Flipper, use the green NWT if you must!
Would You Ever Go Back To The Kingdom Hall?
Here ya go, Mary!
I recently took my Dad to a funeral/memorial (whatever the frick they call it... more like a sly peddle for the cult) at a KH.
I felt creepy going in. My Dad seemed genuinely happy to see the local pedophile. At least that answered one of my questions.
The guy giving the talk was the deceased's grandson. Sounded like a slimey, snake-oil salesman. Once the 'talk' was over, I made a bee-line for the door.
I thank the goddesses it was under an hour. Blech!
Only because I am such a good friend to a couple good ex-JW friends. Went to a couple funerals with my ex-JW friends for support. I felt like a 'spy' in a God-forsaken land. I have been out since mid-'80s so I actually felt sorry for most of them. Could spot the elders easily as they actually looked 'stiff-necked' to me.
Only for the inlaws funerals. My parents never wanted a KHall funeral which is a relief.
Never !!!!!!!!!!! Ever!!!!!!!!!! No NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not sure if I could ever embrace religion again, period. Can you unlearn something you've learned? It's like asking if you could go back to being a child again. Some would if they COULD. But you can't, so it's all just an intellectual exercise at this point. Maybe that's the answer. I would. IF I COULD, but I can't. So I won't.
no... NO... NO ...NO... and no.
I passed a KH today on my work route, often pass it. Look at it bemusedly. See the dubs in FS at QT (local convenience store) but rarely actually knocking on a door. Have no desire to interact with them, even if I know them.
an elderly sister I pioneered with and was very close to died a couple of years ago. Some called her "Diamond Lil"... but even her funeral I would not go to.
My JW mom already said she does not want a funeral, JW or otherwise. If she did, I would not go. I would go to the gravesite and conduct my own service, sans dubs.
Ironically, last week my fiancee's coworker had a grandparent that died. I knew her one grandma was a JWm but did not put it together until right before we left for the funeral home. I went on the internet to look up the directions to the funeral home, found the grandfather's obit... I'll be damned... I knew him (Dennis), turns out, I knew tons of people and my fiancee only knew her co-worker. Ran into an elder in that same KH (Kevin), Ran into the same elder a few days at the cemetery he manages at a graveside service for one of my fiancee's best friend's mother..... My fiancee was not amused. LOL. damn witnesses everywhere... she wanted to tell the elder her fiancee is an apostate.
Snakes (Rich )
