Kyria has also posted plenty of YouTube videos for your viewing pleasure and writes for a website called Street Carnage. Check’em out. They’re worth your time. (I’ll be adding links to them on my blog roll soon enough.)
Even now, as an ex-Jehovah’s Witness, I really don’t celebrate Christmas. I probably would if my wife did, but she remains a Jehovah’s Witness herself. Also, I’m evil. Still, I can offer my fellow book geeks a couple of goodies.
First, we have 12 Days of Christmas Stories! from Mur Lafferty at Escapepod. If you like audiobooks (I listen to them while exercising, walking, washing the dishes, etc.) you might want to give these a try.
Do you shun former members?
Those who simply leave the faith are not shunned. If, however, someone unrepentantly practices serious sins, such as drunkenness, stealing, or adultery, he will be disfellowshipped and such an individual is avoided by former fellow-worshipers.
