Me and a friend were interested in making a video on Jehovah's Witnesses. We are looking for support and participants. We are building a script and are willing to share what we got so far. I wasnt sure what the rules were for posting contact info here.
Making a JW video
As far as I know there is no prohibition against posting your own contact information, but there are some very practical consqequences to that decision that you might want to consider beforehand. It isn't usually recommended, on the forum, because many here are in hiding (anonimity) from elder bodies who would like to disfellowship them and/or cause problems with their families.
Can I be in your movie?
I was once a JW:
No shitting you, this is the advertisement I got when she posted the Hitler picture.
Thanks for the reminder Auldsoul. I have never really kept a low-profile since I was disfellowshipped 8 years ago. The witnesses know my friends and how to keep tabs on me if they so desire. I could really care less to be honest as long as they dont harrass me directly.
Just to throw out some questions here i want to use on my video..
In you personal opinion.. why do people join the watchtower? Leave the watchtower? and in some circumstances return. I realize there are the reasons that are given at face value but what are the REAL REASONS? Is it so much theology as it is emotional attachments? ie leaving because your spouse or family member you love has left or lost faith.
Also... does anyone know any good site with JW membership statistics over the years right back to the begining? (That also includes disfellowhipping figures). I could only find current figures and the figures surrounding 1975.
If you're interested in the blood issue, I am willing to be interviewed about that. My contact info is in my profile here.
I have an unusual story to tell about that.
Thank you 'mysterious' for those links. I posted on blogspot:
