    as i said, the rand cam isn't 100% proven as far as i'm concerned. if it is true, it is the same watchtower society we are all talking aobut.

    as for the u.n. thing, there are numerous threads, ones even active, that discusses this.

    keep me posted man.

    It's all good BigD. We have brought it to a peaceful conclusion. All i wanted to do is to open his eyes to the freedom we have a right to. He has been suffering for a long time , and I will help him with his life. That everyone deserves.

  • bigdreaux

    i couldn't agree with you more man.

    BigD I think they put thier love for you over anything the WT$ says. I think it's great.

    My mom was like that for a long time (almost 20 years) then all of a sudden Boom the shunning began out of nowhere. I'm not saying that will happen in your case, I'm just saying.


  • WT=watchtrouble

    Not all parents shun.

    I am thankful that my olds don't and will never shun me. We are too close for the borg to separate us.

    My olds always encouraged me to do the best I could and also promoted an education. Mind you, they haven't always been dubs, I was only about 8 or 9 years old when they got involved with the cult.

    So yeah I think that not everyone follows the shunning thing. As always a coldie for you

    Big D- Mr. Flipper here. From what you said, it seems to me that your mom and dad love you a lot and care about you, I think they were being honest in disagreeing with how Missannas family treats you guys. I think your parents, just like my witness parents do, choose not to discuss your views with you for the sake of family peace, because they don't want it to be an issue between them and you. So it's easier for them to just let it be, than have any confrontational discussion about it. My parents are exactly like that too. So, that's my take, for what it's worth. If you value the peace in your relationship with your mom and dad, I'd let sleeping dogs lie, so to speak.

    I have had discussions with my mom about the child molestation settlements and my disagreements on the witnesses views on getting a college education, but she is a pretty cool open minded woman, even though she is a witness. You, personally just have to assess your parents personalities and see how much they can handle talking about your differences with their religion. Only you know them well enough to discern that. Good luck bro, Peace out, Mr. Flipper
