Being raised a jokehovian is stifling. You do lose out on much fun--holidays, vacation time, and class trips. Also, you get forced to do field circus on your weeks off from school, and there are too many rules that make you suffer. Along with forced boasting session attendance.
But, put it in perspective. I wonder how many other cults, and really devout xian parents, do the same things or even worse. I have heard of children in other xian denominations, even in the cat lick church, being horribly abused because the devout parents wanted to beat "the devil" out of them. They also lose out on many opportunities, and as much fun, as the jokehovians do.
And one of the worst possible experiences can be to missionary parents. This is as true with any denomination as with the jokehovians. You see a missionary couple, usually white going into Africa, staying there for a long time. While there, they have a child that is an "Oops". While this may not spell the end of their mission, the child is forced into a missionary lifestyle. And, when the child comes "of age" (and it may not be as old as 18 in some of those countries), they are indentured to the church and left while the parents go back home. As the child was born in that country, they will be full citizens there (and not citizens in the parents' home country). They also miss out on life experiences, usually under far worse conditions than most jokehovians have to suffer, and never get to see their own people once their parents leave for home (and, aside their parents, never at all). Those people never get the opportunity to do anything outside church.
And yes, I do hate the jokehovian witless cult. But, in perspective, anyone that is stupid enough to devote one's whole soul into that xian filth (in any denomination, even the cat lick church) can provide equally bad experiences (or even worse) for their children.
