"They were forced to get baptized by their parents. They were in the cult but were never gullible." - minimus
This describes me "to a T". Even as a young boy I knew that the Bible and the theology of Jehovah's Witnesses just did not make sense. But I 'played the game' in order to survive. I played it so well that there was talk of making me an Elder at 18 years old back in the early '70s and with my Bethel application was included a letter from the Circuit Overseer and the Body of Elders stating that I should be considered for the position of Circuit Overseer after my 4 years was up at Bethel. Such is the long, twisted, complicated and rocky road that we all travel in order to survive and get by in life.
