    So yesterday a family friend who was never age overs witness give me a phone call. He says that he is quite upset with me and wants to give me a chance to explain why I'm treating my father so portly. Mind you I have not seen my father or mother in about 3 years and they refused to talk to me except for the occaisional crazy letter that my mother will send.

    Anyway my The family friend stated that he spoke to my mother and brother and they both told him that because I choose to leave the religion and in turn separate myself from the family it has caused my 80 something year old father a tremendous amount of stress and she is becoming sick and they're not sure how much longer he will be with us.

    Shoot Felipe nothing they say really bothers me much anymore but the fact that I'm being accused of slowly killing my father because I've decided to make a decision that's better from my own family is actually quite frustrating to me.

    Give you hours after having of the conversation with our family friend I get a call from my older brother who then begins to be raped me and tells me that I should accept responsibility for the fact that I am the cause of our ejean father's poor health and that leaving Jehovah causes problems not only for me but for those who love me.

    This is the only time since I have decided to leave that c***** organization that I've actually wanted to put hands on somebody is much as I have at any other point in my life

    I was speaking into my phone To type the message and it totally screwed it up. I meant to say a family friend that was never a Jehovah's witness

    Yes, definitely spell check before posting, hard to understand in places . . . But I'm sorry for your situation. It's always the same, the abusers playing the victim.

    Yup, I've been accused of the same by my siblings.

    LoL SilentBuddah I spat my tea out over some of that!!!

    I'm sorry though I'd be mad as all hell too.

    I hope you put him straight about it.

    ToesUp JW land, it is ALWAYS your fault. Tell them that maybe belonging to a abusive/destructive cult is killing him. Don't let them get to you. They try and bully people. I had it happen by a family member too. You control how much power you give them.

    It's certainly a hard situation. We are in similar circumstances. Parents are depressed and in pain because of our choice.

    They forget that by choosing this cult many years ago, they themselves inflicted similar pain and anguish on their own extended family.

    Keep your head up.

    If people make the endeavor to shun their own family members, instigated by a religious cult, then they own the burden of responsibility.

    Shocking how this religious organization has broken up so many families, must be in the millions by now over the last 100 years.

    he is getting old and he will die because that is what happens to human beings. THAT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. He had wrong expectations and that is not your responsibility. They refuse to communicate with you and you are causing stress for living your life on your terms.

    Hard to muster up any sympathy for that kind of nonsense.

    Send him a sympathy card about how much you regret that he was under the illusion that he would never grow old and die.
