When you first heard for Raymond Victor Franz? When was it? And who told you about him?
In my case, one special pioneer, who still serves as a special pioneer, asked me litterally this:
"Did you know that even one member of the Governing Body was disfellowshipped? Did you know that it is possible?"
I said "No way!" Then he said me: "Yes! Research that, and you will find it!"
He obviously meant to research that on WT Library CD. But I couldn't find that there.
And that's how I started to use Internet. It was in public library. First thing I did was google: "disfellowship member of governing body of jehovah witnesses". I still remember that day. The first page I opened was Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Franz. I was reading that for about 15 seconds, and then closed it immediately! I rebuked myself for reading that. I closed browser, and went home. I couldn't believe I have already read it.
My thoughts after that were: "He is aposatate. He is evil. He hates my brothers. He hates me. He does bad things to my brothers." Also, I was pretty sure that he is the man who holds up the apostate signs before the assembly hall. I saw him there. I was sure. And he himself writes them. For sure. Eventhough he has never been in my country.
My next internet visit was few months after that. I wasn't on-line since then, because I was afraid of that bad evil man. I was afraid that he will come in pop-up window, so I didn't even try to look anything on-line.
That's my story. In my case, Ray was the first step in getting knowledge about anything, including the Governing Body and the Organization, without fear.
