My 17 year old nephew is visiting from Florida and to my surprise, last night in conversation, he revealed that for the last 2 years, he has come to realize that the Watchtower society " is a bunch of BS" and that he can see how people are brainwashed in the organization.
Interestingly, he has come to realize this, without knowing any of the facts and scandals that we all know about - he simply can see things don't add up. Naturally our conversation progressed to discuss the inconsistencies in the Org which he had no idea about, and the flood gates were opened.... He now wants to read the Ray Franz's books, and get as much information as possible.
He told me that the young people in the hall are beginning to speak to each other about " the issues", while keeping these conversations away from the parent's ears. Sadly, my sister still expects and somewhat forces the kid to attend the meetings, but i told him that he should be wise and patient in the process of stepping away from the cult, to avoid too much collateral damage.
I often feared that the kid would be pressured into being baptized in the cult, but he seems determined to make sure that will never happen. So there you go, another one of my family members is on the way out. I know that my mom is a lost case, as she is will never stop being a witness - mostly because she doesn't even care about any obvious fallacies of the cult, but perhaps my sister will eventually come to her senses and leave the destructive brotherhood.
Above all, it's nice to see a young kid freeing himself at such a young age - he has his entire life ahead of him without having to deal with the suffocating control exerted by the Washtowel society. And if he is right, this younger generation is slowly coming to it's senses, which spells very bad news for the Org.
