**Frustration** I've mentioned my cousin on here before - he is disfellowshipped for wrong doing (been out for a year now) and he's having a good old time, smoking, drinking, doing his thang. HOWEVER he still believes that the JWs have the truth.
I have tried the tatical approach, asked "leading" questions, asked him to do a bit of research, shown him this site. Then I resorted to full out attack on their beliefs. NOW I just show pure intolerance for this faith. I've told him about the UN thing, the pedophilia, the lies, the changes, e v e r y t h i n g!!
He looks at me with his blinkers on and still believes it's the truth. The only thing he asks "" You really are over the faith then Lou "" my reply today was "Hell yes, that faith makes me sick, if I had a choice of going back or slitting my throat and bleeding to death I'd choose the latter" (I dragged my nailfile across my throat and hung my head for dramatical illustration) ................... and nothing, he shakes his head like I'm a lost lil goat.
I ask myself why he doesn't see this organisation for what it is, why he can't see the manipulation. If only he would do some research while he was out and free to do it. The boy wants to go back to the faith and soon.
It's so so so very frustrating and sometimes I just have to vent.
