They took my money!

    I am done with reaching out to people who spit in my face. It does nothing but reinforce hope in their mind that you are inwardly sorry for your bad decisions and will some day return to the 'truth'.

    Let them go for Pete's sake. They don't deserve you. Focus your attentions on those who actually do love and respect you. Take a friend to a nice dinner, someone who has stood by your side through difficulties and not been a turn-coat.

    The day I finally let my abusive ex-family go was one of the best days of my life.

    Dear Whatlite,

    I forgot to mention, NO!! You are not the only one with crazy family members!! My brother-in-law (a elder) had been told by his mother that her other son (my husband) and I had issues with 607, that lead to even more questions. He called and fired questions at my husband not allowing him to explain his findings. He told him until he changed his view to NEVER call him again. They live out of state. It has been about 6 months and he has been working close with our elders come to find out. He has never called again. The crazy thing is, he doesn't even know what our view point even is!! All he knows is we are questioning the "faithful slave"!! As of yet we are still awating the elders return to explain the 607 discrepancy. We are not disfellowshipped, but also have the "apostate" label. I was shunned twice yesterday. It is so.... madening!! Anyway, I just wanted to tell you, you are not alone!!

    I am surprised by the extremism of the JWs given the way they shun you for a reasonable doubt, in that way they would drive you away even if you didn't really intend to leave them.

    But they do want to have their pie and eat it to be on bad terms with you and derive benefit from your money.

    It seems that the UN thing is a sensitive issue with the JWs! When my wife wrote her elder father about the WTS affiliation with the UN a couple of years back,and expressed that she didn't feel that it the right thing to do,her father used that letter against her in a judicial committee meeting.The letter proved to be the necessary 2nd witness that the local elders needed to disfellowship her.Up to that point,they had the testimony of only one witness whom she had mentioned the UN thing to. With friends like that,who needs enemies!?

    A year back my wife's mother phoned her to request some fleece sheets that she makes. She offered to pay for them but my wife said to not worry about it. Since her parents live several hours away from us,we sent the sheets by mail. Three weeks went by and we hadn't received a thank you note or any indication that they had indeed received the parcel. It could have gotten lost in the postal system,as far as we knew. So,my wife phoned to see if they had received the parcel. Her dad answered the phone and affirmed that it did arrive. He did manage to squeeze out a meaningless thanks and that was the end of the conversation! But,on their own,neither my wife's father nor mother,were able to think of giving us a phonecall or thank you note just out of courtesy.

    My wife's aunt(not a JW) in Germany(sister to her mother) told my wife recently that the only time her sister ever calls her is when she needs something. Other than that,she never hears from her!

    You asked," Is my family the only crazies out there?" I don't think so! Seems to be a common trait of JWs,IMO.

    Lemme chose to send a card and enclose money as a gift, and now you're complaining because they accepted the gift?

    Perhaps shes complaining because they took her money without saying thank you.

    That is very rude of them.

    Send them another card saying you are worried that they didnt receive your money because you havent heard from them but it looks like the cheque has been cashed, and you were scared maybe someone stole it. Tell them if they didnt receive the money to let you know because you really wanted them to have a nice meal out on you, and you will send another cheque by recorded post.

    They probably donated half of it to the Watchmejigglemyrod Society.

    They are all nuts.

    Be glad you are out.
