    I actually go to church and pray...and I BELIEVE in it!

    Me too!

    Oh, and I vote too.

    We celebrate birthdays with gifts & cake.

    We have fun on weekends and don't feel guilty.

    We travel around as roadies for our son's rock band ( www.treeofwoeband.com ) and sit in smoky bars and drink beer and other alcoholic beverages (but I guess most JW's do that anyway...the alcohol thing).

    I got two tattoo's and I LOVE THEM.

    I told them to give me blood if I needed it when I recently had my knee replaced.

    Blondie: I have used the F word and sometimes it feels good because it is usually in relation to some elder I see lurking around town.

    I treat everyone I meet with the respect they deserve as human beings and not as poor, doomed & not-worthy-of-the-new-system scum. I love people now more than I ever did as a JW.

    I use my middle finger whenever I pass the local (or any) KH.

    I read any and all anti-JW literature I can get my hands on.

    I celebrate being FREE every day and am most thankful for this time in my life.

    I've got a lot of catching up to do having wasted over 40 years of my life. But as they say...the best revenge is being happy.

    P.S. I don't think I believe in God. OH MY GOD!!! (Yup...I say that too! Shocked )

    Honestly consider scientific theories such as evolution and say, "Yeah, that's pretty well right on," and not feel terribly guilty for seeing it as it is.

    Vote and help supervise elections.

    Stand for the national anthem and salute the flag.

    Serve on a juries.

    Finished my education and got my degree.

    Celebrate Holidays and birthdays.

    Go to Mass.

    Got engaged to a Russian Orthodox woman and we often spend the weekends together unchaperoned.

    Visit "Apostate" sites.

    Guess thats about it since I never had a desire to smoke, do drugs, or use profanity.

    Well, I bought myself a two-door car. I listen to worldly music. I date a worldly man...without a chaperone!! Sometimes, I confess, I even let him kiss me on the lips. I went to college, and I proudly attended my graduation. I cuss, I'm materialistic, I'm a feminist, I refer to my creator as "She", I told an elder that he had no earthly or heavenly authority over me, I registered to vote, I organize charity fundraisers, hang out in bars, play the lottery, hang out at apostate websites...

    Good thing I don't believe in Armageddon anymore, or I'd be bumming.
