I was raised a JW, second generation, in a divided household. First talk at 6, baptized and conducting a book study at 12. I was not a butt kisser, therefore never became a ministerial servant or elder. Disfellowshipped twice, reinstated once. Last booted in 2001, found out the truth about the organization here in 2004. I went to college after leaving, and have 2 degrees.
