    I can not be called a brother, im not a fornicator or a greedy person or an idolater or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner, I dont know many exjws that can.

    Their version of shunning is like jesus kicking every lost sheep he finds to a curve.

    This is my personal experience. My mother and I were disfellowshipped. My younger brother never got baptised, all my witness family treat him like he is disfellowshipped too.

    as some of my friends here know--i first joined this site whilst trying to locate my estranged son--whom i had found had been disfellowshipped.

    i subsequently found him on facebook--and began a slow, exploratory dialogue.

    a surprise phone call wednesday--from his lady partner--they were here on the island--& would i like to meet them.

    a 2 hour pub meet up followed--they make a lovely couple--we had no awkward silences---and it looks like the start of something good. the missing 27 years started to shrink.

    and i'm delighted to say his lifestyle is totally opposite to that required of jw dom.

    a real chip off the old block!! makes me proud
    unbrother BIGMAC--nothingist--totally out of the UNTRUTH

    quotinfg from fatfreak

    ""to quit mixing in company with anyone called a brother that is a fornicator or a greedy person or an idolater or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner, not even eating with such a man." (1 Cor. 5:11,13)"

    ive sometimes thought about this---surely this only applies to a (JW) " brother" who continues to associate--whilst doing wrong---not someone who has left/resigned/'DA'd----they no longer "call themselves a brother"--so the congregation wouldnt mix with them anyway.

    or am i missing something?

    Imagine a family gathering where a child cannot participate in activities that his baptized cousins and other relatives are enjoying simply because they don't live within his household. It's possible.
