SOoooooooooooooooooooo would i be right in assuming that the sitting at the back of the hall, no contact, no answering mean that the spirituality of the congregation is not that strong?
To me it would seem that Elders are scared that a disfellowshipped person is more strong in reasoning and knowledge than the rank and file of the congregation.
I wonder how many Elders are "infected" by the disfellowshipped person but are so caught up in being an under lord they just carry on? I wonder how many within the congreation are sick of Elders throwing people out for free thinking?
Are the disfellowshipped people more sane and less of a threat than those in the congregation?
