Hubby and I (faders) were in the supermarket today.
We had just avoided and completely ignored an elder and his wife when we saw a newly married couple who were both recently disfellowshipped, of course being the rebels we are we made a bee line for them.
The DF man was until recently a workmate of my Hubby so they quickly got into an animated discussion and I met the new wife who seemed nice but let me know they were getting reinstated ASAP. I was really dying to know if their DF had 'stumbled' them but unfortunately not.
I let them know that it was my DF years ago that set me on the path to realising that it wasnt the true religion.
The guys first wife had divorced him years ago but not 'scripturally' so if either of them wanted to marry again they would have to 'commit adultery' so it was up to him to free himself so he could marry this new lady.
I cant believe that after all the cult has put them through they still feel like its Gods chosen religion. Its so frustrating that they just cant see it.
But at least I got to put on a show for the ex-bethel couple who I imagine were in shock.
The DF couple invited us to drop around anytime but I really dont see the point because they just want to be JWs again and could never respect us for our stand.
