I can only agree with you there, Samuel.
I've been a fader for almost twelve years now. Nobody in the cong has ever asked me why. Thou I heard from a friend that when my name was mentioned, the "friends" said that I was protected. What ever that means.
I came into the "truth" only fiftheen years old. 1975. A woman in my neighborhood took me under her wings. All in good meaning, I suppose.
What made me leave? I could'nt stand why Jehova should be such a bloodthursty God, wanting to destroy almost all human beeings in the world. It was never my understanding of a loving God.
But i took many years for me to dare leave. Of course, there were other issues as well.
I've been a lurker on this forum since nov- 06. Did not know any of the chocking stuff about JW before that. Scandals, UN, different learning etc.
At that time it all came over me like a ton of bricks. Could not stop reading on the net. I think I've read it all, come to think of it.
Then I got in contact with an apostate forum in Denmark, met a friend, somewhat like my own situation, and it went on and on..
So, here I am. Bare with me, english is not my native language, being a norwegian.
I will write more soon.
