This is a story about an old friend many years ago a girl about 18 that was in her last year of highschool when one of the boys in her school took a liking to her. Knowing she was a JW and probably told by her that she wouldnt date him because of this he feigned interest in the truth. He started a bible study with one of the brothers in the hall and of course was on her like white on rice.
She being shy did not have the resolve to tell him to get lost big time, she did many times but he would not give up, not to mention that since he was interested in the "truth" and studying she was told to be nice to him. He would hang out and show up all the time and make sure he was there when ever there was a gathering of her and her friends. Always at her home after school etc. and just would not take a hit or and out right "get away".
She was being raised only by her mom whom also was somewhat damir and she was dating someone so not around much, being their for her daughter. Eventually the boy (18) date raped the girl and she became pregnant. Being shy and ashamed she did not go immediately to the elders in her hall, infact she waited almost 4 months when it was becoming obvious that something was growing in her. Upon telling the elders what happened, did they show compassion, offer to help in anyway they could since she was about to be a single mother? No they Dis-fellowshiped her most likley because they felt miffed that she did not come to them right away. In the end I and my wife took her in to our home for a while and helped her the best we could since no one from her hall would have anything to do with her.
Its such a wonderful Organization that dis-fellowships and then shuns a young Girl that was raped, I'm sure Jesus is proud of the love they have for one another.
