    Apparently there was a "petting problem" going on during the meetings. I didn't even know what "petting" was until that particular talk. As a child, I didn't need to hear or have explained to me in explicit detail what petting was. Idiots.

    Toilet etiquette local needs....not so uncommon at the spanish congregations, but for the opposite problem.

    If you come from 2nd or 3rd world countries, you do not flush the "tp". The plumbing can't handle it and you'll find a waste basket next to the toliet.

    So after enough studies come and the clean up crews start whinning enough, presto, local needs talk.

    I remember being quite embarassed for the brotha giving the talk.

    "After a nasty sewer backup, our KH had a talk about the proper disposal of tampons and diapers" yep! Put us down for that one too! I'm in Melb Australia. I was so disgusted with the speaker, he made no effect in trying to find the real reason for the blockage, I felt so sorry particularly for the single sisters who had to hear it, as it turned out once the plumber looked at it , it was because the pipe was cracked and weeds grew in it. The Speaker who was the PO was such a D-Head !

    How the simpsons were EVIL . Something about kids talking back to their parents. The ones who were commenting on why the simpsons were so bad were also the ones who watched it religiously!! After that one I went over to my "friends" and said "hey did you see the episode where...." & "Those new shows like Family Guy & God, the devil & bob are hilarious!" I got a few raised eyebrows from some of the older sisters.

    During the mid 1970's, there was a population explosion in our congregation and I recall that we had around 35 kids of pre-school age. Needless to say, the path to the side door was well-worn, if you know what I mean. The neighbors called several times and spoke with the elders and left messages that they were noticing our hard-line stance with the kids and felt that we were being too harsh. However, the elders paid no attention, and the beatings continued.

    Imagine the shock and surprise, though, when the police came into the hall one Thursday night and stopped the meeting. They stayed for around 20 minutes and interviewed some elders and parents, but they finally did leave with only a warning handed out. It was a different world 25 or 30 years ago, but if this were to happen today, I don't think the police would leave so easily. I think that Child Welfare Services would be called and a lot of parents would be on the hot seat.

    Anyway, at the next Service Meeting, a local needs talk was given discussing the situation, and the elders decreed that we should not take our children outside to discipline them anymore; instead we were to take them into the library and give them their whippings in there!!

    Pornea talks right after a reproval or disfellowshipping.

    The ones about smurfs. It sounded so ridiculous that a blue plastic 2 inch toy was such a danger.

    "Widening Out"

    At first I thought you were going to say they were telling ppl to stop gaining weight! Oh yea, I remember the empty talks about cliques. The elders who gave it never modified their own social circles, they just told everyone else to. And no one did.

    And the edless talks about porno, masturbation, adultery, guilt, bad bad very bad sick world, and how we are so happy to be sooo cleeeannnn an holll yyy

    Ow that's soo true. I know my hubby gets sick of that too. He now missing meetings for a few months and he hasn'd suffered of OCD anymore. (He had 'bad thoughts" - obviously thoughts put in his head by all the talks about porno, masturbation etc.) Guilt guilt guilt.

    We had one about how the sisters dress. The elder discussed nipples showing through, especially when it gets cold!! Everyone was so embarassed they looked at the floor. He also said that sisters should stand against a wall to test if their skirt is too tight. If the skirt is against the wall all the way down, it is ok. Otherwise, it is too tight against her butt and will attract attention.
