For some reason, my current posts have been dropping everything after the "quote" portions. I will have to do something different.
I had asked if "a watcher" wonders why s/he cannot get information from the organization.

I found this forum when I was heavily doing internet research to free myself from the Watchtower. I may have already been prime to learn the truth about "the truth" but this site took my growing doubt and helped me learn so much more. I did not know that Fred Franz' nephew had written a book. I didn't know anything much about the library card excuse. I knew a little about Watchtower charging for parking at conventions, but I didn't realize just how deceitful they were about it.
I am sure plenty of folks have come away with many doubts answered, which helped solidify their feelings about the religion.
