There is this woman I used to correspond with back in my dub days but lost contact with several years ago. Anyway just the other day she sent me an e-mail out of the blue.
She wanted to know if I was "in" or "out" as she was planning a trip to Australia and if I was still "in" possibly we could meet (obviously I would have to travel to Oz). She had heard I wasn't going to the meetings any more.
I replied that I was definitely not "in" any longer but that I wasn't DA'd or DF'd and if she wanted to read my story I provided her a link to my story on this site. I let her know that I'd be happy to meet up with her and catch up on old times.
WELL, the next day I had a brief and very curt message back from her that since I was obviously now an apostate she wanted nothing more to do with me and that she was going to delete all the e-mails I had ever sent her as well as destroy the gifts I had sent years ago that she still had. And she was going to delete any references to my e-mail address on her system. As far as she is concerned I am now dead. So even though I have not been DF'd, she has decided to shun me anyway.
Even though I should know better, I am constantly amazed by the callous attitude that dubs have towards anyone who leaves. Friendship is totally conditional upon following the borg rules. I used to have a great deal of affection for this woman, and I still do, kinda, but that affection was never, and will never be, conditional on what religion she follows. It's so sad that they can't see how unloving and unchristian their hypocritical beliefs are!!!
I am SOOOOOO glad to be out of that dreadful organisation.
