Raised by JW parents; baptized at a very early age at urging of a father who was afraid that I would be killed during Armageddon if not immersed. That was many decades ago. Over a lifetime found many JWs who seemed to be at the bottom of the social-economic scale, partly because of their lack of education and partly because some plainly were jerks. Often felt embarrassed by JWs' conduct and appearance. Long wondered what was the matter with me because I felt embarrassed by "The Truth?"
