The leaders of the Watchtower Society do their best to deny that their extreme shunning policy harms anyone. They describe it as simply a way to keep their organization “clean” and to keep “evildoers” and “fornicators” separated from faithful Jehovah’s Witnesses. Former Jehovah’s Witnesses (most who have not committed any “serious sin” but have simply disagreed with the Watchtower’s ever-changing teachings and predictions) know the truth about how enforced shunning divides and destroys families.
In the following video a young British school girl, just eleven years old, and her mum share their experiences and feelings about this subject. No longer Jehovah’s Witnesses, but still believing Christians, they know the real pain and frustration of having close family members not only avoid them, but also accuse them of “harming Jehovah” and “making Him sad.” Listen how they describe how young and impressionable children are being brainwashed into believing the very worst of their own close blood relatives.
This is a video you will want to share with your friends – especially those who have no idea how destructive the Watchtower’s extreme shunning policy really is. This is a video you won’t soon forget – nor should you.
