Hey it's been awhile since I've left--almost 5 years now! I haven't visited this site for quite a while now.
I was never Dfd, but I have little contact with anything to do with JWs. My daughter who also left the JWs when I did is still in contact with a few friends who have also left the Org. One of her friends still lives with his elderly JW parents. He's a nice kid who went to college and has a good job and helps his parents out financially. He travels a lot on business and recently while he was away some of the elders in the congregations came to his parents home and demanded to search his room to find some grounds to DF him. (he is not a bad kid, but not living up to JW standards.) HIs parents are quite elderly and the stress of it sent his father to the hospital. Seems like they want to get this kid out of the org and separate him from his family by DFing him since they don't like the idea of his parents not rejecting him (their only son.)
Anyway, I haven't been around for awhile and wondered what the latest stand is on those who are "inactive." Like I said I have such little contact with JWs anymore. They haven't come to my door in a very long while and the elders haven't been here for a very long time--3 years now? What happened to contacting those who are inactive? Are there some new rules on this? Are these trying to DF those who have left, by digging up dirt on them? I am already treated by many as if I am Dfd, which is mostly OK with me, but the Org has sadley divided some members of my family too.
Just wondering if anyone has the latest scoop on this.
