If you end shunning its actually not a cult anymore
Shunning is just part of a cult but that is not the whole story. They:
Tell you who you can have sex with
What clothes you can wear
What music you can listen to
What films you can watch
What friends you can have
What education you can get
What health care you can't have if it involves blood or part of blood
It consumes your time with mind numbing meetings designed to keep you busy
You'll be expected to go out door to door to peddle their BS
They lie to their members and do not allow people a space to voice divergent perspectives
You really want to go back to that?
Shunning is directed by the Organization but enacted by the JW populace. For years they've been told this is scriptural. Do you honestly think if the Org stopped it tomorrow that all the individual Witnesses would stop?
The damage by the cult is done, and people will remain with a cult mentality.
I miss my wonderful friends but there is not enough money on this planet to get me to return to that genuine waste of life.
