OMFG I attended the same cong, my younger brother was one of his best friends.Our familys were/are close.Of course I never knew he had been DFed, I have been faded long time.I do feel for his aged parents, we know the Borg won't care about them. His Mum was one of the warmest loving people I remember.
The fallout from ARC continuues. That's two from the ARC personally known to me.The other was an elder when I was a boy, same congregation!
My BIL was also DFed for kid fiddling....another suppressed gay gone wrong. But that is another story, fortunately my sister was then able to divorce him "scripturaly"
Maybe I know you too stuckinarut2 ?
Edit: No stuck, the perpetrators father was never an elder, in fact he used to criticize the Borg quite strongly, his wife and kids were "in" the father tolerated it for sake of his marriage. My father however was an elder for a few years,and a near neighbor of the family, he probably knows all about it!
Edit 2; Well that is today gone, the floodgates of memory are breached ! Wife will have to be patient now, the JW crap runs deep!
