So the CO visited my cong and at the MS and elders meeting the brothers were told that those wiht parts on the platforms must not have sideburns, mustaches, beards or shaved heads because it is worldly. As well bright colorful dress shirts are not permitted either because it distracts from the "important message" of the talk.
See?! I was right! The Big Annoucement is going to be about banning coloured shirts for the bros-------again.
On a totally different topic, I was talking to my mom the other day and she was going on about how free she would be in paradise. I reminded her she would still be with my dad (both are JW's). Some how she has this belief that in paradise Jehovah will abolish their marriage and she won't be a married woman anymore. For the record, they do not get along at all and my mom has endured a great amount of emotional trauma from being married to my dad..i won't get into details. SO she believes that jehovah will answer her prayers and let her be single again in paradise. We got into a huge argument on this and at the end i just bursted out laughing..she's trapped isn't she?
If she wants out that badly, she should commit adultery, get DF'd, get divorced, then get reinstated. Or, if she has no desire to get married again, she can always get a legal divorce. She won't be DF'd for that, as long as she doesn't sleep with someone else. Problem solved!
