Good thing I don't need to go. I don't want to get hounded or, worse yet have some family thinking they are doing me a huge favor in claiming me as theirs. I can get all the information right here on this board, unbiased, and find out what exactly the reactions are going to be among other Witlesses.
I found out about it here on this board toward the end of July. And only now are the people in the congregations actually going through it. Six weeks ahead! I found out 6 weeks ahead, as an apostate who is no longer going to any meetings, of those who are going through all the meetings every week. Talk about getting spiritual poison before it gets released, and then waiting to see what happens when the poison is released instead of having to actually make the adjustments.
And I will continue using other sources for religious enlightenment. This board and the apostate Web sites are my primary source of religious enlightenment, and I feel they do a better job than any church (and especially any Kingdumb Hell). Occasionally I will peek at the official Web site, but only to see if there is anything else I can poke fun of and tear apart. I believe that all one needs is a Bible and fully integrated honesty to become spiritually enlightened--and then you will develop your own conclusions.
