I'm fascinated by such widespread use of the word Apostate in these threads. Has something happened with the term since I began ignoring JW dogma in the 80's ? It appears a weird turn was taken somewhere in the last 25 years.
Such liberal sprinkling of the word must mean one of several things: either the death grip of Brooklyn has tightened around followers necks by expanding what an Apostate is these days, OR many are simply overplaying your card by dousing this Most Unholy description into everything from watching R rated movies to (Jehovah forbid!) joining Facebook.
Whichever it is, this site is further proof (to me anyway) how screwed up being a JW really can be. The residue of your persecution is 2 inches thick.
An old bookmark for this network caught my eye and I clicked through, spending the last two hours just shaking my head, laughing, and posting. I had forgotten all about it. Well, it's been time well wasted this morning, with exception of finding an old mentor/friend with his amazing story of life as a J.W. in Beverly Hills. Nice surprise there.
Nothing has changed, has it? Still the most ridiculous, hand wringing, back stabbing, hyprocritical, self loathing, self serving, insecure, unrealistic, pompous, history challenged, closed, uptight, contradictory and dirty organization it ever was!
It's a trainwreck. I can't wait to return to view more carnage!
