Bill and Julia
stand up to the Society re: disfellowshipping
Things are heating up a bit over here. We were told we were being disfellowshipped on April 1st (Julia's
birthday ironically!) on the basis of Titus 3:10 ("...promoting a sect...." ridiculous).
We appealed on the 8th, but so far they haven't been in touch with us about fixing a date.
We 'minuted' the 'judicial' and other discussions, and the two attachments are the letters we've recently sent. Feel free to put any of this, or extracts from it, on your site if you think it might do someone somewhere some good. It's like an ongoing soap-opera - it might get people hooked?
Anyway, keep it up and keep in touch.
