This is sooooo true!!
parents treat a baptized child who has defected (no matter what the reason) different from one who was never dunked but decided that it is a bunch of hooey.
On the one hand, I'm happy for my unbaptized siblings and their respective mates/partners that they can enjoy the company of my JW parents/baptized siblings and their respective mates. All they have to put up with is the occasional Infomercial? directed at the non-JW mates/partners - they don't get criticized for "living in sin", not going to meetings, not Serving Jehovah?. I'm happy that they have that little loophole in their favour.
On the other hand, I'm really cheesed off that my JW family members feel that it's ok to treat me and my family as though we are dead, even though we aren't committing any moral infractions.
Yeah, that sure makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?
