I'm PIMO, very much against disfellowshipping, and going to a Meeting leaves me feeling confused and angry at the best of times. Except an elder asked me on Thursday night if I can start giving a ride to a disfellowshipped woman because she lives near me and nobody else from the Hall lives in my village. It seems the elder and his family who have been giving this woman a ride for the past six months can no longer stomach the time it takes them to go out of their way.
I thought all normal publishers weren't to have any contact with disfellowshipped people? I mean, this woman is told to sit at the back, and I was told six months ago (when I didn't know who she was) not to speak to her as she's disfellowshipped. So why are the Elders in my Kingdom Hall being relaxed about asking people to give this woman a ride? It freaks me out being told not to say a word to her before she gets in my car and not a word once she's gotten back out, but it's fine to chat to her on the car ride. What the hell? I've heard from others in the Hall that she asks weird questions and can get angry, so these are extra reasons I'm unhappy.
