    Leaving Jehovah's Witnesses can be a very rough experience, and
    sometimes you find yourself becoming familiar with the language of
    recovery. Those 12 steps can change your life, and there are much
    worse places that one can find oneself than in the dingy basements and
    under the fluorescent lights of a local support group.

    We were thinking of the eighth and ninth steps recently...

    8.) Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to
    make amends to them all.
    9.) Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when
    to do so would injure them or others.

    ...and they inspired us to reach out in a unique way to all of those
    people who had us knocking on their doors to try to push our beliefs.
    Please see the video "I am sorry that I knocked"

    A lot of people have been very supportive of the idea of apologizing
    themselves in this way. The outline I developed for myself started
    like this:

    1. an apology to all the people I bothered
    2. thanks to the vast majority of people who treated me civilly
    3. what I was taught to think of worldly people (why I was there)
    4. what worldly people taught *me* (that religion is something they
    adopted to *their* needs), e.g., "I am Catholic, but I have my own
    5. what I have since come to know about being a jw
    6. implore them not to let friends/family become jw's
    7. sorry I bothered you -- thanks for the patience and have a great life!

    It is your eighth step, though, so express yourself however you want.
    There may be other issues you want to mention. But please do express
    yourself with a text or video reply on YouTube. The more voices, the
    more chance we have to make a difference.

    boy i could think of all kinds of things you could do with this stuff.

    not to mention nifty and so NOW.

    stylish, too!

    anyone want to do their own apologies on youtube?

    we can rock the news next to Scientology, who is undergoing their most massive attack ever on youtube, and are not likely to recover face, at least for Miscavige.

    A very good idea and an interesting video.

    This would be an effective way of getting the message out in the media.

    I had this idea a while a go. I thought it could be called something like, "" where people talk about how they are happy and have a good support network with out the JW's.

    Two things about these U2 videos done by amateurs. You really have to appreciate

    they are heartfelt and peoples sense that intend to believe it more than a printed page. In other words testimonies are very powerful colts obviously use that to their advantage

    they are cathartic, and people watching experience a taste of the same catharsis and wanted for themselves and thus prompting the listener to seek what the person in the video is offering

    if humor is used, as in the case of recent Scientology exposé is done by a group called ANON, and the humor is not angry sarcasm or personal attacks, which are traditionally the tools of the cults, and hopefully not those trying to expose them. A leveling ground is created, all of the façades, the Emperor's new clothes that people are wearing in positions of power are suddenly seen as having no more power than that of the average peon. Suddenly, the most powerful are without clothes, and the commoners see that the power person is embarrassed, and wrenches the curtain back in front of the stage so that the façade may continue unabated. Yet HIS DOOM IS SEALED. His primal fear turns to white rage, and the careless poison that will destroy him in the end. For all charismata is gone now, all is left is an embarrassing shell of a man. People sniff and walk by.

    sorry about spelling as I am using Dragon NaturallySpeaking, because I have a stupid cast on my hand and sometimes the sentences come out pretty funny and was spelled wrong and I don't catch them.

    because I have a stupid cast on my hand and sometimes the sentences come out pretty funny

    So what did I miss why the cast. Who did you "bash" ??????

  • Dogpatch

    oh sheesh, mouthy asks what it was. This will never come out

    to put trends contracture

    okay trigon dupe the trends contracture. Okay, that shows you how foolish the software can be. Anyway, it's something like carpal tunnel and had surgery on my left on Hutus's bad because I'm left-handed, and all I can do is whack somebody

  • mouthy

    Poor darling I it better

    Okay, that shows you how foolish the software can be. A poor workman always blames his tools
