    Yes, it's just that the JW's wanted to look totally different than the priests. So instead of a black shirt and little white thing (like a tie) that the Catholics wear, JW's wear a white shirt and dark ties.

    Just a different uniform.

    Yes, there is. The priest's role is spiritual. Elders have a juridical role.

    Priests can't do anything like disfellowshipping. Disfellowshipping is relatively frequent. Excommunication is very rare.

    Priests never cross-examine like elders.

    Priests also generally have more training and education.

    Chariklo: 'The priest's role is spiritual. Elders have a judicial role.'

    Priests serve to listen to the flock. Elders serve as judge and jury of the flock. Sad but true!
