It may seem a strange question, but when I served as an Elder I personally knew of about a dozen Elders and servants children who joined various Wicca groups or became Buddists rather than leave to become agnostic or another "Christian" denomination.
The ones who became involved with Witchcraft did so in groups of JW children intregued by all the talk of Satan's and the Demon's power etc. in the org.
The future Buddists seemed turned off by the politics, and mean spiritness in halls.
I just thought of this after seeing the new dismal Yearbook numbers and looking at facebook pages of some of the ex JWs I know.
Was this simply a California thing or is it worldwide?
