Ha! Love your comment, Steve! They sure are the equivalent of the pot calling the kettle black!!
(And, feeling silly for a moment -- I could phrase the above comment to you in JW speak: "Yes, and I thought Brother Steve's comment was interesting because it highlights the hypocrisy of the clergy while helping to shed light on ways we can improve ourselves.") Bwhahahaha!!!!
Oh, and as I see my comment to you is now on page two, I will copy and paste your reply, which partially quoted the other poster:
... "But any failure or mistakes on the part of certain elders would not justify an insubordinate attitude on our part."
On the basis of this superficial reasoning, people in other religious groups should not hold their clergy to account - but see them as imperfect men who make mistakes. - Steve2
