    If men are not supposed to have beards then why did the Creator put facial hair on men?

    I remember bringing this point up with an elder. He gave the usual spiel about "community standards". I told him that the Sears catalogue had male models with beards.

    I don't know of any culture or locality that does not generally accept men having beards

    Watchtower culture of course.

    and i am with JW leaks, I said the same thing to some friends earlier today, I think this is giving Prince a post mortem pass on facial hair since he is being lauded as a devout witness in the media and no one will say different.

    I'm kinda surprised they didn't snark on 'hipsters' much like they did on metrosexuals.

    Just take Tony Tightpant's script and change the words 'metrosexual' and 'tight pants' with 'hipster' and 'beard'.

    Like some of you have suggested, it would appear they are taking heavy fire on this issue.

    Enough that they had to address it in their usual confusing way.

    When you are a group whose sole direction is to REact rather than have to be vague until you see which way things are blowing!

    Dear writing department,

    we would like you to prepare an article which clearly layes out our position on beards. To summarize it, brother Tony would like to remark Beards are not for christians but only for "transvestites, drug users, mexicans and other perverts", brother Morris points out all jews had Beards and in fact is obligatory under the mosaic law and brother lett remarks it is not something the bible teaches a specific position on.

    please state our position in simple terms suitable for instructing the Christian congregation in the coming decades and importantly with full scriptual support.

    with Christian love,

    the governing body.

    The scary thing about all this, is that I actually remember a few Elders wives who had beards.

    Such hypocrites, with their double standards!
