Cha ching, those are good points. Often the extremism is what causes people to drift further away instead of toward them. At an important time for us, me and my husband heard the 'no one can really love you unless they also love Jehovah' drama, and it pissed us off, because a family member who wasn't a witness had recently died, and he would have ripped his own heart out for us. It was like, my God! They are so manipulative and blatant liars, just because they want to hold onto their control!!
Maybe that will happen for James's daughter too!
