Given Jane submitted her resignation one could presume she wished to stop interacting with members of the church.
- The members of the church have a right to associate with whom they please, even if that doesn't please someone else (e.g. Jane).
- Jane has a right to associate with whom she wishes, but cannot force herself upon someone else.
- The church has no obligation to protect Jane's 1st amendment rights as it is not the government, and there is a separation between church and state which would prohibit the courts from messing with the church's decision about whom could be a member of its congregation.
- Jane, as a former member of the church, presumably knew about the church's control over the lives of people who chose to be a member. So the shunning isn't likely a surprise to here.
- Moreover, she likely knew the consequences when violating the church doctrine, in a church she chose to be in, and one must presume that she consented to whatever the church did.
- There is no mention of any harm to Jane. So there is no basis for a tort claiming injury or loss. She may be delighted to be rid of them for all we know.
- Given this was an issue of a church deciding on the standards for its members, I don't think a court would have any standing on which to issue an opinion or ruling. If it did issue a ruling against the church it would most certainly be overturned on appeal.
Jane's only remedy would be to hop into some sack cloth, dust herself with ashes, and appeal to the church for reinstatement, should she desire that, claiming she is penitent and asking for forgiveness, citing scripture that would support her appeal.
Should that fail, I don't see that she has any choice but to accept that those whom she previously associated with now wished to not associate with her.
Should she wish to hang out w/ members of this church, her rights do not trump those of the others, as they have a right to privacy (we assume) and to not be harassed by someone they do not wish to associate with. They have a right to freedom to choose who they hobnob with, and a freedom of religion which precludes a court compelling them to associate with her.
If she pressed her self upon them she may even fall afoul of trespass or anti-stalking or harassment laws.
It is time for Jane to make some new friends.
