Right now ( Sunday night , 10 pm ) I am Watching a programme on ID channel about a tragedy in a Witness family . It is not showing them in a good light , at all
An new elder talks to a woman who was disfellowshipped for being raped . He is appalled at the lack of sympathy shown by the elders . He writes to the GB questioning the way rape victims are treated . Still half of the programme to go but it is clear that the pressure that this puts on his family leads to some of the family being slaughtered ..
The commentary mentions shunning and hateful behaviour . Any non Witness watching this will really have their eyes opened.
American members here may be familiar with this story , but this is new to me .The couple are Robert and Janet Bryant .
Shunning has just been likened to psychological torture ! This is really showing the bad side of the Watchtower .
