Hi Tea, I hope you're doing well 😊
I have some advice on coming out to your parents.
I was one of Jehovah's Witnesses for around seven years.
I haven't been for a few years now. I'm a transgender lesbian and an atheiest. And very very happy being my authentic self and free💖
I absolutely do not mean to offend anyone's beliefs nor am i trying to scare you, but just stating how JW's will have to see it.
This is not my view at all.
The problem may not be with your parents view of LGBT+ people in general, but like you said, purposefully acting upon it.
According to the Bible, homosexual acts are viewed as detestable to God. Jehovah's Witnesses even have literature and short videos on how much they condone it.
The issue is that your parents have to follow the Bible and the Governing Bodies clearly stated rules on this.
They both could be disfellowshipped for disobedience and then be shunned by their congregation and any family that are Jehovah's witnesses.
There would be immense pressure from the elders in their congregation.
So please consider how deeply involved your parents are with the JW's before you tell them. Because it may force them to choose between their faith and you and could even come to the drastic decision to shun you.
Phew... that was pretty heavy!
If you can, have a look on their own website JW.org and have a look at their view on homosexuality. Even though the Bible doesn't say anything about transgender people, we too are to be viewed as mentally diseased and detested by God😭.
So i hope you make a considered approach to letting them know purely for your well-being and happiness and safety.
But please don't let anything I've said change who you are! I've learnt the hard way how damaging it is to not be true to yourself. Living authentically is soooo vital to true freedom and joy🌸
