on the subject I feel like I ve sidestepped entering a nightmareThank you Diane Wilson the subject I feel like I ve sidestepped entering a nightmareThank you Diane Wilson your courage in writing this book and sharing your experience with us I bought this book after a couple of very nice Jehovah s Witnesses came to my door I am an atheist but did not now a lot about this particular branch of Christianity although they put a lot emphasis on Jehovah than Jesus Diane s story is mesmerizing and infuriating The only drawback was the number of times despite all the insanity and mental cruelty she witnessed that she still wasn t ready to pull the plug on this life draining cult So it was a little repetitive but this illustrates how powerful indoctrination is They pull you in with peace and love and promises of family and then after your family is in the cult you risk losing them if you leave Shunning is one of the tools they practice enthusiastically I recommend this book for anyone who wants to now what these smiling mellow people are really thinking I m sure they believe I m possessed by demons But no I m just able to use my brain.
