Yes, I think it must be because preserving the community, just as it is, is the highest priority. If fallen away kids are allowed to come back and visit, they could take more people with them.

I suppose it's no different than any other sects or cultures. Hindu parents want their kids to marry Hindus to keep the culture in tact. Catholic or Jewish parents want their kids to do the same even though these days it's less likely to happen.
