I just can't win! About a year ago when I began to have doubts I talked to one of my old friends about what I was feeling. Her and her husband actually did a ton of research and left the organization quietly and quickly. I've occasionally talked to her here and there and never really thought much about it.
I receieved an email from my father today (who is an elder in another state) that said that my friends mom told him that I have been in contact with her and we have been talking trash about Jehovah's Witnesses. He said that they have been trying to get her mom to see "dirt" about the organization too.
He just wanted to give me a heads up that her mom had already gone to the elders in her area and told them about me. He said not to be shocked if it gets back to my congregation! At the end of his email he basically told me to shut up or I would be disfellowshiped for apostacy. He told me to just fall out of the truth and lead the debauched life I've wanted to live and leave Jehovah's people out of it. Thanks pops.
So now that I finally get some good advice and am going to try and lay low and support my wife, I'm going to have to deal with this! I feel sick.
