LB just reminded me of something I forgot about. Damn I am mad all over again.
My sister was living with me and Denny a few years ago. At the time we were all doing the JW thing. My sister was single and got into a little trouble, nothing a meeting in the little room wouldnt fix. SO she was on restrictions.
We went to a kingdom hall building and as you know all the help is volunteer. My sister offered to help lay bricks but they told her she couldnt be used.
How sick is that. At the time I didnt think it that strange, after all you got punished for everything.
But looking back on it now, it is just sick. They let a younger sister lay bricks and she was just an unbaptized publisher who was in no hurry to join the rest of her family in getting baptized too soon.
Talk about making my sister feel like trash,, they sure did, more times than I want to remember.
I hate that I didnt see how bad all of this treatment was until after I left. I didnt feel that was right to do to her, she was trying to get her life back in order and had ceased any bad conduct . Just goes to show you how they like to use their power. But alot of things that happened to us as JW's we just filed away and figured what ever was happening to us, fair or not, was God's will.
