OK Frenchy, you asked for it you got it!
My pet issue is the conscience thing. Just whos' conscience are they talking about when they us this phrase "it's a conscience issue"?
I have seen things that would be considered plain "wrong", but have been told it is a conscience issue. I have seen other things that I would consider to be a personal "conscience" issue and been told it was no no.
I get the feeling it all depends on who does it, and who complains. Also it depends on what the society puts out in print. Kind of like the voting thing. Last year the article came out about voting being a conscience issue, but I have yet to find an agreement on whether it is or isn't. Some say JW's can now vote if they so desire, others say no way.
Other things are a "conscience" issue, but if you do them you lose all privledges and become a marked person in the congregation.
Anybody else have thoughts on this "conscience" issue?
