Has The Watchtower Ever Opposed Shunning Craziness?

    When - if ever - has the Watchtower EVER condemned shunning craziness? Let me post some examples I personally encountered:

    A daughter shuns her Witness father and won't talk to him. He has a massive coronary and dies suddenly. No 'goodbye Dad', for you .

    An elder avoids being openly friendly with newcomers he doesn't know. "They might be disfellowshipped" , he says.

    An older sister generously volunteers to plan a wedding for an engaged younger sister. In Diva-fashion, the girl finds fault with the arrangements and shuns her thereafter.

    A TM School elder has a heck of a time trying to assign sisters for talks because there are so many that shun each other.

    An elder's wife approaches the daughter of a family that is bitter against the organization. She says, "No point in talking to you because you aren't making any progress" and turns and walks away.

    An otherwise kindly elder - has no idea where his 30-ish daughter is, what she is doing and no interest in meeting her family. Her crime? 'leaving the "truth"

    Historical: Brothers in Nazi Concentration camps who shunned each other for all sorts of reasons. Also, the Gestapo has an easier time of it because Witness brothers - who shun or privately hate each other - betray each other in interrogation, as noted in records later exposed, after WW2. And you wondered why the Society occasionally spoke about sharing a cell with a brother you hate, in some articles and talks?

    And now, the finale: by encouraging the baptism of minors, they are setting up for shunning children in their own homes.

    They're against Muhammad's rule to have outspoken unrepentant apostates killed--they can't get back on the subscription list.

    Mind control is easier when the subject's mind is in chaos or emotionally fatigued; any chaos will do.

    A recent Watchtower had a photo of a "bad family" watching a move called "Vein Love." The actual article had no mention of the Twilight series and the word vampire did not even occur once. I wonder how many families are battling with their teenage daughters over this? The daughters, and a small number of sons, are in love with this piece of fiction while their "God" is, for no apparent reason, attacking it with heavenly resources. The parents now have a printed image to show to their children that God does indeed hate Twilight. This seemingly harmless image injects anger and dysfunction into the family like a poisonous syringe. To me it looks like purposeful sprinkles of chaos.

    LOL Vein Love! Priceless! They should be pushing the movie since the vampire refuses to have sex without being married. LOL
