About 1 year 10 months
Rarely, usually elders that want to do their duty,
but after a few minutes I put a kink in their armor and they quickly
retreat. I kind of enjoy that.
As an elder for many years
I will say this. When one of the members fades, it is a rare thing that elders
go hunting for that fading one. 99% percent of the elders have way too much
going in their lives for them to be on the watch out for faders. Only 1% are
crazy enough or have too much time on their hands to chase a fader. That’s why
if you decide to fade, move to another congregation across the city, preferably
another language, and more than likely you can fade with ease. The new
congregation couldn’t care less if you show up at the meeting or not. It’s not
like they are real shepherds that really care.
The only way a fader gets a bullseye painted on their forehead,
is usually because some family member or friend brings it to the attention of
the elders. Otherwise the elders would never know. They are too busy preparing
talks every week, collecting time, KH maintenance, secular work, their own
families, conventions with all the stupid arrangements, CO visits, etc. Elders
have way too much on their plate. That’s why when you fade, you’re worst
enemies are your zealous wife, your kids or worse, your husband who happens to
be a MS or Elder. If you are single your close friend will turn you in immediately. Zealous
parents can also be your worst nightmare if you fade.
But Elders-----they really couldn’t give a Shi** They rather
you leave them alone. That’s why nobody wants to be an elder these days, it’s a
pain in the butt. Especially with the tons of faders these days, it’s a
nightmare to be and elder. You won’t
have a life.
I know lots of people that left for unexplained
reasons. Never knew why, maybe they learned ttatt.
Na! I know all the tricks to Judicial Committees
plus I’m aware of a lot of dirty laundry among the elders. Hell would break
loose in my Old Kingdom Hall. Maybe some would even go to jail or at least be
on the 6 o’clock news. It's a catch 22.
Everyone talks to me, no one shuns me but I hear
some gossip about me from time to time but usually by those who have a
reputation for gossiping.
I faded because I wanted to do research and was
so busy researching that when I woke up, it didn’t really matter to me to be a
fader. Now that I am fully awake I kind
of like the idea of knowing what I know and enjoy planting seeds of doubt on
the jws. Sometime they frustrate me but sometimes I am pleasantly surprised.
I attend no meetings at all and never will
Yea they have nothing, nada, they’re a bunch of morons. They’re as
deluded as I use to be, poor bastards.
