    Hi Bill,

    I'm terribly curious, why didn't you go into that Kingdom Hall where the "secret" meeting took place after they taped up the windows? Maybe I didn't read your announcement thoroughly enough, but I can't seem to recall you mentioning if you were invited inside or not...?


    PS. Keep up the good work!

    As I recall, Bill didn't go in because no "witnesses" showed up adding to my opinion that Bill is firing for effect and couldn't care less about being re-instated into the cult.

    Carmel I understood it the same way that you did.

    I am not sure, but it seems to me that he is fighting for PRINCIPLE.

    I, myself, get depressed, upset, pray, think about going back to meetings, try reading an article, think about all the many things that I experienced that were good, think about how many things I agree with....... and I think, ok, I will go back. Then my brain takes over again and I remember the "secret" meetings the elders have (both at the hall and at the conventions and CA's) that they cannot tell about; I remember the child abusers that might be in the same Hall with me and I won't be warned; I remember the shunning; I remember the blood issue; I remember the hypocrites!!!

    I remember I cannot talk to my dear friends, who now are not my friends. I remember the love they talked about, how its only in Jah's organization. Sorry, I had some worldly friends I had made at work, and you know what???? They stand by me, they love me, they support me, they encourage me and we have even had disagreements but they are DONE, over with, move-on!! They don't keep grudges nor do I. Had we been in the truth, someone would have gossiped to the whole hall or at least the PO's wife (same as gossiping to the whole hall).

    So, sometimes I just wish I didn't go to the meetings but I don't think df'ing was the answer..... I don't know how Bill feels

    (sorry for venting on your thread!)

    Sigh.....I'm sure he is going through a lot. He needs our support more than ever.

    I worry about Farkel.
