Government officials cited the Jehovah's Witnesses' exclusionary policies as justification for the punishment
Now do Scientology!
My husband of 10 years is a lifelong JW. I'm a lifelong atheist. While I don't understand how someone so smart (my husband) can be so fucking stupid, what I really don't understand is how his daughters, who were raised JWs, can simply stop going to services and being involved in the church but still be welcome in that community. They openly celebrate holidays and birthdays and are not raising their children as JWs. They just...stopped. But when my husband (when he was married to his former wife, also a JW) had an extramarital affair, OH BOY WATCH OUT DON'T TALK TO HIM!!!!! He continued to go to "meetings" where he sat in the back and no one either spoke to or acknowledged him. After about a year of this they "allowed" him back in. It's. So. Stupid.
He is blessed...he's married to me. ;)
I am also blessed; I found the love of my life. Love is the most important thing in your bible, yes? Where did you pick up the hatred?
So did we land here instead of OnlySky? I was sick of OnlySky.
