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.)

Doing a little more current news/current events today and talking a lot about ISIS, the threat of radical Islam, and our complete disregard for God, for common sense, as we work and as our government works at every level in different places- federal but also state and local, to appease and bend over backwards for Muslims and other causes while actively ignoring, shunning, even targeting in some cases Christians. All the while having a president who makes a 5-10 minute speech before running off for his latest golf outing and trying to backdoor climate change agreements with the UN to tackle a fictious "threat" that even if it were real we wouldn't see the worst of it maybe in many of our lifetimes. All I have to say is that it's an interesting time we're living in and a pretty much useless government, useless president, and useless politically correct liberals that we're looking to for "salvation". Wrong headed all the way around. That's at 4:30 Eastern and archived afterward.
On today's show, we are going to be talking about CHURCH SHUNNING.
Have you ever confronted the pastor, or decided to launch your own business/ ministry or disagreed with the vision/ direction of your church? Have you ever been isolated because of it? Better yet, have you stopped attending your church consistently and been shunned because of it? Have you LEFT your IC, and your remaining friends have blacklisted you?

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.

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!
