    It's not just fear of apostates.

    Social networking leads directly to PORNICATION. What starts as an innocent "poke" on facebook, quickly escalates to the Service Overseer running off with a young, single pioneer sister. Things like that never happened before the Interwebs with MySpaceBook came along!

    Of course Billy! NO ONE ran off with someone else's wife before the evil INTERWEBS came along!

    Many Elders are on facebook.

    Loved your Janitor photo, and Caption, Outlaw.


    Only a moron would use without precautions Facebook and the rest of SN. They are spying on you!

    This explains it:

    If any man is reaching out for an office of overseer, he is desirous of a fine work. 2 The overseer should therefore be irreprehensible, a husband of one wife, moderate in habits, sound in mind, orderly, hospitable, qualified to teach, faithful only to 3 not a drunken brawler, not a smiter, but reasonable, not belligerent, not a lover of money, 4 a man presiding over his own household in a fine manner, having children in subjection with all seriousness; 5 (if indeed any man does not know how to preside over his own household, how will he take care of God’s congregation?) 6 not a newly converted man, for fear that he might get puffed up [with pride] and fall into the judgment passed upon the Devil. 7 Moreover, he should also have a fine testimony from people on the outside, in order that he might not fall into reproach and a snare of the Devil.

    8 Ministerial servants should likewise be serious, not double-tongued, not giving themselves to a lot of wine, not greedy of dishonest gain, 9 holding the sacred secret of the faith with a clean conscience.

    10 Also, let these be tested as to fitness first, then let them serve as ministers, as they are free from accusation.

    They WTBTS has nothing left at this point.

    It brought down many dictatorships - and many dictatorships still ban these forms to keep their power. The watchtower is just copying....
