I'll refrain from commenting on the shooting. I spent 2 hours on FB last night doing that. Let's just say I'm a devout 2nd Amendment supporter and believe more guns are the answer.
Anyhoo, I'm 48 and I was DFed when I was 19. I was born and raised in the Lie and hated nearly every minute of it. I was pressured into getting babtized at 14 and things went down hill from there. I tried to block all things JW out of my mind and I have lead a pretty decent life (which would have been even better if I would have went to college. I was accepted into the Institute of Technology at the U of M but never went) and have a good career that I love. But, I've had to work my ass off to get to where I am now.
I have 6 siblings and I think only 2 are regular JWs. My mother is a vegetable in a home and my dad regularly attends. He was inactive for most of my teen years but was an elder when I was young but removed himself for whatever reason. I still kinda believed that BS until about 3 years ago when I stumbled across C0C. It really opened my eyes and pissed me off at the same time. That's also about the same time I checked out this site. I tried to join a few times but this site is technically all fupped duck.
So, unless I getted booted out of here, you guys are stuck with me.
