    Which is precisely what Watchtower’s Governing Body asks the community of Jehovah’s Witnesses to do.

    Then Watchtower’s Governing Body abuses that trust.

    Just recall WT's position on truth-telling:

    While malicious lying is definitely condemned in the Bible, this does not mean that a person is under obligation to divulge truthful information to people who are not entitled to it. - Insight on the Scriptures, Volume II, pp. 244, 245 (heading: LIE).

    The average JW does not realize that the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses - the very individuals they are entrusting their lives, and the lives of their children to - do not respect them enough to consider them 'entitled to truthful information'.

    That quotation was one of the most important discoveries I made about the religion that I almost died in childbirth for. The sense of betrayal I felt over that realization was enormous.

    * The sense of betrayal. *

    That nails it for me . . .

    It's the one thing that never quite seems to go away . . . and I doubt it ever will.
