A lot stay in for the social club and to keep their family.
This is true. It was certainly true for me. The GB has to make leaving intolerable, how can they do that? By holding your family hostage against you.
The warm fuzzy feeling is missed by me i must admit. It was nice to "belong" to something even though i had doubts.
Young ones are dropping off little by little. I know 3 from the hall i grew up in that are living in sin and still are very much included in witness parties and family. They arnt being shunned despite the latest ruling from the RC to shun inactive ones. They faded for only about 6 months before doing this, their family must not want to lose touch which is fantastic.
Im seeing a lot of apathy with most people though. The JW's are shooting themselves in the foot by being so "cliquey" because the ones not in the popular crowd are just leaving.
I look forward to the death of this cult in my lifetime. At best it'll become a new religion in about 20 years.
