    The next thing you know the JW police will be wanting to know if you have or are shaving your pubic hair .

    Jehovahs christian Witnesses cant be like the world in general or christendoms religions so off with your pubic hairs.

    We have to be different Jehovah wants it that way.

    In a recent WT gentile Christians without beards were portrayed as being shunned and mistreated by Jewish Christians including Peter with beards. See page 23:

    thanks Smiddy.

    so what about the feminine practice of shaving legs? There must be a wt ruling on that what yes... no.... aarrrrgh!

    WT probably got shares in gillette, that a persons spirituality can be measured on facial hair would even confuse god

    There was a recent "experience" that also mentioned "in passing" () new members having their tattoos removed, too.

    @ smiddy...

    Pretty sure they'd disapprove of pubic landscaping.

    It is becoming more and more widespread "in the world", now.

    Wait......someone in my old hall told me beards are cool now, and he sports one IN THE HALL. Based off a recent WT. So i thought there was a bit of a loosening here no?

    I'm not sure which is worse, JWs obsession with beards or exJWs obsessed with JWs obsession with beards.

  • UnshackleTheChains
    I don't know why the brothers don't simply end this ridiculous rule by growing their beards en masse. That would end this man made rule very quickly.

    I am sure some Witness men would want a beard but I really doubt that most would. Look at most settings just in the normal public, a small percentage of men have beards. I am sure that thing that most Witness men would like is not having to shave for every meeting more would take advantage of that but a full on beard I doubt there would be a large percentage of JW men that would do it.
