It looks like the s**t has hit the fan with my friend Marion, and a lot sooner than we ecpected it to. Her jw son called her earlier today on what he said was an emergency, and he needed her at his house asap. She went around there straight away, as he has two young children and she thought maybe one of them had had an accident, and when she got there, her son was waiting, along with the po and another elder. There was no emergency, it was just a trick to let the elders get to her, a lie in other words.
She couldn't really say in all honesty that she was too busy to see them, so she had to talk. They asked her about the contents of the letter she sent them, and asked her what sort of doubts she had been having, as well as her admitting to her son that she has read Crisis of Conscience. She tried to be as vague as possible, and managed to escape after about 25 minutes of interrogation, but not before they had asked the big question - do you still believe this is jehovahs true organisation. She managed to be a bit evasive on that one, saying she wondered at times if it really is, and they left it at that when they realised she wasn't going to volunteer any more information. They told her that they will be in touch again if they feel the need to take further action. She asked what sort of action but they didn't elaborate, though it's not difficult to figure out what they might do. We both think a jc could be in the offing, and Trev agreed with that conclusion when I spoke to him just now.
Marion is here with me right now, and as Trev is away working in Belfast until Saturday, she is staying here for the night. She has asked me to thank you all for your support, I think she's going to need a lot more of it in the coming weeks. She knows she can rely on Trev and myself of course. One thing neither the elders or her son will be able to do, no matter what threats they make, is force her back to the meetings. She knows the truth about the wts now, and is determined to stay strong. Please keep her in your thoughts.
