A friend of Clyde's, who is an UBM but attends meetings anyway, called today to say that their was a part on last night's meeting that was very hard hitting on how to treat disfellowshipped relatives. He thinks his wife was being singled out because she recently spent several days at her daughter's home to help out with her new baby. The daughter was disfellowshipped over 10 years ago for living with her boyfriend, but now they have been legally married for quite some time. The mom also had a very difficult pregnancy and couldn't lift over 5 pounds so it was important that she get some help from her family.
Clyde's friend said he almost got up and walked out. I wish he had.... I understand that the wife is very upset about it, but my gut feeling is that she will follow the counsel instead of standing up to her rights. So much for being an organization that promotes family values.
Anyway, I'm wondering if this was a scheduled part on the program or a "special needs" talk.
