The longer I’m out the more I feel that disfellowshipping is cruel. I understand the Organization tells parents to not even accept emails or texts from their disfellowshipped children. While I was a Witness they tried to discourage families from association but there was some leeway if it was considered necessary business to interact. Of course many families would use technicalities in order to get around the Society’s directive. But they appear to be worse than ever.
What is your experience regarding the congregation’s actions on disfellowshipped people? Is it worse than ever before in the Organization or is it a local elder thing as to whether they will go after you or not?
