    It would probably be much easier to list Elders that weren't hypocritical.

    An example of a hypocritical Elder giving a talk is one who is notorious for going way over his alloted time when giving his part.

    Elder gave a talk on not associating with DFd family...local needs part. One family was notorious for acting as if a DFd family member wasn't.

    Week or so later, his daughter - not living at home - was DFd and he continuted to financially support her, gave her a car, had her home for dinner and otherwise acted as if she were not DFd.

    My father used to give talks about marriage and family life, all the while beating the crap out of us kids and my mom. He was an elder who portrayed himself as the holiest of holies; yet at home he was violent and used the foulest of language. Life finally caught up with him one night when he asked my mom to drive him home from the meeting after he gave a talk on keeping oneself spiritually and morally clean. He said his stomach was bothering him. After dropping him off, my mom just felt like something was off. She circled around back home and found his truck missing. She drove around the corner and waited for him to get back. When he got back home, she waited a few minutes then snuck in the house. He was upstairs watching porn movies he had just rented. Strangely enough, after being disfellowshipped and reinstated a couple of times, he is the only one in the family who is still a witness. Now he refuses to have anything to do with his kids because we are either disfellowshipped, or in my younger brothers' cases not in the truth and leading worldy lives. Classic!

    I don’t understand the point of this discussion. Hypocrites are found everywhere (and in-between everywhere, too!) and to my knowledge Jehovah’s Witnesses do not pretend they are immune to the creeps.

    I cannot imagine an example of hypocrisy that is not to be found among the Witness community. They have their fair share or murderers, rapists, pedophiles, thieves, liars, spouse beaters and the lists goes on. So what is the point of this discussion?
