Yep, that's right!!
I called my mother tonight to say a friendly hello. What did I get?
You guessed it. A good old fashioned preaching to.
"Isn't it good how the WTBTS have warned us how the world would get?"
"Won't it be good when what happened in NY happens all over the world and gets rid of all the wicked ones?"
I lost it....I really lost it!!
I told my mother about Crisis of Conscience. She said "Raymond Franz? Never heard of him!" "He was never a member of the Governing Body"
"You had better get your facts right from your apostate sites before you start sprouting off about JW's"
I told my mother that WOL was not a so-called apostate site.
She said "Yes it is, they all are. No real JW would be seen on the internet discussing the "truth"."
I told her to look it up for herself.....she said "I really can no longer speak to you".
Well, considering the fact that I have been shunned more times than I can remember this is no surprise to me.
But I carried on......I brought up not wanting to live forever with a God that would enjoy murder on such a grand scale.
My mother turned her colors from normal to flaming red.......I became the despised one tonight. Not just shunned, but utterly despised.....and I felt every barb she threw.
To end it, I said to her that I no longer wish to associate with any of my family (I am adopted) until they were no longer JW's.
Many of you may remember my post a while back where I considered saying nothing to them due to their age........well when I heard the utter contempt in my mother's voice.....age no longer mattered.
I went down on my terms and fighting. I will never see or speak to them again. And for the first time......it's ok!
Ana feeling free...........
I will defend, to your death, my right to my opinion.
