I want to state this for the unfairness of it. (Double standard).
Fifty years ago, a JW girl, Ma----- Co--, tells her JW boyfriend, Bo-- Jo----- she is pregnant. Sorry, I don't remember that part of the story, if she was or wasn't pregnant but the point was they were having sex and were not confessing to the Elders. (He has been an Elder for 40 years and a Servant before that). So there was no private, or public reproof or disfellowshipping .
He tells his Bestman, Wa ---- Wa ---- this. His Bestman (who was a Servant and then an Elder until he died) tells his best friend, my ex-husband about Bo & Ma's horizontal rumba bumba goings on.
Forty years ago my ex points this couple out to me.
Time goes by.
Thirty years ago, we are invited out to a small country congregation, where my ex gives the public talk. Afterwards, we go to the PO's for Sunday dinner.
This couple, from 5o years ago, Bo-- & Ma----- Jo-----, with their daughter, are in this congregation, so come along for dinner also.
The couple whos house/farm it is, my ex has known for 55 years. He doubled dated with them once. He said they were pretty hot and heavy at it in the back seat of his car, way back when.
This PO's oldest son, Ma--, acted strange. Bo-- and Ma-----'s daughter, acted strange.
Come to find out, a few weeks later, this girl is pregnant (for real) from the PO's oldest son. Nothing happened to either of them. Her Uncle, who is her father's brother, is a District Overseer. He came out and gives their wedding talk! WT?? The DO was/is Wa --- Jo-----.
The PO who's oldest son got his girlfriend pregnant? His name is Jo-- and his wife is Ma-- Fu-----. They became CO's, shortly after this incident took place.
I hate the pontificating of privileges for some, and disfellowshipping and shunning for others. I hate it.
