A Beard Maverick
He will have been counselled by an elder. If persistent, his privelages will be removed if the Cong overseer is sticking rigidly to WT policy. Not even allowed to do mics
Ok so it is interesting that you are talking about this today! Although I am already out of the JW cult mentally I pretend to be in when talking to family and friends so my friend told me about another brother in the hall who has been wearing a beard for 2 weeks. Suddenly another brother started to wear one also. The elders noticed this trend, contacted the branch for advice. I do not have any more info but my guess is they will try to quash this out ASAP! They must not let this spread! Oh no! The terrible evil beards!

If your elders have to call headquarters for advice on what to do to someone wearing a beard...
My last big Org-wellian Rally, at break spotted a bearded
fellow walking all alone
He had a badge but was all alone
He looked DFed actually
So I introduced myself
He's a tailor really nice guy
I believe he was an immigrant
I'm pretty sure he was looked on as a subversive
Good thing he had a badge
The black suited security with wrist phones would've been following him
My beard actually caused the CO to write a
BAD REPORT about the CongregationTM
after his visit
COBE showed it to me
They're more concerned with THIS than Bible principles
Must have a good report from "Mother"
Um I thought that not "stumbling" anyone was the point here
That's right, you can't stumble appointed Bros
Only sisters and others (sarcasm)
"Drag him out to the alley and give him a good working over
That'll put the fear of God into the bearded fellow!!"
Your fellow workers,

Thanks for all the great responses! Only surrounding JW land could there be so much discussion on men's facial hair styling. Funny how much judgement beards have brought in over the years--always a sign of a rebellious heart, LOL!
