I've been df'd for 21 years, and other than the heartbreak of my mom shunning me and the sad stories I read here, I NEVER thought the dirty rat bastard WB&TS could otherwise effect my life. Well, I was WRONG! My dear stepdaughter recently learned that her children's paternal grandfather has parents and siblings who are jws, some of whom were at my stepdaughter's baby shower this past Saturday. I've related to my stepdaughter how horrifying the jw take on Armageddon is on children and also that they do not alert congregants when there is a child molester in their midst.
Although there hasn't been much contact with that side of the family, I'm worried that it may start. I've begged my stepdaughter to never leave the kids alone with a jw. She reasons that if the father of her children didn't know that his grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins were jws, that they mustn't be freakish enough about it to witness to the kids or try to drag them off to meetings where they could possibly be exposed to pedophiles. My answer to her was, "Well, I hope you don't learn a lesson about them through your kids' hard won experience."
Should I say or do anything else? I'm thinking about speaking with their father, who absolutely hates organized religion and thinks the Bible is bullshit. What do you think? Should I speak to him or keep my mouth shut? Am I over reacting?
