I feel really angry and upset. A good friend of mine is going through hell because they are being shunned by their children and grandchildren. Their sin? Believing that Jesus died on a cross, not a torture stake.
I'm lucky enough where I haven't had to endure any shunning (yet), but seeing as the Governing Body refuses to back down on their tyrannical doctrine of destroying families when someone doesn't agree with them, I'm wondering if it's time that we started writing to our Members of Parliment, Senators or whatever government officials available. Freedom of Religion is one thing. Destroying the very fabric of our societies---the family unit---- because a few senile men have their heads up their asses and have literally put themselves in place of God is another. Especially as these same men deny us the very same priviledge---Freedom of Religion----that they themselves enjoy without accountability or reason.
If enough of us wrote letters, what do you think our chances would be of getting some law passed that forbade religions from telling people they must shun family members?
I'd appreciate your input on this.
