I never cease to be amazed by the sacrifice that the WTS foolishly requires. One of the larger sacrifices is that of personal freedom that has been demanded of young men and women around the globe. Many are sent to prison for several years and have a felony on their record for life. All because some men in an ivory tower refused to let you participate in some form of alternative service.
I think I am so amazed by the stories I hear, because shines light on the lies I was told. I was born several years after Vietnam and I was always told that all you had to do was tell the courts that you were a conscientious objector! Boom, it's just that easy. Then I come on here and find out that the WTS hung these young men out to dry. They didn’t back them in court, and took away alternative service options. They sacrificed these young men to promote their theology.
So, if this happened to you and you want to tell your story. I am sure that many of us who did not live through those eras or live in those countries would really appreciate it. If you have told your story before you can just post a link or repost the story.
