Qmi, yeah I could hardly believe how open minded people are at church. It's funny how witnesses are so terrified of losing their 'unity' if people have different viewpoints...when there are so many different viewpoints inside my mainline Protestant church whose history goes back hundreds of years. It was actually shocking to me to see how people believe differently about evolution, gay preachers and weddings, types of music, women preachers..and we get along really well despite that!
im really sorry you lost your family even when trying not to :(. It sounds like you lost everyone but your husband. this religion sucks.
