i am officially apostate.
i found out this exactly 35 years ago. i had quit the cult 10 years before--but my born in wife remained behind.
towards the end of 1980 i started an affaire with a friend--a married sister. she got d/f for it---but--apparently ( i wasnt there )--it was announced that i couldnt be d/f---because i wasnt a jw . however--it was announced i was an apostate!
i never knew what it meant when i found out-----till years later another dub-friend told me it meant i had joined another religion !!! as if one nut case cult wasnt enough.
so--i was an apostate--for adultery. aah well--if it makes them happy.......
