    This is what my daughter ended up writing back;

    "I am surprised that your friendship with that person is conditional. If you would end a friendship over whom someone is in love with, then perhaps you are not really her friend at all. True friendship is not conditional upon such things. I think that your friend would be sad to know that you could not be friends anymore. I think that your friend probably wanted to tell you for herself & hear it only from her, but she knew that you would not want to be her friend anymore & that made her sad, and it is obvious that she was right because you are questioning ending a friendship with her.

    Perhaps you should evaluate whether you are this person's friend. Then do what you want. If you are not her friend, then end the so-called friendship. If you are her friend, then continue to be a friend. Continue to stand by her, just as she would always do for you."

    Dear, "Friend,"

    I recieved your letter. I have decided to follow my heart. Perhaps, we should just leave it to Jehovah.

    May you one day find peace and happiness,

    Minimus's Daughter

    So heartfelt, so very touching. Richard

    First of all I thought that this was a little girl that wrote this but then I realised by the fact that she is married this is obviously not the case (although we know what the witnesses are like with kids dont we?!)

    I actually feel sorry for the author of the letter, poor girl ! But at least your daughter has got out, another one saved - whoopeeee

    My suggestion - go to porn sites and sign the little bitch up for "Lesbian Teen sex in your mail daily" - see how her bethelite hubby likes that one - its a trick I have tried many times

    alot of these brothers are no good. they chase whores fornicate secretly with other sisters watch pornography and spy out the congregation for loose sisters. some are filthy and have done nasty things in their past just like anyone else. BEWARE the label christian is no guarantee what you're getting is clean.

    Here is the latest response from my daughter's friend; OK, enough with the third person here, I'm getting confused. Trust me, I do and will always love you as one of my friends, but I certainly can't stand by and act like everything is the same knowing that this is what you have been and are doing. I just don't get it. Do you honestly have any way to justify doing this? It's 100% wrong and we certainly hear that enough. I feel like if you'd come to me sooner about it maybe things would be different. Maybe it could've been stopped before it turned into love. You're cheating your friends, family and yourself out of what should be one of the best parts of your life. Not to mention how Jehovah feels about the whole thing. I guess all I can say is that my heart is broken at the thought of possibly losing you over a worldly guy. me

    minimus, your daughter is nicer than me
