I was 12 years old when an unorganized religion informed my mother of a different path.
A promise of everlasting life on a paradise Earth. It would effect our entire lives for many many years to come.
All Days that began with HAPPY or MERRY ; were not too be celebrated in anyway.
So Mama, this is for you.
I found a huge box and I have put lots of LOVE in it. Your favorite Channel #5, a soft silky handkerchief, flower seeds, a bottle of grape Manischewitz wine.
Over the years I made a point to gift you on other days. But than you cut me out of your life. Again, because an organized religion told you I was a apostate.
For YEARS at a time.
I moved far away.
I lost contact with family and close relatives.
The Holidays became unimportant days. Just a date on the calendar where everyone else seemed to go into debt to make sure someone else was Happy.
My dad was ecstatic, as he never liked spending too much money on any one thing.
The Holidays and Birthdays before I turned 12 are fondly remembered
A group of people who’s faces are flat from getting doors slammed in their faces.
This does a great JOB of summing up:
The name of a religious cult who get brainwashed by mind control techniques into believing that their interpretation of the Bible is better than anyone else’s.
It was started by some idiot that got this vision of the world coming to an end in 1914. When 1914 came and went, he then managed to persuade his flock that it would happen in 1942. When 1942 came and went, well let me put it this way… Anyone who would even think about joining this cult is mentally ill to begin with.
They publish some toilet trash called the Watch Tower and are also known as the Watch Tower Society and JWs. In 1933 their leaders conspired with Hitler against the Jews. Several of their top members were thrown in jail for committing fraud, larceny, sexual deviant acts, etc. But somehow the cult manages to go on. Go figure.
If a member deviates in any way from their way of life all other members are required to scorn them. This is just one of their many mind control techniques.
But the worse thing about JWs is that every year hundreds of children die because these geniuses think that “Thou shalt not eat blood” refers to life saving transfusions instead of becoming a vampire.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are the “False Prophets” that God refers to in the Bible. When one comes to your door, just give them a copy of the letter their leaders sent in support of Hitler and tell the bigots to fuck off.

You carried me under your heart.
I carry you in my heart.
