    At one time, long ago, wasn't it mentioned that approximately 1/3 of DF'd return, be reinstated? Maybe less now?

    It would be interesting to know true figures, but you won't get them from JW org.

    I reckon a good few DF'd ones return, often just to re-establish family contact, some because they still believe the bullscrap.

    I reckon very few who disassociate return, most of these will have decided it is NOT the "truth" they are leaving.

    So much for "go look for the lost sheep"... Anyway.

    I'm sure they view df'd and da'd as DEAD sheep. The WTS once reasoned why families could not talk to df'd or da'd family, because they had been guilty of capital offenses under the Law code...can't talk to dead people, right?

    A late and uncharacteristically honest change to a policy that was almost never followed.
