One thing I don't miss about being a jobo, is those families that ruled the congregations.
I've seen how the elders protected their own using our old friend, nepotism.
EG. The son of an elder that stole a car and was prosecuted but 'let off' because it was kept secret and all his relatives were elders in the same congregation.
It certainly went on when I was an elder but I wasn't one of the 'IN' crowd. I know it still goes on.
I do not miss those egotistical and power loving hypocrites.
