I'm really into Politics and Current events. I'm more of the Libertarian type. I voted Bush the last election, Clinton before. I am a member of the Urban League and Habitat for Humanity and also a foster parent of 3 and 2 of our own, 5 kids, dang we are busy but we have a lot of fun, ages 12, 11, 10, 9 and 14 months, the 12 and 14 month are our natural kids, 2 boys, 3 girls.
2 of the foster kids are white ages 9, 11 and I can tell you racism is taught at home by the example parents set, kids are not born with it. I have some ineresting experiences having 2 white kids in my home via public reaction, nothing really bad but interesting.
Since I left the JW's in 1996 I have replaced it with politics and issues regarding African Americans. I have made a host of internet friends many I've met personally. And many other good people who are actually active in helping our community. I find these are the people who make it happen and they seem to be more balanced in their views, not whiners but doers.
My question is, if you are a X-JW how have your views changed regarding civic duties.
Do you have any interest in politics and current events?
Have you voted yet, what are your political leanings?
Or are you still stuck in the JW mud? You know, you have not gotten over your wonderful JW experience. LOL
