Beards galore at the Assembly

    Just because God created man with beards doesn't make it right for men to wear beards.

    This is direct violation of Anthony Morris's admonishment of brothers dressing in

    Metrosexual fashion . Heads are going to role and disfellowships are going to occur.

    Hi there truthexplorer. Maybe we were at the same assembly because I noticed the same thing. I heard a rumor that in one cong in our circuit 4 brothers wear beards and are "used", none are elders though. Apparently, all 4 got notes from their doctors about an extreme skin condition being aggravated by shaving. And they gave the notes to the elders. The elders then gave a local needs talk on not shunning those in the hall who wear beards due to a medical condition. Evidently, the talk had to be given because there was such a rukus about it in that cong as well neighboring congs. Hilarious! Grown men have to get a doctors note to give the elders regarding facial hair....?

    In my cong 3 MS bearded. 2 with 3-day-beard, one with a real beard, something like the picture 1 from Finkelstein. No problem, no talk by the elders or so. The full bearded guy also pray for the cong. So beard is no way to step down.

    Could it be that BALLS are beginning to drop, and these men could be awake or just don't respect the current Governing Body's instructions?

    I often wear a scruff just high enough to be seen, and get a long stare, but not enough to be 'spoken to' about it yet.

    I too am interesting on where this was. I have yet to see any beards at my assemblies or conventions in the midwest USA. Ive heard that some locations, specifically Northern Europe, are a little more tolerant.
