Most know that bullying has occurred in schools and the workplace. I haven't seen it in a church. Hope he makes it.
There's plenty of it in the church world. That's what holds some of them together in the first place. I'm not talking just JW's but real 'Christian' churches too. Especially the fundys.
My Own Religion

I grew up a JW and didn't like it. I felt like an out cast because we were poor. material things aren't suppose to matter but they lie, bunch of hypocrites. Couldn't do a lot of stuff because it was against the religion but they could because it was considered worldly but yet they could because they were elders. We were always being told what to do and what we couldn't be careful or they would we might get disfellowship. I saw them doing wrong but it was okay for them and not us. Always watching what were doing so they could tell us we were doing wrong. They discriminate a lot and I always felt tension in the kingdom hall, I hated going to the kingdom hall and then book study's too. We were poor so all of are clothes were goodwill always used never new. I couldn't wait to leave home just to get away from that religion. Now I don't believe in religion just believe in God and I enjoy celebrating the holidays with my kids and now grandchildren. My husband doesn't understand because he was raised a catholic. I don't think there should be religion just everybody believe in god. I avoid them as much as I can because they are very persistent and especially if you have a relative that's one they always are trying to bring me back so that makes me avoid some of my family, I hate people to preach to me and tell me what is right and wrong. I know what right and wrong I am sure God doesn't mind if we celebrate are birthday, Easter, Halloween, Christmas etc. I brings are family closer. I sorry I never took my kids to church that much because wasn't catholic or Jehovah. I have read the bible and probably know more about biblical history than normal the bible is pretty much the same in most religions just interpreted different. JW are bully's for trying to make you live unhappy and everything is wrong.
