My son worked out in the hot summer in NC and had his hair all shaved off down to about 1/4" so he would but get so hot. The Elders would not let him handle the mikes because of his hair being considered too short. They told him it looked like he was a skin head.
There's no pleasing these goombas. First, they have braindead articles warning against the brothers having their hair too long, and then with the same tongue, they go and bash another brother for having his hair too short. They did the same thing with the length of the sisters' dresses. You know how they're always whining about "dressing modestly" and how the sister's skirts should be below the knee, right? Well several years ago, we had a talk in our Hall (local needs), because some of the sisters were wearing skirts and dresses that were "too long". Yes, we had to be careful that we didn't become "slaves to fashion" by wearing "the latest" or whatever was in vogue. Don't you know that wearing skirts that are too long is just one short step away from 'postacy?
This is such a negative organization. What would they do if everyone suddenly started averaging 30 hours a month in Service, if no one ever missed a meeting and we all gave all our cha-ching to the WWW? If everyone dressed like they were auditioning for a part in Leave It To Beaver and no one ever committed adultery or fornication, if no one ever drank too much or did drugs or questioned anything the GB ever said.
They'd STILL find things to complain about because they're simply not happy unless they're bitching about something----anything. After all, that's the best way to keep someone down.
