Thanks for responding AIW.
There are many here with more experience in this organization than I have.
I am about 20 years older than you. You gave one example of a DFing but not reality based from previous years. You missed the ugly history of the 70's. I was df'd at 16 and then it had to be reversed...probably one of the first few in the history of this organization. It went all the way to the top.
The trail of destruction from the Society's mistakes exists to this day.
Much more ugly history is being made with the pedophile problem and changes with acceptance of blood fractions, changes with dates after absolute direction, that the end was coming in 1975, and every other year predicted before and after that date.
The point being....many lives have been destroyed by disfellowshipping, changes in policies, or absolute lies, predictions and debacles denied. You are of another generation, or should I say another overlapping generation that is clueless to the Society's past and have bought into "this generation will by no means pass away.".......please start a retirement fund, you will need it.
Open your eyes and recognize propaganda when it is fed to you.
