A friend told me that a person was announced last night as "Not Longer a Jehovahs Witness."
He told me that an elder after the meeting stated that this person used to be very zealous and a regular pioneer when he was single. That was only about 5 years ago.
The sad thing is that I was told that he was not in the cliche. Therefore ones in the congregation were already shunning him at the meetings. When he raised his hand to comment, the conductor could never remember his name.
Sounds like the congregation never accepted him as a "spiritual brother". No wonder he DA himself.
