OUTLAW- Great thread. Indeed I have had MUCH more grief in life from the WT society and JW world than I EVER have had in the outside REAL world ! Witness fmily members shun me , I rarely if EVER get a call from my JW siblings or JW daughters - I had to fight for my freedom to escape the claws of the WT beast ! They chased after me like the U.S. Government chased after the Indian chiefs Chief Joseph, Geronimo , & Sitting Bull. Traveling 80 miles from THEIR location to harass me and my new wife 4-5 years ago. Even after I stopped attending meetings 4 years prior to that !
The silver lining is my 80 something year old JW parents still respect me and my wife. They are lovely - but they would have been ANYWAY without the JW mindset. My siblings always were JW's from birth , they know nothing else. It's still no excuse , my siblings are basically dickheads .
I have a wonderful NON-Witness father & mother in law who treat me like their own son and would give the shirt off their back for Mrs. Flipper and I. Have a great non-Witness brother in law who I get along with great ! A wonderful inactive, non-Witness son whose love for me and my wife is unconditional and is thicker than life itself ! Peace out, Mr. Flipper
