Wow, brain fart.  Yeah, I knew it would be one of those denominations that I would feel stupid about not recognizing, after I had it spelled out for me.  The acronym just wasn't clicking.

I've heard some about the level of shunning that the Seventh-Day Adventist Church does.  Isn't it similar to the degree to which the Mormons go?  I was going to compare it to the Scientologists, but I don't think any religion goes as far as those guys go, in terms of cutting off contact with anyone not in the cult.

Meh, that's insane when they just cut off contact like that.  I've heard of plenty of fundamentalist nutjobs cutting off their kids, financially, or making their kids' lives a living hell as long as they're still financially dependent upon their parents.  But the parents generally keep open a channel, preaching constantly and making the kids seriously think about cutting off contact, themselves.  The idea of just breaking contact with any children who leave the church ...

I mean Christ, I know the SDA church is a bit cult-like, but damn.

What's the SDA?  I'm not familiar with that one, at least by acronym.

When you say excommunicate, to what degree do you mean?  Are you basically completely estranged from your family and your previous social group?  At least you've got a local atheism group to get involved with.  Are you close enough to the urban area of Omaha to be active there?
