    This video was sent to me earlier today, and it really hit a nerve with me,,,,, I just couldn't stop applying it to the witness belief of DF and DA.

    I've known quite a few witness parents over the years who just left their kids "on the roadside" because they no longer

    wanted to be a part of this religion.

    Why is it that genuine human reaction/emotion is dropped when children no longer want to be a jw ?

    This father seems to be quite a guy, notice how he yells at the security/medical person near the end no doubt to leave his son alone !

    M I B,

    How can this cult have so much power over people?????? I was born into it in 1960 and when my daughter was dfs about 5-6years ago I stopped going, (saw all the hypocricy more than ever before). When she got re-instated she was very distant towards me, not speaking to me even for about a year, (because of he husband). We were very close and it breaks my heart, we talk, but not like before. How can a religon or rather cult hvae so much power, that it tears a family apart????????? I would always defend it. but now I will speak my mind and the truth........,.

    They would say, "This is what we do for the beatup people of this old system, directing them to the only hope, God's organization". Leaving family behind and gaining a new spiritual family, who are better than any old fleshly, worldly family! These are my true friends. But wait, if they get in trouble or leave the org, then I can drop them, hate them and forget them. Hot and cold! Turn it on and then in a matter of seconds change.
    Although, I have heard a prominent elder say in a public talk that noone can judge him on how he treats his family - worldly or otherwise - even saying, "Blood is thicker than water"!

    I guess that's great. I don't think I would have moved that injured leg and made it worse if it were me. Symbolism is important for some more than others.

    Diehard witness view: *sigh* If my son had listened to Jehovah he would not have entered competitive, nationalistic sports and ended up tearing his hamstring. He is reaping what he is sowing.
