    I saw someone posted regarding speculation of a chnage to the disfellowshipping policy. Is this accurate and what has been speculated?

    The only recent change has been how they announce it at the service meeting, "so-and-so is no longer one of Jehovah's Witnesses." I think that was just a speculation.

    No real change except legally covering their ass-sets.

    Kind of like making blood a "moc" but declaring it is an automatic DAing if taken.

    If such announcement is made and the person still attends then it means they were DF'd but if they are long gone the are DAd.

    Yet more proof that they are a cult.

    There was a rumour some time back that some change to the policy had been put to vote on the GB but it did not get the necessary 2/3rd's majority.

    No idea what change was proposed.

    If the rumour is true, it means there is division in the GB about this policy. Yes, God's "faithful channel" disagree amongst themselves that JW's should shun ex-JW's.

    Basically, any "changes" will be wimpy, trivial nuances about the degree of shunning among family members. And how it gets accounted for.
