Hi, mine was just a personal reflection of my own experience and not meant to reflect anyone else's, nor was it meant to minimize the horror of the reality we all endured. I was very young and dumb, and finally, I'm just doing some 'math' and coming to terms with more of it, retrospectively.
My husband's parents are still living and they have memories of visiting a service in Rowland Heights, were horrified at what they heard and tried very sincerely to steer my husband right. They did not ever think they'd live to see this day, either, having visited just once and recognizing the error. So this affects more than just those who were in the walk, but also loved ones by extension.
Believe me, I stopped having 'fun' early on and it really hit rock bottom with G & H coming into power, so we ran out of there as fast and far as we could. It shouldn't viewed as a 'massive distraction' to posit on the 'hook' that drew some, but also to explore (and I'm not there at all), what kept me there. If you disagree with my musings, then maybe best to pass on reading someone's postings who are still 'in process'. This should be kept a relatively safe venue and free from criticisms!
