The WTS has gone off the rails and is "unrepentantly" hateful. They are blatantly requiring mothers and fathers to disown/hate their own children that they have loved and cared for since birth simply because they don't comply with the orgs demands. How is this love? Sick bastards.
I despise this organization that has taken my extended family simply because I decided to leave after seeing how corrupt and wrong the organization is. I left after being an elder for 7 years, not because of pride or wrongdoing, but instead by objecting to how the org is trying to cover up child abuse.
My two sons will never know their grandmother because 7 men in Brooklyn have decreed that my wife and I are evil and against God. What is interesting is my wife and I have never slept around, never tried any drug, we drink in moderation, don't lie, have never stolen or hurt someone physically, we don't curse or even have ever gotten a speeding ticket. Despite this we have lost all of our friends and family since we stopped attending meetings because we couldn't agree with the policy of not reporting child abusers to the police and the Governing Body's crazy interpretation of scripture.
Screw these people. It is their loss in my opinion. They would be lucky to know my awesome, smart,and kind kids. They would be lucky to have my wife as a friend. We will never go back because I won't ever teach my kids to hate.
Leaving this organization was the best thing we ever did even if it cost us our families looking back. At least it won't cost us our families moving forward.
Ps I am traveling for work and happen to be staying in a convention city. I am surrounded in this hotel by witnesses who are ready to go to their convention tomorrow and be instructed to shun their dearly loved ones. (From their perspective I am just any other person staying for business, they have no idea of my background). None of these families and couples seem to be happy. They have their badges on their clothing as directed. They all seem to be tired, and going through the motions. I looked at several badges to see if they were from a cong I recognized and EVERYONE who wore a badge refused to look me in the eye and explain why they were in the city.
Way to go watchtower! You have a bunch of people ashamed to celebrate being a part of you, yet they are willing to cut off the most important people in their lives because of your cruel instructions. Sounds like a winning recipe for a "generation" of miserable and broken people.
