My folks studied in the sixties but never were baptized. They enforced the no Xmas and holidays in general but stopped attending the meetings after about three years. My mom was baptized in 1990, Dad still isn't. We were not allowed to watch army movies and never had toy guns. They even upheld the NO BlOOD bullshit, even when my mom had life threatening surgrery.
I think it was harder to be half assed about it all than fully immersed. There was all the guilt without the benefit of being in the club. We had no association "in" or "out" of the congregation. This was truly worse!
I played HS football as a freshmen and was all leauge. Then I didn't go out as a sophmore because I was studying and didn't want to "compete". The coaches were all PE teachers and gave me F's in PE. So the next year I went out for football to get them off my back.
How about you? Any others raised in this wierdass limbo?
