Thank you all who responded to my earlier post, I am pleased to say there has been a major development.
Just twenty minutes ago I was sitting at the piano and my wife comes up to me and says, "I talked to the brothers, you were absolutely right, I apologize, he (my minor son) will never go to the meetings again". I sat there in stunned shock both happy and sad at the same time. It was a victory, but a very hollow victory. My minor son will not be sneaked off to be further indoctrinated, but at the same time it gave me no joy whatsoever to see her cower and lament under the yoke of these elders or even me her own husband.
God I hate this cult!
I so hate the fact that I can just cut and paste the magic words from the Watchtower magazine, put them in a letter, have the elders read it, and then my wife is told by these small-minded men to obey me. I just know it was the little blurb I put in this letter gleaned from a Watchtower that says blah blah blah unbelieving husband still the head, blah blah blah, he calls the shots, blah blah blah.
So thats it. Now I know how to make my wife jump through hoops, all I have to do is find it somewhere in a publication written by corrupt men that are in possession of not even quite a high school education. Disgusting!
Did I mention
I HATE THIS F*UCKING CULT!!!
