Flora Jessop in CHURCH OF LIES (see previous post..) tells about her experience with "shunning"...
When she returned from running away with her friend, she expected to be shunned. (page 65) She defined shunning according to FLDS beliefs as "all love and affection is withheld".. In her mind, she deserved it. But, her mother just put her arms around her and loved her. Her Dad on the other hand, reacted differently. Later in the book, Flora describes being shunned for 2 years as she was confined to her room. She had no contact with her Mom or Dad. That was her reward for running away. She would work all day and then be confined to her room. On page 83, she describes the emotional toll the shunning was taking on her. Though my time of being shunned was not that severe, I could relate very much to the emotional toll that shunning and isolation had on her. Why would Flora "expect" to be shunned? Could it be she had seen others be shunned and had actually shunned those "worthy" of being shunned? Yes, from personal experience, I would say that shunning was no secret to her. She had broken the rules of the sect. She knew how others had been treated when rules were broken. My experience in a strong controlling group mirrors Flora's in many respects. Flora encouraged her to "..go back and read her books. I guarantee you, God doesn't say, "Throw your family away like trash.". (because they believe differently..) The conversation was all to familiar. The practice of shunning is a common trait of many cult groups. (Please, read the Terms of Use for this website...) Technorati Tags: FLDS, Flora Jessop, Leaving a Cult, shunning Book Review: Church of LIES by Flora Jessop The book CHURCH OF LIES written by Flora Jessop and Paul T. Brown is revealing and sad in many ways. Flora was born into the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). She was born into the sect that would eventually be led by the now imprisioned- Warren Jeffs. She credits many folks for helping her and starts by saying the book's purpose is not about blame. The work Flora Jessop and others do to help those wanting to break free from FLDS is praiseworthy and admirable in EVERY sense of the word. (Please, read the Terms of Use for this website.....)
