    I was searching Google for Alan Feuerbacher and found H2O which led me to JWD. I was also on This Caliban guy was starting a site that seemed JW approved but then not. JWD was really small. I remember Frenchy, Waiting, SevenofNine and PathofThorns posting a lot. I read a lot until I got brave enough to post worrying about being found to be an apostate.

    I'm glad I'm hear and thank Simon and Angharad for their personal sacrifices.

    I was watching a religious program on cable TV, and it was about cults. They gave silentlambs url. I found them first, then i believe randy walters site, and then here. i liked this , it seemed friendly. So it really was slient lambs that got me here.

    I came here through a good friend who has posted here,although I am a non and never has been a JW,I grew up with a fairly stifeling religious background,my Father was a Vicar,and to grow up as a vicars son is something else!.In no way shape or form do I ever hold that against my Dad for doing what he wanted to do with his life,he was a bomb aimer in the R.A.F in ww2,so I guess he had to find his answers to life,but for me,I have had a constant battle over the years,to be me,and not,'oh your the vicars son',as was quoted many many times,I felt in my earlier years as though I was in a shadow,and to be quite honest,I always felt that most organised religion was a form of mind control,and from my time I have spent here,I dont think I am far wrong.

    Apart from that,I have never found a site for partly screwed up vicars sons,we have to recover as well,and it is suprising how issues here cross paths.

    Take care.

    I came here from the "beyond" ex-jw site. I don't know about now, but I never found this site come up in an IE search. I have that site which I posted on for 2 months and this one both to thank for giving me some sanity and helping me let it all out.

    I don't think any of us can fully comprehend what a grand job sites like this do in helping people.

    I found this site I believe through Freeminds. I enjoy this one compared to other sites for several reasons. Always something new, interesting, and get to listen to other peoples opinions on many different subjects.

    I was a very infrequent poster to the H2O site. When I was just leaving in utter disgust, Uncle Bruce suggested I peek in here. I'm happy he did. Have met many new friends of the Internet type.

    Little Miss Eyegirl said "Hey there is this cool site with Apostates, and they have Apostefests, and their all a cool bunch of peopl"

    After I realized Apostates are not scary people who steal small children sacrifice goats I decided to pop in and see what it was like...and lo, it was good!

    I remeber some time ago the Freeminds site had it's own discussion board, which quickly grew out of control. then one day I browsed into freeminds again and clicked on the discussion board link at the botton of the page and it brought me here. I had been lurking ex-jw discussion boards since 1998, first Tishie's board and then h2o. I was never a really active poster on either of those boards, as with this board.

    I just called up my sister out of the blue one day and said I'm quitting going to meetings.

    She said: "We quit a year ago."

    Then, among many other things, she gave me the address of this site.

    Oh! My sister is Waiting, one of the Supreme Ones here

    After shunning my Non JW family for decades, my JW family decided to get in touch.

    I did a search on Jehovahs witnesses to get a refresher on how nutty they are and found Randy's Freeminds site. I found the link to here, lurked for a few months, and Wa la!
