ENOUGH IS ENOUGH:
Look, the religion make a huge mistake when it told people for decades not to get decent jobs or careers.
Now there are too many JWs who are poor because they never prepared for retirement. The religion has no social programs whatsoever so naturally they are going to tell people to seek out relatives and social services.
When you say congregations ‘should take care of their own’ you must mean somebody going around with an envelope cornering people to give money. Well, I am somebody who was criticized for having a full-time job. I was shunned and not invited. If I had listened to the Witnesses I wouldn’t be Retired today. What makes you or anybody else think anybody has a right to pester ME for money for people there who never worked - after I got knocked for working?? And this would be constant and never ending.
Look! the ‘system’ there (if you want to call it that) - doesn’t work.
I’m glad I’m Out of the JW religion as I would never tolerate this garbage and the hypocrisy in this dysfunctional religion.
