Wow everyone, thank you for the warm welcome. I want to thank all of you for your help in my life. When I first started reading *gasp!* others opinions about the WTS and JWs at first some people appeared overly critical or bitter, (completely understandable to me now) and I thought "maybe they're right. Apostates are just bitter/had a bad experience and now try to find fault with any and everything. Or maybe they are 'influenced by Satan' and just out to turn others away." But then there are certain comments I read and really see that these are real people who are sincere. Also many have recommended "Combatting Cult Mind Control". I read it in about a week and everything make perfect sense! It gave a name to things that I knew were a factor in why seemingly everyone around me didn't see anything wrong with the Organization, but I just couldn't put my finger on it.
My wife knows but she still thinks that It's The Truth™ The rest of my family knows there is "something wrong wonderful going on".
Again many thanks, I hope to get to know many of you better.
