    I was surfing my PVR yesterday and came across the last segment of

    I let it run so that my wife could have the benefit of hearing these nasty cult members behaving in exactly the same way and using the same reasoning as is recommended in next weekend's Watchtower.

    She left the room before it finished, but not before she heard them justifying their shunning practices just like good little Dubbies.

    Hello again! I think the original poster is asking about when you were there before

    you knew the truth about them. How did you feel about the doctrine/practices then?

    Some of the posters, it seems to me (I could be wrong-don't hurt me), are projecting back

    what they know now. It will be more interesting to me if you can post what it was then

    that you did not like. Before the revelation. Do a little time travel. It should be fun!

    Hello N.drew, no I don't know how you could have reached that conclusion. I'm interested in how people feel NOW.

    Thanks, cedars

    for me that's the same thing, i only didn't allow myself to (or was trained not to) think about it too much back then.

  • N.drew

    You are right cedars. I reread your post. I do not let the Watchtower irritate me

    any more, so I assumed you may have meant then. I am far far away from them.

    If I let them irritate me, that would be legerdemain. They do not care about me, let them be.
