Hi. I'm new here too. Been lurking for months, but joined a couple weeks ago. I am currently a JW living with my parents (I'm 19), going to college (thank God it's not the old days) and knowlegeable to the dubious history of the org. My dad is an elder and my mom a regular pioneer, so leaving the org while still living in their house is out of the question (though overall they're fairly liberal minded). I appreciate this forum because I can associate with people who share my views on the org. I still give the occasional talk at the KH and the parents drag me out in the field ministry ever so often, but I've already given them serious hints about not liking the org. (told my dad I didn't want to be an elder when I grow up, and I've repeatedly told them meeting and especially field service aren't as important as advertised). They see me 'drifting away' and no doubt are trying to draw me back in. In the meantime, I'm enjoying my relative freedom of thought I have now, and when I leave the house I should be totally liberated!
