Anyone read this book I thought it was very well written it was more for the perpective of an adult comming into the Org. The information in the book was well done and so interesting I learned some really interesting facts. I did not know they went around selling dangerous get rich gimmicks and promoting dangerous pratices. I knew they banned shots but (The Grape cure for cancer, Germs do not cause disease and more absurd claims like "basking in the sun is good for you as the UV rays are healing, cutting into the ovarys is like cutting into the brain, an anti-typoid injection turns one into stone.... radium a radioactive element cures what ails you. My personal crazy favorite!!!!! Radio Active Pad Restores Health or money back.Plus the long article written up about this life saving therapy ..then OOPS! Not a cure for cancer or anything else ever been causesd by radium but terrible sufferings.. CRAZY!!!!! This is what my mother was sucked into I know she did not read their History before she joined as I'm sure many others raised in it like myself did not either. Can one even read some of this old litterature at the Kingdom Halls Not without someone wanting to know what the heck they were up to at least that would be my guess after reading this book. This is a must read I enjoyed how you can look up the information as you read amazing stuff.

they sold cures they knew nothing about and condemed things that where life saving .... come on this is so wacky no wonder they don't want anyone reading their older literature this stuff is what the foundations of the religon are based on oh and my favorite God does not favor men and women getting married since ......drum roll .......you guessed it....THE END IS NEAR

That's the book by Diane Wilson.

I read that some time back.

Have you read the book by Barbra Grizutti Harrison?.

Barbara ended up dying of cancer some time back.

http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/26/obituaries/...

She was once a bethelite...She foolishly took up smoking after she left the witnesses and died of pulmonary cancer at the relatively young age of 67 as a result of her actions.

She also took up living with an AA man for a time. For a dame of her time and era. That was rebellious in her own way.

However, she was an accomlishedp author and interviewer...

She made her name with men. AT WHAT COST??

No but how sad that she chose that kind of life to bad she did not lead a good christian life like Barbra who by the reviews has help others and also has given those ones like myself that have been raised into it a look at the past a big eye opener I cant thank Barbra enough what an good Christian Woman to go through all of that and I know that Kingdom Hall she attended well as one of my own relatives left it a few years back because of all problems with crazy elders in that Hall.
I even read in the negative reviews where one person called her a liar and that that congregation had changed well this person must be part of the problem as I know that congregations problems all to well.
By the way do you know that they disfellowship someone in that congregation who had bipolar disorder .... true fact so nothing has really changed in that hall except shuffling of morons.

Well, i'm glad if you felt that she was a help to you. I know that many see her in that light.

It is your journey.

I have no issue with you. We have always gotten along as posters. I feel that you stay above the fray. I respect that.

But, now that i have said that, Lisa.

How do you support your allegations?.

She was in that congo a LONG TIME BACK.

Before many of us were born.

I understand but yes I have a close realtive that was in that hall and very recently left that hall. It is still like that they have some really bad problems in some of the Halls in that area I'm very familar with that area too. I would not say that if I did not know this as fact or that paticular hall and I will go on record as saying that intire general area in Northern California has some really bad issues in many of their halls. That is not the only one but it is a Kingdom hall with a bad rep.

What problems?. Are you stating that there are "allegations" of molestation?.

Please clarify. Thank you.

where did you get allegations of molestation, it could be any problem. Curious though, how you bring that up.
Next you will call her a liar for saying there was molestations.

Not, that i have to answer you. I will just this one time to make my point.

That post was for Lisa.

Lisa has her agenda. But, unlike you. She largely stays out of personal digs and nonsense here.

In other words. It's called maturity. One can converse with her. One can converse with here. although, one may not always agree.

You would be surprised by how much goodwill one can recieve when one acts decently. People can agree to disagree without being disagreeable.

Try it sometime, sweetcakes.

When have you refrained from personal digs or staying out of someone else's conversation? Oh, never.
I acted decently until I was attacked, then quickly found out who you are.
Look in the mirror sweetcakes.
