    Agreed. I wonder how they will all feel when the cult collapses?

    I can understand if someone really dislikes something you've done so much they want no association with you.

    But for an 0rganization to demand that one's friends and family treat the person they have marked as an outcast, a living-dead not worthy of acknowledgement or social courtesies, or worse a pariah and dis-owned family member, that indeed is barbaric, and it is shameful for this JW 0rganization/WT Society to inflict this suffering on people especially so those who do not want to be members of it anymore due to conscience, and are awake to the lies and harmful practices of this real-estate and money greedy grabbing religious cult.

    It's the ultimate sanction, because it's already been drummed into them that , there is no other form or chance of salvation out there in the world, so that was a kind of scorched earth policy from the slave , if you get cast out there , there is nothing whatsoever for you , it's all invalid and disqualified as far as God is concerned.

    In effect they are operating a spiritual caste system and you can be demoted anytime you ask the wrong question or dare to step out of line .

    An organsation or individual cant remain in God without constantly remaining in love.

    The gospel says "And we have come to know and believe that love that God has for us. God is love and the one who remains in love remains in union with God and god remains in union with him"

    Any form of social excommunication has to be defeated and avoided.

    Watchtower Shunning – Deadly by Design

    It's sad irony that the same organization that admits there "is no more potent killer than isolation" then goes on to use isolation on its membership.

    The terminology is clever I was thinking.

    The Slave. Who can but doubt that with a name so humble 'the slave'is no threat to you?!

    We don't want to control your every move, every word, every thought do we?!!You are free ! We are the Slave!
