In my social psychology class today we were talking about cults. The professor mentioned her neighbor was an ex-JW and the woman swears it's a cult but that she wasn't so sure if it was or not. Throughout her lecture I took down all the points on cults and described under it in detail why JWs meet each one. After class I talked to her briefly about my experiences and gave her the sheet I had made along with some of the website addresses (silent lambs, JWD, freeminds). I'm going by her office to talk to her more abou it later this week.
It just made me laugh to think that as a shy timid JW I would have been hard pressed to speak up and defend the organization, and have felt badly about it as a result; however, as an ex-JW I jumped in with both feet on the subject.
