Yes, you are right. I was "shunned" by certain cliques even when I was active in the religion and making all the meetings. I guess my full time job branded me as somebody not worth knowing.
I always wondered though how all these judgmental Witnesses who ignored me were supposed to rise to the occasion to help during the "great tribulation"? It's highly unlikely that they would. I wouldn't even so much as be an afterthought. This was the realistic way I viewed it all.
Now, that I am out so many years they all seem so ridiculous to me and I'm glad I'm not part of that charade anymore. And I'd never tolerate these hypocrites asking for money.
