    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!

    Sounds like a good visit!

    Being kind and interested in how family is doing is always better then trying to explain your complete disinterest in anything related to their toxic beliefs.

    Thanks again for all your kind words. I slept like a baby last night and all the anger I had

    against that organization have diminished. I hope that all you kind folks here that is going

    through shunning by love ones will be resolved and reunited with love ones ,it is toxic.

    The numbers and members here would be very small if the GB would stop poisoning the

    minds of our love ones.

    Great outcome.

    It sounds like their relationship is based on love, not judgement.

    Her husband sounds like a sincere guy, who is not going to allow his family to be manipulated by the society into innapropriate behaviour!

    SO heartwarming to read this thread James.

    I am so happy for you and very happy that grandchild got to meet you!!

    Wow - what a promising outcome! Keep us posted. As you commented, there is no rush - lots of other things for you and your daughter to catch up on as opportunity allows.

    This could be 2-fold purposed:

    1. Try to lead you back into the JW fold. The Org is bleeding profusely and trying all stops to increase their ranks.
    2. Show kids/hubby (?) how miserable ex-JWs live, consequences of leaving Jokehova.

    Be lovingly cautious.

    Daughter went to college, and became a nurse. DING! DING! DING!

    As a college student, she learned critical thinking skills.

    As a nurse, she has had to deal with the "Blood issue", HLC, JW patients, etc FIRST HAND. My JW mother was an RN for 35 years. She said it's amazing how many times she hung blood/fractions on a JW patient, and was req'd to keep her mouth shut (HIPPA laws of course).

    Your daughter MIGHT be slightly awake. Your JW Brother on the other hand? What an azzhole. Wave your daughter and grandkids in front of your face like a carrot, then make sure you know you're not invited? I'd never speak to that manipulative douchebag again, nor would I be at his funeral. F' him!

    WingCommander: I thought of that last night, "Blood issue", and my brother waving my

    daughter and grandkids in my face. I'am thankful that he encourage her to come by to see me,

    but on the other hand at the family gathering my ex-JW wife and her husband was there. My

    non-JW sister said it made her sick to see my ex and her husband there and I can't step foot into

    his house. But you know I'am fine with it, I'am just happy to have my daughter back.

    I like to add this I see something different with my family. Both my sons followed me out but my two

    daughters are close to their mom so they stayed in. My youngest JW daughter and her JW husband told

    me they will never shun me, she told her husband don't talk about JW stuff around my dad.LOL

    When my daughter came to visit Sat. when we embraced all the other kids were also tear eyed,

    my daughters, there husband and my grandkids. The one son-in law that told me he will never shun me

    grabbed me as they were leaving and whispered in my ear, pop we are family, right.

  • WingCommander

    OMG, a whole other layer of insult, in having your EX-WIFE and her new JW husband there? Wow....just wow.

    No way would I ever tolerate such incredible behaviour. These people have no shame, because they also lack EMPATHY. A true trait of sociopaths. Like I said, that "Brother" would no longer be any "brother" of mine.
