Wearing faded jeans ONLY AS A BETHELITE is a cause for concern for the Governing Body.
I had jeans that were not totally faded as the "world" would consider them. So one freaken' weekend as I passed by a WT building, a tightwod Bethel Elder (now just an Elder) asked me how I was doing (bla bla bla). He said he was giving a public talk that weekend on how we should not be a part of the world. I said, that's nice. Apparently he had the outline with him since he was practicing and he read to me something to the affect of how our attire should not reflect the norms of the world. I said why of course we should not model the world. Then he told me, what do you think of the jeans you are wearing? I said, well, they are not so bad. He said I should reflect on what he said. Dam beotch. I listened to him and changed my pants. I guess I was the bigger beotch. Damm bastard! I wear those jeans now with pride.
Had anyone else known about the faded jeans doctrine?
What do you think of the bastard? No not gumbo. :-)
What should I have done? Should have I undressed right there in front of BrokeBack Mountain Farm???
