She tries to explain that she doesn't do those things, but her friend just can't grasp that she left and is still a moral person who loves Jehovah.
Because what they were taught is that even if one leaves the "truth"; they are immoral and loves the world. They just can't seem to let that pharaseical teaching go. This teaching is crushing to those that had the strength to leave and follow their own path in life. The cost is that their families and "friends" leave them out of "love".They in turn are not loving the ones that chose to leave, but yet in fact,are "hating" them for making up their own damn mind on what to do in their life. Then comes the hurt, the pain...the isolation, ect.
The "us verses them" viewpoint is narrowminded and prejudiced at its best.
"Worldy"...the very name itself is racist in its JW connotation of the word.
What still haunts though, is the memories...memories of how things were in their life. And how those that turned their backs to them when they were at their lowest point comes back into their life..NOT to just talk shop and say that they're happy that that person is doing well, but only to "cry and beg" to comeback, so that things can be like they were.
The hurt and pain? Very mental....very annoying, like someone rubbing a two forks onto a clean china plate causing the most irritating sensation which can drive a competent person to maddness.
This is the irritaiton that causes people to move away into another state...or to take their own life.
