thanks for the insult alan. Yes, you know so much more about the subject than anyone else could. we are not worthy. anyone who brings up other points MUST be a mole for bethel legal. LOL.
I'm simply pointing out the "extra-legal" means that are taken against individuals. What it comes down to is your individual family situation. If your family ignores the shunning mandate, then whether you are DFed or not is irrelavent. If they don't, then likely they would shun you if the elders told them to anyway. Those are cold, hard FACTS. I thought you were logical and liked cold hard FACTS.
I've known faders who get shunned as if they were DFed and I've seen DFed ones whose family acts as if nothing happens. It's roll of the dice.
