    IMHO, its the one Rodney Spinks and Terry O`Brien parroting the Governing Body direction is that when somebody leaves the religion whether they just fade ,disassociate or even get disfellowshiped ,then they are in fact shunning all members of all congregations worldwide including family and friends ,.according to their testimony at the ARC.

    This is a blatant lie and misrepresents the Truth,.and they know it.

    When a person leaves the religion for whatever reason they are rejecting the Governing Body`s Teachings ,Doctrines and Practices of the religion of Jehovah`s Witnesses and not all peoples associated within the congregations.

    Especially not family and friends who they may have long standing relationships with.

    They try to shift the blame and put the onus on those who leave.

    Shame on them for perpetuating such a lie.

    Imagine being an expert witness for the government in the ARC.

    Attorney: You at one time were one of Jehovah's Witnesses?

    Witness: Correct.

    Attorney: You chose to stop being one of Jehovah's Witnesses? I believe the term is you "faded"?

    Witness: Yes. That is correct on both of your questions.

    Attorney: So then, what happens to you if you try to maintain your relationship with active Jehovah's Witnesses? I mean to ask, what consequences are there for you as a former Jehovah's Witnesses for trying to maintain a relationship with current Jehovah's Witness?

    Witness: None. Nothing will happen. There are no consequences.

    Attorney: What would happen if the Jehovah's Witness you are maintaining a relationship with? That is to ask, what consequences would that Jehovah's Witness face?

    Witness: That Jehovah's Witness would be disfellowshipped and shunned by all other Jehovah's Witnesses including all family members that do not live in the same home as that Witness. Anyone that is a Jehovah's Witness would be told they will face the same outcome if the continue any relations with that person.

    Attorney: Let's be clear - You're telling the court that as a former Jehovah's Witness you are free to associate with active Jehovah's Witnesses and face no consequences, but the reverse is not true? You may or may not shun Jehovah's Witnesses, but they must shun you under penalty of being shunned?

    Witness: That is truth.

    Attorney: No further questions your Honor. I pass the witness.

    One wonders what difference it makes when they treat those they disfellowshipped equally as those who disassociated.

    They know they were LYING. Since they already made it clear that disfellowshipped members are to be shunned. The Shunning comes from them since they say actions towards disfellowshipped members applies to disassociated members.

    The worst is classing disassociated and disfellowshipped members as people actively leading others to sin.

    Once again, for the newbies, lurkers, and trolls...

    ...if you have to cheat to defend your beliefs, your beliefs don't deserve to be defended.

    BTW, does anybody else remember when JWs were proud to acknowledge that they ostracized ex-members?

    WTF happened?
