Thanks so much everyone this has been very helpful to me.
@Phizzy – This seems like how it’s probably going to go down for us as well. We live far from parents. The difference is we need to bring it up, but that is a good disarming intro line.
@jemba – I actually don’t think they have, I would have heard something by now. I wish they would though it would actually make this process easier.
@BreathofIndianNoise – That might be an interesting angle, I’ll think about that. I think I just have too much anger to play the victim though.
@Mind Blown – I realize that I’m not going to convert them. I just want to state my case, so that I don’t have to pretend when I’m around them anymore. Listening to them go on and on about how great the organization is not good for my blood pressure.
@Nikki – Thanks for sharing your experience, I can’t believe your step dad called for that? Where is this great love they profess?
@PrincessPeachz – well that was nice of you to email your family, I figure I’ll just let the parents take care of that part.
@Skbj – Indeed it is. I like letters because then you can get your precise thoughts across without interruption.
@Flipper – I agree, whatever I do say will be very little or in summary. It’s nice you still have a relationship with your folks. The problem with me is I’m not offended by local elders it’s the governing body and there long history of wrong teachings. I always appreciate the kind way you express yourself, and thanks for being here.
@Balaamsass – The thing is, is it hurts more to pretend if that make sense. At least If they know we might not speak to each other but everyone knows where we stand. The stumbled argument might be good, I could say I am stumbled by the governing body…LOL.
