Keep posting. Lurkers need to see how cultish even parents can be when children want to leave the religion. - John 13:35
Here are a few shining examples of how JWs act when an adult chooses to simply quit attending meetings:
SSC's MOM: Neither will I apologize for hanging up on you
How Christian and loving of her, ... NOT!
SSC's MOM: It's sad that a silly difference between parents can cause these two little ones not to be able to spend time together.
Yes. Welcome to WT/JW control and manipulation through institutionalized shunning.
SSC's MOM: Fault is found because of a clearer understanding, or information is changed.
Why oh why can't they just admit they are wrong?
SSC's MOM: You fail to accept the fact that Jehovah's organization is perfect and it's on the move.
Uh, how can it be "perfect" when it's "changing" information or constantly needing a "clearer understanding"?
SSC's MOM: Think of the cost, the time, all the resources Jehovah has used so that "millions now living would never die".
Does she not know that Rutherford said this in almost 100 years ago? He even admitted that he made "as ass" of himself over that statement! - Watchtower, October 1, 1984, p. 24
BTW, all the people that first heard that statement back in February 1918 are now dead. Every one of them!
SSC's MOM: Today, I prepared another blood card in case I have to have surgery. You were my second surrogate.
I think she means "Emergency Contact." Surrogate is completely the wrong word here.
BTW, when are JWs gonna' get it right? It's called the "Advance Medical Directive," not the "Blood Card"! If anything, they should call it the "No Blood Card."
Yet more examples of sloppy thinking.
SSC's MOM: As Peter said to Jesus when asked if he wanted to leave....Where can we go?
No mom! The verse actually says this: "Simon Peter answered him: 'Lord, whom shall we go away to? You have sayings of everlasting life.'" Note the use of the word "whom," not "where." You may want to look it up.
SSC's MOM: The beard,....... I know that for reasons due to health you had to let it grow out. Well, when you can, cut it off. Even if you won't admit it, to yourself, that's part of your rebelliousness.
Ok, that's just stupid. Having a beard is proof a being "rebellious" even though she acknowledges that you grew it for health reasons?!? WTF!
JWs are simply bat-shit crazy.
Sorry you're dealing with this.
Hang in there.
Obviously your mom loves you. Don't forget, she is a captive of JW cult mind-control.
