Poopie, here is Mr. Stwart's email address:
Angus Stewart calls the JW religion a captive organization
It's ridiculous to claim that it's not painful to leave, as the stated purpose of disfellowshipping is to inflict pain to force people to "come back to jehovah".
He was being disingenuous, pretending that people can leave without being disfellowshipped, when that is not always possible. Yes you can fade, but you are subject to being disfellowshipped for all of the many things JWs consider a sin that other religions do not. Living as a JW in every way except attending meetings and going in field service is not really leaving, they are still controlling you
" A Captive Organization is just a polite way of saying " A highly controlling relgoius cult "
