    recently i started editing a few articles, mostly about jehovah's witnesses, excommunication, raymond franz etc. on the german wikipedia. after a while i noticed i could add a little description about myself. i wrote something along the lines of "i'm a baptized jehovah's witness and atheist".

    today someone responded on my discussion page, asking if this is not misleading and if it's not like calling yourself a "vegetarian carnivore" or a "shiny dark night". the anonymous poster also mentioned that i appear to be very critical towards JWs. i responded about how difficult it is to leave the religion in a normal way without losing family. i also mentioned that i indeed try to apply critical thinking on everything, as it's the best way to come to a more or less neutral conclusion. i also said that i don't want to paint JWs - or any other religious group for that matter - in a wrong light, but i also want to bring up topics that they'd prefer to cover up.

    felt pretty good after posting this on my very own wikipedia user page. I can only recommend it.

    Great work hofer ! I love wikipedia, it's a wonderful recourse for information.

    My family and I gave up on religion too. Here's our blog about Babylon the Great's demise,

    including the WT portion of it. Keep up the good work on wikipedia, they need you!
