In this episode, our guest Carrie Bee, the author of Paradise Bound https://www.amazon.com/Paradise-Bound-Carrie-Bee/dp/1628387254), shares her experience on the effects of shunning for the better part of her life by her parents. Despite being their only child, they are more devoted enforcing Watchtower policies than having a relationship with their daughter. They have also chosen not to have a relationship with their grandchildren.
Our other featured guest, Paul, presents information from Questions From Readers (QFR) found in the November 15, 1952 Watchtower.
QUESTION: In the case of where a father or mother or son or daughter is disfellowshipped, how should such a person be treated by members of the family in their family relationship – P.C. Ontario, Canada.
In this QFR, the Watchtower discusses how to treat certain individuals within the community and based on their role in your life will depend how you treat them. For instance, it discusses the relationship between the spouse that leaves the organization vs the one that decides to stay. But, those that have grown children will need to focus on a much different outcome.
We also feature a clip from the SUPREME COURT OF CANADA where the Watchtower lawyer, David Gnam, explains to the court the difference between “disfellowshipping” and “shunning”.
