Just when I thought my family couldnt be more discordant and dysfunctional because of the JWs, we now have the element of some of the nonJWs getting sick of the JWs who are shunning the exJWs and the nonJWs are now shunning the JWs for shunning! Jeeeeez louise. :(
My husband of 19 years is a JW, one of his sisters is a JW as is her husband and all of her kids, and so one mentally challenged sister also baptized. (That sister lives at home with her mother, my mother in law and her Elder 2nd husband) On the other hand there is an older brother, a middle sister and a youngest brother who escaped the JWs without having to be baptized. All of them adults now. I left the JWs in 1997 after 13 years and my kids are not nor will ever be, JWs. But now my mother in law who was a JW for 25 years and brought all of her kids to the hall as she should and watched three of them get baptized, has now LEFT the JWs for good (she DAd in 99, went BACK in 02 and DAd again in 05....she found out you cant go back) and now my husband and his JW sister and her whole family are SHUNNING THEIR MOTHER! And the sister shuns ME of course but Im used to that. Now the oldest BROTHER who was never a JW found out his siblings are shunning their own mother and has categoricallly stated that he has HAD it with this facockta cult and is shunning MY JW HUSBAND AND HIS JW SISTER! So basically, nobody in this family is talking to anybody else much. We dont have ANY family gatherings. My kids cant see their own cousins, my mother in law cant see her own kids or grandkids and we owe it ALLLL to the LOOOOOVE of JEHOOOOOVER.
Anybody else seeing this going on??
