Can someone tell the WTS/JW's how utterly counter productive & cruel shunning is?
Apart from serious crimes where a person might conscientiously have nothing to do with a friend/relative, people who are struggling with any kind of issues generally need love, support & kindness.
Shunning is unnecessary, evil & humiliating.
Does the punishment really fit the crime? Someone caves into the 'sins of the flesh' so they are cut off from all human contact with everyone they know?
And don't give me the excuses about the supposed idea that it's only those who aren't repentant. Do me a favour! We all know that is absolute horse shit.
Anyone who supports shunning as a form of dicipline or rehabilitation is kidding themselves on big time.
It is evil & those who carry it out are fulfilling scripture for all the wrong reasons.
Shame on them.
