    I have been taking to my father about some of these things and my mom - not to change their minds just to sort some out - but that is not safe. I asked my mom “ may I ask you one question ?” She said fine , but you know how I feel about Jevovahs organization and the imperfect men.”’I just realized that talking to anyone I know is not safe either intellectually, etc. I also just realized that as mention in other responses -it’s a waste of time and energy- I have to take care of myself. I am close to my parents but that page might be turning as they sense my discomfort with the JW teachings, my wife’s family knows something I’m sure. This is sad - I am getting pre-shunned - for wanting to know truth and facts only.

    The number of adherents do not make it real.

    The fuzzy and warm feeling does not make it the truth.

    The mind control is amazing - not even willing to look at facts- but I learned my lesson. Again thank you as this is my safe space for revealing the “ truth” about my true feelings.

    CovertSadJW feel free to ask questions here, make new posts if you want, you'll find alot of support and answers here.

    I dont risk talking to any JWs about this stuff except here and 1 very close semi-awakened family member that wont make a thing of it. Everyone else is off limits, at least until I draw my line in the sand - im pimo for now but at my wits end with these nutters.

    Sometimes It contains irrational answer to very important question. Here is one:

    "As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

    “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him." (John 9:1-3)

    Jesus just missed an important opportunity to answer a very important question. There is no glory in God creating this man blind from birth and after many years giving him sight. What about other people who are born with similar disabilities?
