    llamacool, you have GOT to whip out [simmer down, let me finish the sentence] your cell-phone camera and catch video the next time this kind of sh*t goes down...

    You can share it with us via YouTube, hint, hint...

    When I began seeing the truth about "the truth", my parents thought I was experiencing a hormone imbalance due to my age (I was only 36!) and thought it was affecting my ability to reason! Seriously, they did!

    I laughed so hard, LOL!

    Didn't the April Watchtower call apostates "mentally diseased?"

    In good company:

    John 10

    11 “ I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me, 15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. 18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.”

    19 A division occurred again among the Jews because of these words. 20 Many of them were saying, “He has a demon and is insane. Why do you listen to Him?”

    We all know you're nuts, and it has nothing to do with Leaving The Truth™.

  • I quit!
    I quit!

    It's just the way people in cults view those who leave the cult. It doesn't matter if you're a Mormon or a JW or whatever, they all think someone who leaves them must be posessed by demons or crazy but we all know who the real crazy one are.

    If you are not sure try this: Check to see what kind of underwear you are wearing. Did you by at a department store or did you buy it through your church? Is having a cup of coffee, coke or a beer just something you do or don't do or is it a religious issue to you?

    This past Saturday did you play golf, go to the beach, go out for breakfast ? Or go through your neighborhood in 90 degree weather peddling religious magazines in a business suit?
