One of the worst things a person can do to another human being is to use guilt and shame to force them into submission. This is what bullies do to people they want to dominate. Sadly, many W------ use it repeatedly on former believers. It’s a cheap way of getting us to shut up and nod when they’re talking, even when we don’t agree with what they’re saying. Any W------ who pulls this one — especially when that person is the ex-W------’s parent — is the one who should be ashamed. Most W------ will step off their pedestal as soon as they see it isn’t working on me. But I find the attempt offensive. I don’t like being bullied and nothing can justify that. Don’t do it. It’ll only backfire in the end.
