No, you are mistaking what I am saying. I am for the apostates and I think they need to come together. I don't give a crap if you choose to "judge' my comment. I know what I meant. When I said, everyone is talking about it, I am meaning this page is NOT only ex jws it is also current jw and yes they are talking. So even her negative post, still chatter is happening. There are witnesses that pose as exjws and if you don't think so, then you are sadly mistaken.
The only reason I posted several posts in a row in here, is because I was having problems with my computer posting what I was posting and it kept dropping me off. JUDGE much? Not only that, but I do have other thoughts that come in after posting all the time. After all my abuse and being hit in the head several time, there are some issues I have to endure. Try to give people chances instead of being so negative. For some reason, I can't add to previous posts after everytime I was dropped. You are jumping to conclusions. How about maybe not thinking the worst of people. What I have a problem with is the post. Let me start at the beginning.
Most of the people that showed have never actually met. You need to be a bit more empathetic towards the situation and start maybe seeing this in other people's shoes instead of your over the imaginative idea of what was going to happen or how it was "supposed" to happen. There was NO plan except where to meet. Sooooo several traveled there not even knowing the area. Give them a bit of slack would you? Fateful Slave only wore tennis shoes because he had no more room in the luggage since he had to pack light because of the train. Wow, I can't believe you judged someone because of their clothing. Ok, he handed out books. Big deal, maybe some asked for him to bring them. He gave them as gifts and didn't charge. Still, you judge. Each person, let's not call them Apostates since it's demeaning. Each person has their own style due to the emotions they feel and what has happened. Don't discount that, it takes all kinds to he hears. Not all listen to soft and gentle ways, some need the slap in the face loud in your face kind. Remember it's not done for a "look" it's done to same people and the children. I'm not sure why you are "reviewing" people on Yelp since yelp is for businesses. That's just weird. Ok about the dress attire again. You don't know each person's situation of why they wore what they wore. You are asking them to try to dress like witnesses and act like witnesses and be organized like witnesses. If you miss it, you can always go back, oh wait, your an apostate, good luck with that Pedro. Your choice of dress does not mean that yours was right and everyone else's was wrong. Agan, this is no an organization. These are just people that wanted to get the attention of the Watchtower and the real point at hand. The belief of partaking only for the anointed is a Jehovah's Witness teaching ONLY. Again, if you want to keep with their false doctrines, dress, programs and organization, I suggest you go back. Oh again, you can't. Calling someone "Christs brother" is absolutely hateful just because he chooses to have long hair. Smh again more judging of people trying to do good. I think it's funny how you judge them for getting in the car and making plans where to go door to door, but yet you keep talking about how they don't act or dress like witnesses. Maybe you should rethink about going back. wait, you can't. Now, your going to judge them discussing their past "accomplishments" in the meeting which all already know of. What else do you expect them to discuss? They are all going thru the same thing you are. Everyone deals with it differently. Even you. There is NO film footage of bad police issues. If so, then present them for your statements. Nothing testy happened because it was a "peaceful protest". I don't think you really left. You are sounding like a Jehovah's Witness hateful snob. "their stories took turns that seemed unlikely or exaggerated" HOW DARE YOU!!!! How unfeeling and hateful can you be? More and more you sound like a JW and not an exjw. I bet once you are found out about who you are, after your post, I doubt anyone will want to "collaborate" with you for fear of you lashing out if you don't agree. That's a JW trait too. I'm glad you are finding your own style of speaking out, but maybe you need to tweak it if you want to be heard. Take the expectations down about 30 notches. If you want to be a "leader" then be a leader, but these people have already stated they don't want to be your leader. Each is doing their own thing and they are DONE with "leaders". Step up to the plate and demonstrate otherwise instead of pointing a finger (jw trait again). You said "I'm saying that even when I was ACTUALLY sick, I would still play it up to make sure my mom would give in." Sooooo you want them to lie and act? If you want to be deceitful and hide things then maybe you need to be following Cedars. I am glad to see exjws smiling, that shows to everyone, that happiness is possible outside the organization. Each person put their own time and effort into making those signs. Putting others down because of their signs, I can't imagine how many peoples feelings you hurt from your post. I'm sure each person was proud of their signs that they did and you just bashed their ideas and efforts. You said :"They also seemed to each has a different grievance to air, and some were in poor taste" again, you are being judgments. Everyone has their own issues with the organization. At least this was a great step for each person healing. As for your last paragraph, again, you have such "great ideas", then do them and quit judging everyone else and their efforts. No one wants to be controlled anymore nor to be "organized". If you want to do that, then that's great, but running everyone through the mud makes you look pretty bad. You seriously need to apologize to everyone you mentioned in this thread. I hope you do well with what you decide. It's a journey. You have a VERY long way to go. I was born into it and stay for many many many years. I personally won't follow any one person. I won't be responding anymore. I don't deal with negative people that want to act just like what I got out of. Have a great day everyone. :) The protest got their attention https://freefromwatchtower.blogspot.com/2017/11/watchtower-defends-two-witness-rule.html
You want everyone else to use discernment because you are "groggy" but you aren't will to give that to anyone else.
You are also wrong about no one listened and it did nothing. They even had a announcement and many still in the org, hidden, still in the congregations, said in an earlier statement that they got overran with questions after everyone left.
