Thank you for an informative Post, Mrs Obfuscate.
I am sure that many of us when we first had our eyes opened made the mistake of talking endlessly about the false doctrines and other problems with the Org to our JW loved ones until they would shut off within seconds of us starting a diatribe,
Mr Obfus. obviously had the wisdom to take a more slowly slowly and oblique approach which worked. I think what helped was that you were not completely in thrall to the JW Org and so were somewhat ready.
It was similar for my wife,she was ready to cease attending, but it took an unusual piece of information coming her way by accident to start her awareness of the total extent of the problems of the Org.
Thank you once again.
