    My newborn son's tiny, trusting face. I knew then I would NEVER refuse a life-saving blood transfusion should he ever need one.

    Don't know which website I first came across but these where the first two that I dared to check out:


    as well as the life story published online by Jay Walter, its was over at exjws.net but that doesn't seem to be working

    having a "worldly" person telling me that she practiced wicca. she wasnt scary like I'd thought all pagans were. 12 years later, we are still friends.

    Reading Genesis 1 with only a basic scientific background, and the same for the flood account.

    And when I began to examine doctrine, things fell apart even quicker.

    My baptism woke me up. The Father , Son & Org. did it. I went down under the water screaming in my mind, "No, forgive me Jehovah". I attended meetings for a year & a half after that. I listened and learned a lot I had missed in my studies. Stopped attending when I had surgery. I wasn't missed. My family excepted my excuses.

    UN scandel, pedophile scandelmade me think that there was something wrong with GB but the book Thy Kingdom Come opened my eyes to the entire deciet of WTS and since knowing it's history and the scam they're running I can't believe I followed their advise not to look at "apostate" sites! Bloody bastards they're the biggest fraud out there!

    Trying to reconcile what the Bible was actually telling me, with what the Watchtower was telling me.

    Bloody bastards they're the biggest fraud out there!

    So correct and the reason that is because they are trying to support and maintain their livelihood, if you stop and think about it, those men

    that are on the GB have nowhere else to go, the organization is paying for the living conditions, their health and dental care, the cars they use ,

    the cloths on their backs, the food that they eat.

    Where else could these 60, 70 , 80 year old men go if there wasn't the WTS to support them.

    They don't have a vast amount of money saved up in a retirement fund that they could jump over too if they even wanted to.

    I've brought this up before that there are men that very much need the organization to survive and lets not forget the stature that they have

    also achieved within the organization. Those men are standing up top of a world wide billion dollar corperation and for most part they're poorly

    educated. Where in the world but a religion could men obtain that much power and stature without even a high school diploma ?

    The failure of the annointed to die off in an orderly fashion. I kept watching that special part of the 'Generation' partake without any significant fall in the number for a couple of decades. The 1995 change in the doctrinal position on the generation made me investigate more closely - eventually.

    1. The fact that my jw husband was permitted to abuse me in that he continued and worsened, but ws never df'd, yet I lacked faith in Jehovah when I had the nerve to complain.

    2. A young sister was df'd when her rapist confessed to the elders. She was too embarrassed to tell the elders and thought it better to avoid the rapist and try to forget that her virginity was

    taken by force. He was privately reproved.
