Many cultural, religious, and ethnic groups practice shunning of those who do not conform to group norms. What does the Bible say about shunning for believing Christians? How does this apply to the plethora of Christian churches in America? When are doctrinal differences too big to maintain fellowship? When fellowship is broken what about societal cooperation? These are hard questions that have a big impact on our relationships and social trajectory. We will show the biblical New Testament standard and then talk about some of applications
Religious shunning bars association with people who have been labeled as apostates, whistleblowers, dissidents or anyone the religion perceives as a threat or source of conflict. Rob Robertson’s guest, Janette, has experienced shunning and will discuss this practice and the damage that it can do. After twenty years of involvement in Scientology, she and her husband concluded that the organization was a sham. They left … and were ostracized by the entire Clearwater, Florida Scientology Community. They lost their jobs, friends and even contact with some of their family members. ”It was a very public witch hunt against us,” Janette says. Since then, Janette and her husband met many people from various religious backgrounds, all with similar stories of shunning and corruption. Janette created a website called Truth Rundown to expose the abuses and corruption going on in not only Scientology, but in several religious organizations and cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Please visit GodDiscussion.net for more information and links. ~~~ World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support. Rob runs the “World Cult Watch” website.
When is public shunning not discrimination? When the law says so. At least that is the opinion of the Arizona Legislature.
"After the Arizona Legislature gave approval on Thursday to allow business owners to assert their religious beliefs and refuse service to gays, Rocco's Little Chicago Pizzeria in Tucson put up this sign.
"The restaurant said, “Funny how just being decent is starting to seem radical these days.” See the full story athttp://bit.ly/1bsFS2d.
Kansas avoided passing a similar bill last week by tabling it in committee at he behest of business interests. Who is behind this new attempt to validate religious discrimination?
On Thursday's Lunch with Louden we will talk about The Ethics and Public Policy Center's American Religious Freedom Program, the local Religious Freedom Caucuses, and the funding behind this national initiative. (Hint: Citizens United strikes again.)

Shunning is the 'ultimate rejection'
Used for centuries in religious circles, I believe women today use it as a means of bullying. It's as much psychological violence as a slap or a punch is physical violence.
It has to stop.
Today, I'll be talking about what it is, why we do it, what effects it has and why it has to stop and how we can be part of the solution.
Plaid for Women Radio is talk radio for women. We don't talk about 'typical' talk radio topics - we talk about the Business of Life.
Join us as we explore relationships, wor, communication, behavior, time management, sexuality and more.
This debate was postponed because William Albrecht had a death in the family so our prayers go out to him!
On this program i spoke a little about my Jehovah's Witness sister whom i had not spoken to for over ten years due to the shunning policy of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Never was able to get on my agenda and that was a good thing! We had callers calling in and some were former Jehovah's Witnesses and others were seeking advice on scriptural approaches to Jehovah's Witnesses. It was an action packed 2 hours of programming you will enjoy! Towards the end a small debate ensued between Joey McCabe an agnostic and myself who is a former JW himself and will be debating on our program later this month!

It's July 4th 2013 and you know what that means...
That's Right it's time to discuss how Brenda Lee won her independence. Brenda was ousted from the Jehovah's Witness faith long ago, and when this happened she even lost her family, thanks to her mother using her ex-communication as an excuse to ban her from the household.
Since then she has written a powerful book which launched her in the public eye; "Out of the Cocoon: A Young Woman's Courageous Flight from the Grip of a Religeous Cult." After which she became one of several early-2000s ex-JWs who became very effective at casting the governing and publishing arm of the Witnesses-the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society-in a bad light.
Ms. Lee is a highly sought after expert in Mind-Control, and religious deprogramming. She has told her story on various talk shows and networks like WEtv.
This is host Chris Stevenson's 2nd 3600seconds interview with an ex-Jehovah's Witness. Please call or respond in the comment section by scrolling down near the bottom of this page.
Join hostess Brenda Golden and guest Majick Ravenhawk as they discuss what "Divide and Conquer" means and does in Indian Country. From the very beginning of colonizers invading this land, their strategy to divide and conquer the indigenous populations was effective. That strategy is a learned behavior that Indian Country has adopted subconsciously partially because of historical trauma and lateral violence. .
Historical trauma has a significant impact on the physical, emotional and spiritual well being of Native Americans. At the core of Native American psychology, historical trauma manifests itself in the social and personal issues prevalent in our communities including substance abuse, mental health problems, domestic violence, child abuse, depression, anger, and loneliness.
Our people have been oppressed for a very long time and, now some of our own people have become the oppressors. This is called lateral violence. The most common behaviors associated with lateral violence that prevent positive change from occurring include gossiping, bullying, finger pointing, backstabbing and shunning. These behaviors are becoming increasingly common on Facebook and Twitter. However, we do not want our own people and our supporters taking to these kinds of tactics to advance themselves within any movement. If someone (or someone’s) making you feel like you are being undermined or even feelings of sabotage of success or growth, then you may be a victim of lateral violence. The root cause of this is actually colonization. It is not our way to behave like that to one another. We do not make people feel isolated, alone and rejected.
