I'm talking about the new posters, like Kitten Whiskers, who started posting today (hope this works: http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/6/120817/1.ashx). And it seems like we're getting a few like this nearly every day. People who were raised JWs, really worry that they are doing the right thing in leaving, yet who have been made to feel not good enough by the WTS, who felt they never measured up, who struggled with it, but came to realize that what they'd been brought up to believe was just NOT the TRUTH.
The same stories are told over and over again, and they come from sincere, good people - not whiny, fault-finding apostates like the rest of us riffraff around here! This website shows that the WTS is losing folks like this in droves - 'cause we all know that probably not one in 50 who leaves ever comes here and posts. Or one in 100. But when they do, variations of the same story repeats itself.
I was thinking that, if I was still an active elder, or at Bethel, and was reading this, it would really get to me. I'd be thinking about how I could get this information to the GB, or somehow try to make a difference, and I would know it wouldn't be possible.
I think that's what made me leave a decade ago. Knowing those problems, because we sure had them back then as well, but knowing I would never really be able to make much of a difference for the better.
