Just putting this out to you.
Have you encountered, or noticed on occasion how what you were disfellowshipped for, also dictates who will associate with you, post-JW? Yes, I'm talking about those beloved ex-JWs/DF'd/DA'd/apostates.
By that, I mean, if you were, let's say, disfellowshipped for scriptural/doctrinal issues, perhaps in the ex-JW world, you hold yourself or others of that ilk, in higher esteem?
Those that were disfellowshipped for smoking, heavy drinking or drug use, perhaps as previously not strong people.
Those that were disfellowshipped for sexual misconduct: (file under: OTHER) and similar to the above.
It's interesting. Has anyone noticed this?
Grading of disfellowshipping offenses: thus you are graded post-JW, as a result of why you were finally let go.
I'm putting this out to you, because I have observed on/off forum/s, that people do this. (IMHO)
Have you been affected by this?
In the WTS eyes, if you even remotely cared: we're all in the same (proverbial) ship.
I have had some interesting conversations as of late, and no matter what it was you were eventually disfellowshipped for, it would seem no matter how much you gave yourself to the organization, it all came to naught; even post-JW, you're still getting a bit of the same thing sometimes?
'he/she couldn't have been very strong JWs' <WTF? (I have heard this more than twice/thrice)
Minor Rayzorblade venting here.
Any comments? Thanks otherwise for allowing me to simply, get this off my chest.
