It has been a long time. I think it's been 8 years since my last post, so most of you don't know me. I'm LoneWolf, (not to be confused with Lone_Wolf - he probably wouldn't want to claim me) (Grin) I wonder if any of the old crew are still around.
I was raised a Witness, forth generation, and my first time card was in 1946, when I was six years old. I have 6 kids, 10 grandkids, & 2 great-grandkids, and we are working on our 51st year of marriage. The fact that almost all of my family are still in the organization, even though I was disfellowshipped about 25 years ago should speak to the fact that circumstances are anything but ordinary in our situation.
I would ascribe the survival of our family in such a difficult environment to 4 factors:
- I do all that's humanly possible to be fair to all, in all circumstances.
- I don't try to pressure anyone to compromise their consciences, which is as you can imagine, quite a balancing act. I go to great lengths to that end BUT, I remind them that I deserve that same respect.
- I have a better knowledge of true christianity than those bird-brains back east ever had.
- I don't take any B. S. off them at all. They get out of line, they pay the price. They've learned the hard way that it's risky crossing this crabby old man.
But, there's always a fool somewhere in the mix, so I figure it's time to educate them a little more. Something has occurred that has me riled. What I've come up with is both subtle and as forceful as a sledgehammer. They want to destroy families? That's fine. I'll show them how, by destroying theirs. I'll match them on the field of psychological warfare any day.
I have already sent an open letter to many entities, most of which are large, and I'm going to post it here tomorrow night. You have my invitation to use it in any way you wish. However, don't assume for a minute that this will be a one shot fight. I have a whole program where I can throw one blow after another, and they are aimed directly at their vulnerable spots, some of which even they don't know are vulnerable.
So tomorrow night I'll be posting the open letter. A night or two after that I'm going to post parts of the strategy behind this offense, simply to thumb my nose in their face with the challenge, "Here's what I'm up to. Stop me if you can."
On the other hand, there will be a few things said that should resonate with you, and I hope that they will clear up some of the confusion and doubts that have been experienced.
For the record, my faith in Jehovah is strong, stronger than it ever was while in the Organization, and for good reason. I'll cover that some other time.
Until tomorrow night, then, sleep well.
