Re: Conversation with [family member] herein referred to as "M". Not to be confused with another family member also referred to as "M".
During phone conversation with M, M expressed concern that we may be having too much contact in view of my df'd status. I asked if M was referring to the recent KM insert about dealing with df'd ones. That disarmed M a little bit, and made the rest of the conversation easier.
M expressed the desire for me to come back to Jehovah. My response was that I have never left Jehovah, that I was only fired from an organization. To which M could present no rebuttal, and barely even tried.
Then I began to prep for my initial assault. I informed M that I would love to return to the association with the many people I grew up with and still care so much for, however there are far too many glaring problems with the organization that need to be addressed. I pointed out that I'm not saying "it's not the 'truth'" but sometimes you do indeed have to see the trees instead of the forest and in this case especially.
The initial assault:
Disfellowshipping/shunning, Alternative Military Service, The U.N. NGO issue. (M had never heard of it)., The Blood doctrine. And then I unleashed a tactical nuclear weapon in the "apostate" arsenal: Pedophiles. M has heard of the Dateline episode. An elder in M's congregation has taped it and the tape has been distributed in M's congregation. I urged M to get a copy, and offered mine. I also mentioned Leo Greenlees.
The Main Assault:
M asked for documentation proving the WTS/UN affiliation. I'll be researching here as much as I can, but would appreciate someone to point me in the right direction to find documentation from the UN regarding the requirements for NGO's and official documentation from the UN proving the WTS was in fact an NGO.
I think that would be sufficient as a first wave, with the second wave involving indepth information on the complete blood policy.
At this point, M is open to what I have to say therefore I must act quickly.
I'm calling for backup on this....STAT!
