You were embarrassed to be a JW.

Indeed.

Therein lies the crux of your angst.

This is about the most honest statement i have ever heard you say, Hoodwinker.

You're talking out of your behind again.

Df'd as a minor?

What if they're not baptized yet?. Many are not.

Children can be disfellowshipped if they have been baptised:

>> If the disfellowshiped one is a minor child, the parents cannot disassociate themselves from him. He is still part of the household. God’s laws require that the parental responsibility be carried out. Even Caesar’s laws require that minor children be provided for by the parents. So the parents are still under command from God to correct and discipline the child. This must be done by using Biblical principles. Parents should require that the minor attend the family study and listen, although he would not participate in the discussion with the group. The parents should strongly recommend his reading the Bible and publications explaining the Bible, such as the Watchtower and Awake! magazines and other Bible helps. If the disfellowshiped minor has questions to ask, he can ask one of his parents in private and he will be shown how to find the answers or be given the answer, but that is all. This, together with the minor’s attendance at Christian meetings, will aid in his restoration.(Jas. 5:20) Parents must appreciate the seriousness of their child’s dedication and baptism and realize that dedication to Jehovah puts the child under Jehovah’s corrective arrangements when his laws are violated.<<

Baptism is a contract between a person and the wtbts. Contracting with a minor is null and void!

Witness kids are brought up to be social outcasts.
No school assemblies, extra-curricular activities discouraged, having to make a "stand" for religious beliefs in a hostile environment, all in the name of a religion that their parents chose for them.

Oh..and perleeze don't anyone give me that horseshit about other religions making similar demands..that still doesn't make it OK!

I don't agree with youths getting baptized. I am adamant on that.

That has always been my position since i have been here.

I have seen too many mistakes throughout the years.

No unconditional love. For many that is the truth.
Others are fortunate to have reasonable parents.

That's very interesting, considering that you chose to be baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses at the age of 21.

Why would an adult of legal age get baptized into a religion that they felt trapped in? You have to go through a lot of questioning and convince all the elders that you really want to be one of Jehovah's Witnesses before you can get baptized.

You had an ulterior motive for getting baptized and after it got you what you wanted, you were done and looking for an excuse to renounce your dedication. It's very plain.

I can only speak for my self on this I had feelings of inadequacies, fear of death, fear of being abandoned, fear being watched and a healthy fear of being falsely acused of wrong doing as in smoking.. I actually had a kid say I was smoking when I was not I had a femal stalker but that is not common I think ......

Depression at not having one thought or feeling of my own not being able to freely express my feeling.Like I said I can not speak for others just myself.

It is like taking a test say all the right questions smile and get dunked. Many people are raised in the religon and know nothing else being baptised was just a means to an end to get married at a kingdom hall get status, or as many of the ones just did it because they found out their friends were getting baptised ect...
