i left the organisation 5 years ago and this morning came across some old photographs from my jw days.
most photographs were taken in the kh, such as marriages, and at assemblies and many are of people once considered close friends - but now i find it hard to look at them.
i asked claire, my wife, if she would like to look at them and she said she couldn't bear to, so they went in the bin.

i've not hidden the fact that i'm an atheist, something i've come to through what i believe is thorough research and experience.
however, while i no longer consider myself religious i do believe i am spiritual.. i do not believe the universe was created by an all powerful being, but that the universe is that all powerful being.
in other words, we are all part of the universe, as are all sentient and insentient bodies, and we are subject to its laws.

we all know the majority of the society's elders are absolutely useless when it comes to dealing with family matters and as i was sat here reading a number of posts it suddenly occurred to me that watchtower may have started to speed up its own demise.. before i exited my old congregation a young elder was appointed.
he was married without children (they don't want any).
after i exited i heard of another young elder who was appointed (they, too, have no children and i don't think they want any either).. the service overseer was a young elder (a right big head and son of the p.o.).

many of you will know that my beloved claire is a physiotherapist (physical therapist, usa).. the other day she came home and asked "everything o.k?".
i replied: "no!".
her: "what's the matter?".

i've come to love and cherish much of the wisdom that emanates from the dear ladies of this forum and believe watchtower boobed in making all women subservient to the men.
so, do you think women would make good elders?.

watchtower, it is well known, runs on fear.
its members are scared to death of upsetting jehovah (a.k.a.watchtower).
when one starts to have misgivings about being a jw they are often jolted by references to 'apostate' being made.
