was still a virgin at 18). Another one said that I was experimenting with the occult. When I found out that all these people were saying all of these crazy things about me, I told them that they could keep their "Organization". Best thing that ever could have happened to me.
