All I can say is WOW.
Atlantis, I cannot thank you enough for posting that.
The argument I use most with my family (without attacking doctrinal issues) is that I felt part of the Pharasees and that the organization, whatever the original intent may have been, has morphed into this out of control judicial system, with bible principles (funny how the organization uses that phrase, but doesn't allow people act on principle) and logical Christian reasoning being replaced by law makers and law enforcers.
Shepherd the flock? Nah.....rule with the laws of the WT society keeping everyone in fear. One slip, and you are most likely gone.
I think the society's position on rape should shock and appall any logical person. When I was an elder and had to research some of that stuff, I was disgusted. It was another piece of the puzzle that helped me leave.
I have been building a library of how this judicial "law code" evolved in the organization. This is an invaluable tool for my research. Many thanks!
