    marriage is a huge step , what influence do family have here ? At what age is too young ?

    Baptism is a huge step , is it without peer pressure ? or the consequences that maybe involved ?

    Life and death is a huge step

    Choosing your religion is a huge step ,however family can influence this decision

    Blood or no blood is a huge step ,what influence does outside pressures have to bear on this decision ?

    Young people and the influence of their parents and peers within a cult .

    I have had this debate many times with my witness family. Even though I was baptised at 11 I use that as my argument that I was way too young to have been allowed to make such a life changing decision. It is wrong. Legally you have to 16 or 18 to make certain desicions about alcohol, driving and marriage. Should be the same with baptism!

    Splash, you nailed it. I am speechless with rage at the way things are going. Youngsters are being set up to be enmeshed and enslaved. They don't know that they face a choice of zombie obedience or estrangement from everyone they know and love.

    It is evil.

    Good link.

    Shit, can they not up it to 50s, this will give me the chance to develop my brain away from cult indoctrination.

    I think the science is still being debated So you may have a shot ;) The point is 9 or 10 is way way too young to get married and certainly too young to join a cult

    Dunk 'em young, so that if they figure out the TTATT by their late teens/early twenties, they can be DFed before they cause any trouble

    Marry 'em young, because God forbid they have nonmarital sex (and get pregnant) like everyone else and expose the fact that JWs are no holier than any other churchgoin' folk.
