My husband has been keeping me informed all day. Including reddit and resignation stats. I have one question though, how do having all these resignations help Protect the Children? This initially started to protect kids and youth during interviews. Now what happens? If everyone who had a stake in th...

I'm just saying there is more than meets the eye for those who want to look further, and that's very much unlike any previous church publication on its history.
In a weird way, that's a huge step for us.

Re: Jehovah's Witnesses, return and report

A friend of my husband is JW and experienced shunning. During her shunning she took advantage of the disconnect. However, something drew her back. She's never said what, but once was allowed back in the fold she has returned with zeal.

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

That alone shows grandstanding. It saddens me, since I see it as a radical departure from how he started. When Saul Alinsky wrote his "Rules for Radicals" his first rule was look, act, and become like the other. He wrote his treatise in the 1970's. When hippie clothes, long hair, and bohemian attir...

Re: YSA Fireside

the sudden illumination people are moving much too fast or are misguided. The painful part, as you point out earlier, the sudden illumination people are of little concern to anyone. Sure they may be blind right now, but it was their fault. At least as the over arching narrative stands. Sadly the sm...

Re: YSA Fireside

What of the people caught in the middle? What are we going to do for them? I think this is why I keep attending. It's a stupid reason, but I will be damned if you get to exile me. I try to speak up gently. But I can't yet drop the rope and be okay. Good for the youth that will be inoculated. As for...
