The Toxic Residue from Watchtower’s Shunning Policy — 6 Comments

  1. Sadly..Directly or indirectly…The Shunning or fear of being shunned by family and friends…because of the violation of human rights and dignity by JW.Org, and their oppressive and controlling policies as laid out by their now 8 leaders…has caused many a good person to take their life…or to mentally give up on life…mental giving up leads to physical giving up of ones body…stress related illness and pain sets in…death seems then something that will relieve all….The Jehovah’s Witness Show…must stop or be stopped by those in the power to do so. The sooner the better…

  2. On Feb 4th 2018, my wonderful brother took his own life. He strugged with depression and loneliness. They refused to let him find companionship and disfellowed him. The loneliness and isolation he felt from having to isolate from witnesses and “worldly” people drove him into such a deep hole he couldn’t handle it. His note directly specified the shunning and unjust cause for it and lack of compassion while he repented. They told him he was out for 2 years, it affected his strong religious beliefs and affected him in and out of their cult church. Half my family are JW and they are so brainwashed they can’t see it for the truth and have been shunning the other half for years. This cult either needs to change their ways or be stopped. These RUSSELITES are out of control. You know kids can be prosecuted for bullying another kid to the point they commit suicide but speaking to a detective they said there is no one in the organization that can be gone after, not the watchtower, not the kindomhall, not the elders directly responsible for the inhumane torture they put him through.

    I feel we need to stand together, start a nonprofit organization, gather as a collective, share resources and power, and we need to get BILLBOARDS, ONLINE ADS, FLIERS, and get the word out.


  3. Sooo sorry to hear your sad news…it should never happen! I agree more has to be done to make people aware of the damage this cult does to peoples lives to the point where they can not endure the mental torture and end their life to find peace…my heart breaks for you in this sad time as you try to understand, endure and speak out…My brothers and I have been in this state of feelings…but so far have managed to keep going…activism against this cult helps…maybe others will be saved from this terrible demise…it is worth our trying to speak out. There is this treatment going on all over within this corrupt…far from being…”a shelter in a wind storm”…This treatment HAS TO STOP! Nothing a person could say will take away the loss and pain…But please know caring ones who have been thru similar things…understand and feel for you. Hugs.

  4. In your writeup ,you never stated the offence he committed that earned him a 2year ban. You just jumped into name calling –cult church. I feel your brother found it difficult to adhere to the life style as prescribed in the Bible; his way of life may have been a source of concern to the organisation and by extension it’s members. He may have been a very bad example to potential admirers who would view such bad behaviour as a standard of the organisation.
    The best for him was to leave with the hope of a change of attitude for his own benefit. There are so many who found happiness in the organisation lived and died for it. The suicide may be as a result of other issues you failed to mention. If anyone is not comfortable with the life style expected of him as a member of JW, you quit period. Don’t spread false information about an organisation you failed to meet its standard. Read the Acts of the apostles, who controlled how they lived their lives for the TRUTH. I AM NOT A MEMBER BUT AN ADMIRER.
