I still think a slander/defamation suit could be successfully pursued since the WTBS actively tell their followers from the platform and in their printed material to "treat" people who leave their organization as, "liars, fornicators, idolaters", etc. These are people who voluntarily leave becasue of differing opinions. In other words, you can NEVER leave under any good circumstance without it ruining your family structure.
Case in point, my parents were denied their "right" to go to their granddaughters wedding reception because they disassociated. She stated in a letter to them that she could "allow" them to come to the wedding to observe her ceremony but they had to "leave after that", because attending the reception would be "socializing" with them. Feel the love. As someone once pointed out, the WTBS is just like the Mafia because you can join but you can never leave. I also read somewhere that Courts were NOT sympathetic to entities who have disruptive influences on families.
PS. For any Dubbies who might be reading this, my 70+ parents were not "liars, fornicators, idolators" or anything else insinuated by the WTBS but if you have the balls to say it to my face prepare to have your ass kicked.
