This has been asked before, however I thought it may be good for newer members of the board to read some of our reasons on HOW we decided to exit the JW cult and why we decided to do it the way we did.
First off - I have been faded for almost 8 years. Essentially I decided to fade into inactivity and not DA because I have elderly JW parents who would shun me if I did get DFed or DAed myself. Also- I like keeping open the possibilities that some of my many JW relatives may in time start doubting and have questions and reach out to me in my inactive state. I feel I'm more able to assist them in a fading state than DFed or DAed because of the WT society telling them to avoid me if I was in a DFed state. They wouldn' listen at all to me if I was in that state.
I consider myself a non-Witness and conduct my life as such , but just sit in waiting like my older son does - hoping like him that some of our JW family in time will start questioning things. So have you folks faded or are you DFEd, or DAed and what led to your decision to remain such ? As always I look forward to your takes and observations. Peace out to all, Mr. Flipper
