i posted a thread a bit earlier about our impending judicial committee/Dfing for celebrating "false religious holidays". they have seen decor on the outside of our house, so i guess that is their "evidence" that we engage in false religion now! ok, whatever!
my husband and i have talked and are serious about taking legal action against the JWs if they try to DF us against our will. after all, they truly are stealing our first amendment rights of freedom of religion. (no we will never be JWs again, but we want to maintain our "status" as not DFed for the few remaining JW contacts we have...pls dont judge us there...most of you can understand it's complicated!).
so i'm just wondering if anyone has ever sued the WT on this basis....and what the outcome was. i am in need of some real legal advice because i am not messing around here....this is wrong and i am not afraid to call them out on it. we are going to consult an attorney on this, but...
seriously how can they get away with this BS? unwarranted harassment and threats surely don't fit in with our guaranteed US constitutional rights???? and the biggest thing is...how can they do this when the "decision" (hahaha yeah right) to get baptized was made under pressure when my husband was a minor (16) and i was barely 18?
any advice is welcome and appreciated....posting here or messaging me is great too. i would love to hear any and all stories from those who have taken this to court, and what the outcome was. And i'd love to hear any strategies that helped you along the way.
thanks for reading and happy holidays! (i don't care what it costs me....i love saying that!)
