"That's me biggest problem, my family are all heavies within the borg, mostly Elders, Ms's or married to one. My grandfather is one of the BIG heavies in the Australian Bethel."
Ahh... it's not Lehaa, it's 'Princess Leia of the WT Kingdom' :-)
Yeah, you'd be back quick given your standing... but, how long for? You'd be marked for life and crucified when you deviate from the party line in the slightest.
Set the example for your family in outing yourself! Be proud! We should have an XJW float in the G&L Madi Gras!!!
I went to Ingleburn twice. The second time it gave me the creeps, I was on the way out back then. I smited them in the eye in the most painful manner to them... I declined a contribution for staying there two nights. They showed me where the contribution box was about five times just to be subtle about it. They never knew I didn't put in, but I did!!
But it was also the first time I saw the Internet - a guy had a machine down in the bowls of the place watching a promo clip from CNN, over and over again... he was about the only sane one I met there.
They had cumquats for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the ritual over prayers and talks and who eats first and all that was unsettling.
I met a few of the big boys over time. Bill Whitehead - I think he ended up there later on - he was a good guy. When I was only young he'd remember my name from year to year at the DC and ask how things were. It was almost like he was interested! I think it was his brother, another good guy, who got DF'd while he was our CO in WA.
I can't remember many of the others names... blocked out?? Mostly they gave me the creeps anyhow, and I couldn't wait to get out of their company. I rarely heard a good word about any of them from people in the know.
I'm so glad I'm unequivicly (sp?) out, OUT, OUT!!!
