Bible Student Movements + surprise announcement from me

    Hello to all POMOs, PIMOs and lurkers!

    I would firstly like to introduce myself, as I should have done in my initial post. I will remain anonymous for this website. I am a critical agnostic. I am not totally against belief in a God, but at the same time I'm not totally for it. I woke up a few years ago when I fully realised that the Borg suppresses people sexually and I was one of the victims. I have now left and have freedom.

    I have read topics on exjw websites concerning Bible Student splinter groups with great interest. In fact, I've visited two of their websites and I was shocked to know they are still in existence, when Watchtower claimed that many died out. As far as my research has gone, most of these groups are still existing today, albeit out of the general public eye. I'd like to request any information you have on existing Bible Student groups. Websites, literature, ways to contact them, etc. Either comment here or send privately to my inbox.

    The whole reason why I'm doing this is, out of admiration for my biggest influence, Cedars (Lloyd Evans), I want to research and compile my own findings concerning Judge Rutherford into a series of posts on this website. I want to explore the aftermath of the name change in 1931 and give evidence of Rutherford's dishonesty and faliure. The announcement is this, I declare a scathing and very uncomfortable series of topics for still in jws to read entitled The Judge on Trial: Uncovering the Real JF Rutherford

    Upcoming in a few days is:

    Part 1: Association with Russell and the Bible Students

    Ohhhh im so sorry, you lost me at ‘admiration for my biggest influence cedars’.

    porno6780, I like a man who blows his own trumpet - something you do well. It makes it all the more comprehensible that you admire Cedars. Birds of feather and all that...

    Because of your stated intention to write on Rutherford, you will already know that literally screeds have already been written on Rutherford.

    I look forward to reading yours with all your references made clear.

    I was amused by your reflection that yours will be "a scathing and very uncomfortable series of topics for still-in JWs to read". The horse bolted on that one decades ago. Your comment implies JWs would even bother to read what is written which is very unlikely indeed.

    BTW, I'd be interested in you could add anything new to the voluminous writing on Rutherford that has not been said before.

    Okay steve2,

    I'll abandon my project. I'm not blowing my own trumpet. Fine, if everything's been said then the topic is well and truly closed.

    I apologize to anyone in advance.

    Ps. I do love total strangers berating people whom they judge only by words available on the screen. This is what I mean by irritable exjws. Let's chill.

    Nothing wrong with giving credit to people who helped wake you up. Don't you want me here? I'm sure you'd prefer me remaining out of the Borg. Unfortunately, this is what you get!

    Oh the eager spirit of newbiness!

    More power to you, and may you keep researching and learning and sharing for the good of the oppressed and of the hardened ones filled to the brim with sarcasm, such as I.

  • pomo6780

    Just because I'm a 'newbie' here does not mean I'm intellectually lower than you in apostate-ness. I want to annoy everyone now by refusing to do what I said I'd do. And I'm not going to offend you for this. Bye.

    This topic is closed. Any moderators, please remove this. or anyone looking here, just ignore it. I sense that this could end up becoming a heap of nonsense.

  • _Morpheus

    Lol oh my, sensitive much, pomo? I never said or implied, in any way shape or form, that you wernt welcome or that i wished you were still in the cult.

    Hmmm.... you remind me of someone... a douche who used to post here and was also super sensative.... if only i could remember his name. Something like oaks.. or firs... some kind of vegetation at any rate. I bet you’d get along famously with him.
