Disfellowshipped JW's Still Have "Normal Family Relations"
"Normal family relations".....in that cult abnormal family relations are far more prevalent.....dffed or not.....
Play the clips from the convention where the phone is not answered and the like
"When someone is disfellowshipped from the religion, normal family relations continue, with the exception of spiritual fellowship.” - A Watchtower Lawyer
That's such bullshit!
I know countless people that aren't even disfellowshipped that are shunned by their family merely because they no longer go to the Kingdom Hall to attend meetings.
The leadership of this cult are all morally corrupt liars. They have no shame.
If you have to lie to defend your beliefs, then your beliefs are not worth defending!
The other crazy thing is that spiritual fellowship does continue. The dfd one can still attend meetings, pray, sing and therefore worship along with the rest of the congregation, the just can't talk to anyone.
However, if they are living with their family, then they can't sit and listen in their book study or join in prayer with them but unlike at the Kingdom Hall, they can talk to them.
The JW`s also lyingly try to put the onus on the one that is shunned saying it`s their fault we are not talking to them because they knew the consequences of leaving the religion .So they still left knowing the consequences so its not our fault but theirs.....?
How do you argue with reasoning like that ?
smidds - How do you argue with reasoning like that ?
The WT is deliberately trying to deceive the Court when they say crap like that. If called up about it, they say, "When we say family, we are only referring to those who live in the same home. We weren't including other relatives."
Here is what their actual policy is. It speaks for itself.
