You have hit the nail squarely on the head!
This is the distinction I hope to make - that people who have intentionally abandoned the religion, are purposefully mislabelled by the hounders as inactive.
They are not present tense inactive, they are done, faded, escaped, past tense GONE, present tense free persons.
The fact that many of these people are hassled years after reclaiming their own freedom, is a violation of their rights to religious freedom.
The old quotes I am hoping someone can find substantiate that the act of abandonment is or can be the most powerful demonstration of the exercise of a religious freedom.
