reading this post it jogged my memory of a similar picture. The last one
involved an adult son leaving the home with the distraught parents in the
foreground. Now the WT leaders have flipped this around to be the
husband/father heading out the front door & the distraught wife & kids
in the foreground. Truly this is one religion that will never be reformed.

Someone We Love Leaves Jehovah
What is the real decision that parents of disfellowshipped children must make?
14. Our hearts go out to those parents. After all, their son had
a choice, and he chose to pursue his unchristian lifestyle rather than to
continue to enjoy close association with his parents and other fellow
believers. The parents, on the other hand, had no say in the matter. No wonder
they feel helpless!
15. But what will those dear parents do? Will they
obey Jehovah’s clear direction? Or will they rationalize that they can have
regular association with their disfellowshipped son and call it “necessary family
business”? In making their decision, they must not fail to consider how Jehovah
feels about what they are doing. His purpose is to keep the organization clean
and, if possible, to incite wrongdoers to come to their senses. How can
Christian parents support that purpose?
