I’m sure this has been mentioned many times on this site but I wanted to express my personal feelings of gratitude to Paul at jwfacts.com. Paul, your site changed my life. Even though I discovered it when I was already disfellowshipped and really didn’t have the intention of going back, I was still a fierce JW apologist. Needless to say, this caused me to be at war with myself and I was grappling with those two sides of my brain. It was roughly a year ago that I stumbled across your site and light bulbs started clicking and flashing all over me.
I have one sister along with my mother still pounding away at the JW salt mines so they never talk to me but my other sister has been out for almost 30 years (faded) and even she had never researched the destructive history of the witnesses. It was one evening (before finding your site) that I happened to mention that the rule against organ donation had changed (way back) – she was shocked; I guess my mom didn't feel the need to fill her in on that, and that led to me updating her in on other changes in doctrine which led to me finding your site. We spent a couple of afternoons reading all of your research. It was such an eye opener and I find myself referring back there frequently.
Paul, thank you so much for all of the hard work that went into compiling that information. It must not have been easy and I take my hat off to you for caring enough about the rest of us to put it all together. It’s truly a labor of love.
If there are any newbies or fence-sitters out there who haven’t yet found this site please look it up and be amazed.
