    Great news!


    As of the 9th of June, me and my dear wife Mrs. Eden handed over our letters of disassociation at Bethel in Portugal, thus making official our departure from the Jehovah's Witnesses. It will likely be announced on the next mid-week meeting.

    As for our son, because he attended the National Defense Day on the 11th of March, in spite of a letter sent previously stating that his attendance was a matter of conscience and didn't imply his disconnection from the Jehovah's Witnesses (he has been inactive for nearly 3 years), he was forcibly disassociated last week. Just in time for his 19th birthday.

    We are thrilled.

    Soon I will post a translation of our disassociation letters, the story around it, and a picture of us as well.

    Just wanted to share the "good news" of my kingdom.

    As painful as this may be, you won't regret the decision.

    Congratulations for leaving that blasted cult.

    Question--isn't attendance compulsory and jws are not exempt? From <<that link, I see nothing objectionable to jw beliefs. You just show up and they tell you all about being in the military? What am I missing?

    Attendance to the DDN is a military duty for all Portuguese citizens over 18 years old.
