Been lurking since early this year. There are many of us out there (at least in this area, central U.S.) who are waking up and crossing the line to talk to each other about it. In our area, several elders, ministerial servants and pioneers are actively and openly sharing info with each other daily. Quite a few of us are openly awake and making changes. Recently stepped down from serving, former pioneer and lots of other "privileges" on many levels. My wife woke up (thankfully!) a few months after I did and dropped off the pioneer list. Still working through a lot of stuff and flying under the radar as friends try to get their families to wake up, but won't be stepping foot in a KH again. Now we are planning our life 2.0 without the Borg.
Which leads me to a BIG thank you. Thanks to all of you here, jehovahs-witness.com John Cedars, JWfacts.com, Barbara Anderson and everyone who has taken the time to scan old publications, break down things like 607, kept updates coming about the Royal Commission and who have shared your stories and experiences. We had already been questioning the crazy changes and the push for loyalty to the Borg, but being able to really break down all the doctrinal problems and pulling back the veil on the disgusting track record of child abuse made it easy to sort out that we have been involved in a cult. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Never underestimate who is reading and lurking as they are also sorting and researching and trying to figure out how to get out. If our area is any kind of indicator of what is typical, the Borg is worried for very good reason.
