I was raised in it. There were questions, but the psychological abuse prevented me from ever really getting answers. I am naturally a logical thinker in spite of my decades of indoctrination, and my brain just never could get passed things that were glaringly huge issues. Problem was I had too many mental issues to break through, but inside something was happening.
I wouldn't know how far I'd gone until I recently found the issues that were never reported on by JW.org (that I can find evidence of) that happened back in 2015 in Australia. Why hadn't they told us? They always jump on opps to show how Satan was attacking "us", so this really flipped a switch. I had to find out. And I watched the questioning of Jackson. And I read the full 130ish page document published by the Aus Royal Commission. The repeated lying and constant dodging Mr. Jackson did would have been enough that I would have walked away just from it alone. But then the details of how the decision to hide sexual abusers was based not on a desire to (however twisted it might have been) follow scriptural interpretation, but literally what they felt they could get away with based on legal technicalities. That just....I couldn't anymore.
So many things now I'm able to process in my head. Why is even looking at "apostate" info a threat to one's spiritual well-being if people are free to see anything when they are searching on their own for a religion and some still come to JW? That shouldn't be possible. Why the focus on hours reported? Why the lies stating "we" never petitioned men for money when they used to sell the literature? Why so many things that now make perfect sense. Because it's not about righteousness. It's just about control and validation of their hierarchy.
I know. This stuff is obvious to people here. But it helps to put it to words. Ignoring issues has been my life for decades. Now I'm free to think, and it feels amazing.
