Hi everybody. I have been out since 1998 and have rarely seen another JW since. I didn't leave because i found anything wrong, i just didn't want to live the life anymore. I still defended the witnesses at times. I still believed it was the 'truth' and that they were the one true religion.
Now, well i aint so sure! Ok, after looking at this forum for a few days and not being able to sleep i am well aware of a lot of the stuff from the 70s and 80s. You know, Ray Franz's books, chronolgy shifting, definition of 'generation' changes (have they made more changes since i left?) , Malawi and mexico etc. Not to mention child abuse etc and individuals horror stories about the organization.
What i want to know is what about the 1990s and 2000s? Surely an organization as colosal as the WTBS has more skeletons coming to the surface? or have they cleaned up their house? Perhaps they have tightened up the sphincter and no crap gets out anymore?. I want current stuff as i am going to try and get my teenage kids to not be 4th generation robots. The G/B is right... dont say anything about mistakes and sooner or later they'll all forget. The new generation has no idea about last century... ancient history to them.
The only thing i have found so far is about them being NGO with the U.N till the early 2000s.
What have you got? What do you know?
