    That's good. You should write scripts for the WT's videos...

    You know, in ancient Jewish culture is was not considered appropriate for men to converse with women in public. It was also considered as sinful, treacherous behavior for a faithful Jew to dine with tax collectors. But Jesus didn't let these societal prejudices stop him from publicly conversing with a Samaritan woman and dining with tax collectors.

    So when Watchtower appeals to local "worldly" view of beards to determine whether or not they should be allowed, are they really following Jesus' example? Aren't they actually being a part of the world by upholding and conforming to, unjust "worldly" stereotypes and prejudices? Shouldn't they be demonstrating that they're no part of the world by refusing to conform to "worldly" prejudices against beards?

    They are blind and foolish hypocrites.

    These 2 recent quotes about beards should be shown to people in the door to door ministry, or somehow shown to non witnesses just to see their reaction. I know its not as important as say, child abuse, but it still is sure to provoke a reaction, or at least a priceless puzzled look.

    Psalms 119:165: Those who love Your law have great peace, And nothing causes them to stumble.

    In some cultures it is considered wrong for women to shave their pubic hair because it is a practice of prostitutes. Now that would make a very interesting WT article or "question from readers".

    just saying!
