In my situation, I will admit that I have been very lucky. I know that I will one day be disfellowshipped and im so proud of my dad for saying to me that he would NEVER abandon his children over a religion. He is adamant that the bible DOESNT teach that.
I have other gay friends and im aware that many of you here have been and are in the situation where your parents have not been so understanding. I hope that things pick up for you.
We have stopped going to meetings and on field service, but we have continued our biblical discussions. My dad and I, are very keen on deep bible study. We often research the words, their meanings and how the principles in the bible can make us just better, decent people. That is beneficial bible study. We are sick of the JW slant on things. My brother is not so interested in this side of things, but Im sure he will be happy anyway.
I was trying to consider what my situation will be now. It feels wierd. We are totaly free! No one has control over me and I have free will to say and do what I want. I wonder how many of the bros and sis are going to ask me about it when they see me. I work with one sister regularly, and she will be upset, but I will tell her that i actualy am proud of him for making this stand. She knows that I dont agree with the FDS and I think this will upset her. I can see that after speaking my heart with a number of bros and sis, and word getting around, the elders will form a judicial comittee and brandish me an apostate!
BRING IT ON!!!
