    Stupid rules list....

    I will start...

    Number 1) Two people have to witness a sin before it is reported to the Superior Authorities....making me the org the last word in all areas.

    The most stupid rule gets to post it once the GB has judged it the most stupid? Maybe SIMON will be one of the JUDGES....

    Head coverings for women "taking the lead" in spiritual matters like praying or leading a group on the ministry. Usually involving a hanky or whatever's to hand.

    That is the dumbest by far.

    If you have a beard (CANADA), you can't serve as a MS or elder. Some of the nicest brothers I knew had beards... come to think of it, throughout my whole JW career, I only knew 3 that "bucked" the rules and wore a beard... damn, come to think of it, I think they were bikers (driving their Harley's to the KH). LOL :)

    Having to "count" your time in field service. And being reprimanded if you didn't put in enough hours .

    Saw too many wait till the end of the month and make lots of "spiritual" phone calls to make up for not getting their time in. (Not me...I never did that!)

    What about having your spirituality judged by whether your car was 2-door, 4-door or a 7-passenger van??

    Having to sit in a room and have an elder decide if my daughter was "qualified" to be a publisher. I didn't even want to sit thru it, it pissed me off so much. I told my wife, "Who cares if some dweeb approves her or not. Doesn't Jehovah know what she's doing?" Sheesh.........

    Sorry, just had to vent for minute.

    We couldn't have Count Chocula or Boo Berry Cereal either. We couldn't even have the Rice Krispies with the green and red ones in that were made for Christmas.

    Love, Scully
