The reason I ask is that my best friend all the time I was growing up was a boy about 5 years older than I was. His parents were at lot less strict than mine and as he was super brainy after he finished public school and sixth form he went off to one of the country's finest universities.
The only thing that bugs me now about this is that I know he was incredibly clever - how could he go to uni and still be a dub? Is that possible? Can you still get a great degree whilst ignoring everything you must learnm at uni that tells you the dubs have it very wrong? I believe he became a missionary.
Sadly our friendship ended - he wrote me shortly before I was disfellowshipped second time round that I shouldn't ever contact him again if I was stopping going to meetings again ....
I still miss him now and would love to ask him this, but I can't so I'm asking you guys?
