Chook, I admire your boldness and fearlessness. I do hope that the CO keeps his word to your about not using your statements against you (such as in a JC). The is the possibility that he could instruct the BOE to "leave Chook alone -- because he is not promoting his apostate views and he is not claiming to be a JW". I fear though that it is more likely that he will go back to the BOE and say "We were shocked at all the apostate ideas that Chook has espoused. You know, the direction from the GB is that a person does NOT have to be actively promoting their apostate ideas, just believing things contrary to what the Slave tells us is an 'apostasy" from the Truth. You have no choice but to keep the Congregation clean by forming a JC."
I think this is a great example on "How NOT to Fade". Good luck. I hope they decide not to bother trying to "snatch you out of the fire" because that more often leads to someone being "burned at the stake". . . . Doc
