Do you think maybe they can't help but look down on the rest of us who were stupid enough to actually choose to become Witnesses? Is their a hierachy among apostates - between those who were brought up Witnesses and those who converted to the Witnesses?
I must admit, I have a lot of ambivalence towards "those stupid ones" who continue to choose to stay, as adults, knowing it's full of deceit and corruption.
Yet, I must say too, that over the years my attitude has mellowed over this, as I continue to try and be a support network rather than a militant. Not to say, at all, that militant apostates aren't appreciated. They are!
This organization's members and ex-members has many dynamics.
I will conclude by saying that one dynamic that is above all others, is that you can't KNOW what it was like as a child unless you lived it.
Living this life as a child is a far different dynamic than living it as a consenting adult.
The damage is far greater.
