I'm visiting family (In another country) right now and I have to pretend to be in. However, I obviously cannot compete with their uberdub-ism without gagging. So I just tag along to the meetings, saunter into FS and tune out during the family study... don't ask how!
I did however rock the boat with mum a couple of nights ago. I mentioned certain things about the fact that the cong may protect pedophiles, that we don't know really where all the money we put in the contribution box goes, and that this could be a man directed organization. She started to freak out!! And I'm not saying freaking out in a way that she's shocked at my insinuations and going to research them, but shocked those things could come out of my mouth.
She already knows I'm not as "zealous" as I used to be and with zero commenting at the meetings she and dad suspect there's something up with me. However, the other night I realized that anything I say to her at this moment is not going to make her see light. She will only hurt that I might be turning away from the "Truth" and talk WT to me endlessly till I turn back ot being the old uber-JW that I was.So what IS the point in hurting a family u see for a couple of weeks twice a year when all they do is worry about you year round?
I've decided to keep my mouth shut and pretend for hte rest of the time I'm here.
