i was "enticed" into the spiritual paradise when i was 17, i was 59 when i got chucked out, and OH! so nicely told to go crawl in the gutter!!!
Nicely?? ..... yes, they were a bit scared of being sued... that's why they df'ed me for NOT trusting my brothers and confessing to my sins, instead of the REAL charge of homosexuality. david winder, PO in the congregation where i was, went out of his way to stress that.
because , i figured none of this was my ex-wife's fault, i gave her EVERYTHING we had materially and still got asked for more, and accused of some very terrible things which were not true!!!
the first 6 months was agony, but then i --- and here i can intro. the wonderful mr koh, whose name i am proud to take (hence kennikoh in my email address).. met that same mr koh and my life became better than ever!!!
in the close to 13 years since meeting him, we have bought and own outright our own home, i have money in the bank.. okie work, where i can increasingly be in control... in 2001 i took the year off to study, -- could do that, because we help each other
and can look forward to a reasonable and interesting retirement - attending university to do a degree...
all this in spite of the same judicial committee, telling other gay guys expelled from that same congregation that i am going to be a lonely old man!!!
false prophets indeed!!!!!
