A Jehovah’s Witness Refuses to Talk to Her Dying Mother Because She Left the Faith Decades Ago

We’ve spent a lot of time on this site talking about the awful Jehovah’s Witness policy of Disfellowshipping in which those who leave the faith are effectively shunned by the entire JW community, including their own family members.

It doesn’t get any more personal than the video below. In it, a young woman talks about her dying-of-cancer mother-in-law whose only wish is to speak with her daughter one last time… Unfortunately, the daughter refuses to talk to her ex-JW mother because doing so would remove the incentive to return to Jehovah.
