    Only to family members when they say "aw cummon, you know it's the truth, you just dont want to take your punishment". Hit them with the A word and they literally jump out of their skin or pause for like 3 seconds and pretend you're invisible.

    Never done it to any cart witnesses though. I prefer to pretend im an ex Catholic who's being shunned by my Catholic family for studying with the witnesses. They all tell me that's terrible and how their org would welcome me.

    While not meant as one perhaps; nevertheless, your Mother gave you a great compliment!

    Apostates are the epitome of Cool!

    My jw thinks that people really would like to believe but they just can't live the lifestyle because they prefer to be 'sinners'. sigh. Ask a jw if they are sinners and they hem & haw and say things like they are not 'intentional sinners" like the rest of slobs. hmmm, I am rather negative today, yep, it is a meeting night.

    To all extents and purposes I should've been disfellowshipped by now. Even ten years ago when I faded I publicly spoke against JW beliefs. Even barred my kids from the meetings. Goodness knows how they've let me away with it but it's good because I've been able to influence or at least expose active JW's to the stuff they never get to know from other sources. Make them think a little.
