I was baptized in 1992 at Plant City, Florida. After I was baptized I met up with my JW friend who was an Elder's son. He was given the privilege to guard a door. He needed to use the restroom, and asked me to watch the door. I agreed, but this Elder in charge of security asked me if I was baptize. I informed him I was, and in fact got baptized today. This pious, righteous, and hand pick man of God, told me, "Oh well that's not long enough to have this privilege." That was the beginning of my awakening. Quite funny, the day I began to awake was at age 15 on my baptism.
I began wandering the assembly hall after that incident, and noted so much hypocrisy. One notable example of nepotism and elitism was the room where contributions were counted. Inside this room was the Elders counting the money, but also were the Elders' wives and children. I wasn't allowed in there, being the son an unbeliever. There were four and five years running around, mothers breast feeding, and a nice cliche of the social elites.
I wonder if this behavior still exist? Anyone still active know if these things still go on in the local Halls and Assemblies?
