    Identity badges help in identifying who's a JW and who's not.

    thetrueone has the basic reason... Security.

    Attendants will and always have kept a closer watch on persons who have no badge.

    At large venues everywhere some persons try to infiltrate (not just JW conventions) to shoplift,steal or disrupt.

    It is easier to keep track of people if you can disregard those with badges. Now with Photoshop that can be a harder and harder job.

    Me and the hubby always wore the badges as well. It always made holes in my clothes!!! I am sure the badge holders have come a long way now. When my children were born the stinking badges came off----mothers can relate to this----your kids when they are on your lap grab at them or even poke themselves with the edge of holder. If the pin came unhooked your boob would get stuck!! OUCH. Good times.

    Now, your service overseer hands out the badges, and at my hall they already have your name on it.

    Speaking of anal, my congregation, using a stop watch during the Bible highlights, to make sure the comments do not exceed 30 seconds. This of course, is under the direction of the "Slave".

    Since you have to get your name badge from your service overseer, apostates won't get a badge. Making the active JWs wear a badge helps everyone spot the apostates, who aren't good enough to have badges. Then the attendants can follow them around all through the assembly to make sure they don't tell anyone the truth about "the Truth."
