When did this forum go apostate?

    @White Dove - you're probably using firefox. For some reason, the Best Of threads only work in Internet Explorer.

    Oh my. I am outta here.

    Let's face it, if you step away from the organization and open yourself up to information outside the society, you will leave. So, basically, Simon did not have a chance in hell of staying in.

    This is a bit of an awakening, as has been most of my time spent here. I now fear that statement is really true for almost anyone. I originally would never thought it could have applied to ME.

    I came here via Google when I was stumbled, disillusioned, disturbed, and seeking answers [outside of the WTS Index]. While my personal experiences had already opened my eyes to much, I am now like the proverbial "deer in the headlights".

    I realize there are "kooks" here on both sides of the aisle [no names]. There are a good share who need to up their dose on their Prozac or Depakote. But the majority in the middle seem to have gotten here just as I did -- from having the same concerns, disillusionments, injustices, and unanswered questions. Many seem to be like the story of how a Republican becomes a Democrat (liberal). They start out hardshell conservatives while on the "inside" until THEY GET ARRESTED. All of a sudden you begin questioning all the things that were once aboslutes. I regret that I cannot share my story as I do not want to be "outted". Too much at risk. And, I suppose I am still somewhat Desirous of Change...........hoping that something like the statement above will force it to happen.

    Without reviewing the link I seem to recall that it was partly BECAUSE OF this site that Simon left the Borg. It was a perfectly good pro-JW board but then the idiots in Brooklyn decided to lean on "independent" JW websites.

    I better go click the link to make sure my memory is accurate on this.

  • Honesty

    When people started using their heads for something other than bobbing them up and down every time the faithful and discreet slave was mentioned.
