The people who shunned me in my earlier years are pretty much all dead now. However, back then, I sometimes was on the end of an approach from a JW so that he could explain to me why he wasn't going to speak to me anymore!
The conversation would go something like this:
He: Sorry but I can't talk to you anymore.
Me: Why's that?
He: Because you're disfellowshipped.
Me: Why's that? What did I do that was so terrible that you have to pretend that I don't exist?
He: Er..I don't know the details..the um..committee have um.. made that decision..
Me: So you don't even know why you have to pretend that I don't exist. You're acting on the instructions of others. Are you really content with that? Really?
Exit one confused dubbie.
