    I'm none of those. I am not now, nor have I ever been a member. But, I plan on writing my master's thesis on the Witnesses, probably on their approach to education from the Russell era to today. I can accept the Bible as God's word. I do not accept the Watchtower's approach to it or its authoritarianism. But then I have yet to find a religion that makes sense to me.

    I really do not know what my Status is, I faded many years ago, but was told a few Months back by an Elder that I had " Crossed a line", maybe because of what I had written on Social Media, although what I write is always Truth, but, as we all know JW's "Cannot Handle The Truth".

    I presume I have not been officially Disassociated, but I am definitely " marked" by that Elder at least. Which affects me not one bit, as I have no desire to ever meet in any way with the guy.

    So I rather like the Label " Faded and Marked" as my Status.

    6. Very content P.I.M.O.

    JW GoneBad, you might well be a Very content P.I.M.O.. I would question that conclusion, but I don't know you. Let's just say there cannot possibly be a whole category of such people.

    I am a twenty year+ Walkaway/Fader from the JW religion.

    Over the years I contacted all my ‘friends’ to let them know what my issues were with regard to the religion’s intolerable views towards careers/jobs, etc. and how I’m glad I never fell for any of the high pressure they tried to put on younger people especially women in the congregation back then.

    I think everyone knows I’m Out and not coming back!

    I'm inactive. I stay under the radar to spry and destroy.

    4. One Sunday morning in June, 2001, stopped going after a moment of clarity during the WT study when I realized I didn't belong there anymore.

    #5. WE have been out about 12 years. Not DF'ed or DA but shunned by cong. and family. I tend to be more activist but my spouse not. I am waiting for the organization to implode - sooner the better. We are not religious and would find going back into the KH triggering. Not spiritual and have no interest in other religious practices. Intellectually I can allow for people to practice their chosen religion but on an emotional level I have a slight disdain. Hope I don't show that on the outside. Once we were out for awhile we could finally admit that a lot of the stuff in the Bible is creepy and not believeable. The complexity of life makes me acknowledge the existence of a higher power or first cause but no evidence that he is interested in condtions on the earth and definitely not a personal diety.

    Good contact with JW family. Last activity in 2009. Doubts since 1995 generations change.

    I woke up and walked away. No desire to return.
