    I don't think the WTS makes sane people crazy...


    ...I do think that - these days - it attracts people with mental health problems, and/or makes said problems worse.

    I'm curious. Has your mom been to the 2013 DC?

    Bobcat - she goes in 2 weeks. I am suuuuuuuuuuuuure that once she returns things will intensify based upon what i Have heard from this assembly in regards to Apostates. If she is like this before the assembly I can only imagine what she will do after. i will be wearing a hard hat to avoid being stoned

    At the DC I heard them use Matt 10:32-37 as a description of DFed ones (that these DFed ones were causing the division in the family by leaving Jehovah and that loyalty to Christ required shunning them.) Sickest mis-ap/twisting of Scripture I've heard for a while.It was really reaching for straws. Some of what your mom said sounds like she may have been influenced by that or by someone telling her about that application.

    I hope things work out for you.

    Take Care


    JW Mom`s..

    Your a good guy Soso, I think at this point I would just shun her. For your own sanity and your family.

    She needs some time away from this problem. She is one that would drink the Kool-Aid for sure.

    Just send her a simple card: "love you mom"

    Best thing ever!

    I'm going to add my voice to the commenters saying "sounds like my mom." No answers here, but you have my sympathy. I've been there.

    sosoconfused, thanks for sharing- sorry you're going through this. It makes me think about my own mother and how she reacted when I let her know I was turning away from the little path that was paved for us. At times she would freak, others she would sit in silence as I made my points, and most of the time it's been about how I should change. It's extremely troubling that different beliefs will cause such a division in the family, especially with the people you'd least expect to be betrayed by. Wish you all the best..
