stuckinamovement... read the WT in question and you'll find your "real" answer ;-)
The comments section there is a minefield lol. I love this one JW's argument against Atheism:
" Why is there somthing and not nothing?" - he basically pimpsmacked science with that one lol
Also digging the fact that this is the most popular article on this newspaper's website at the moment.
Just thinking out loud: there's 7 million JW's now. I wonder how many exJW's there are now? and if/when that number will excede the JW's numbers? Could it have happened already?
This is a really really big deal. Congrats to Angus and Cedars for publicizing this.

Seems to me you had some input into this idea didn't you? ... 'cause sometimes not having one of those penis thingys can get you completely overlooked!!
this is good stuff!!
This from the comments section sums it up:
"If a person changes their mind about Bible-based teachings they once held dear, we recognise their right to leave."
That's kind of like throwing someone out of a window and saying, "we recognise their right to fall to the ground".

I'm Bill Blyth who commented on your post - HI
The WT society spokesman Rick Fenton said, " we recognize their right to leave . " What a liar ! No they don't ! There IS NO acceptable way to exit Jehovah's Witnesses without being shunned by former JW family & friends. And that's true whether you are DFed, DAed, OR just become inactive and stop attending. Ridiculous
Great work Cedars, Angus and Amelia for getting this attention. YOu guys are awesome.
hopefully someone will point out this Fenton is lying and they are pros at it. they're always lying using this same line that it's up to the individual witness. the individual witness has no rights and are afraid of being shunned/excluded/marked.
