    Tell the elder that since he's bending the rules, you'll give her rides to meeting so long as he adds a clause to her disfellowshippment which enables her to sit where she wants and to speak to whomever she pleases.

    This is done more often than you think. It is not bending the rules. You are not obligated. Say no.

    This is probably the result of the whole thing being an inconvenience to the elder to go out of his way picking them up. They want to pass this unpleasant task on. I would say that you would prefer it if he asked another elder to help him out as this is a difficult area and you are not comfortable with the request.

    Say no! If the elder keeps pressuring you, tell him what part of No don’t you understand ? then walk away.

    Tell Ask the Elders if this isn’t THEIR responsibility to assist repentant ones to return to Joe Hoover. Is it really proper for him to ask you to commit a DFing offense to spare him some inconvenience? So much for what Jesus said about saving one lost sheep.

    It’s so odd listening to adults discuss JW issues. In the real world, nobody can make you work as a free taxi service for someone under any circumstance lol.

    Just say no, you’re an adult

    Go full bonkers and tell the elder that you're afraid she'll start chanting, murder you, and sacrifice you to Baphomet.

    Or maybe be a nice Christian-slash-human-being and give her a lift when she needs it.

    You ought to be able to cite chapter and verse of some Watchtower rule somewhere that limits association with a dfed person to the elders.

    Lets hope the poor disfellowshipped woman reads this thread and wakes the fuck up to how cold and heartless JWs really are!

    Lyft or Uber should do it!
