Absolutely ridiculous. However, I pointed out that he mentioned three things and you can't just pick one (like most elders do with beards) and leave the other two. That being the case, how many JWs do you know that have stopped drinking or wearing makeup because it "stumbles" others? NO-ONE! So why single out beards?
Stupid American JW culture that forces their opinion on everyone else. The very first item in this week's meeting said that the Greek word for "to stumble" means to "fall into sin" so if a JW says that a brother wearing a beard stumbles them then:
1) They are accusing that brother of sinning by making them stumble, and
2) They themselves are admitting to sinning by being stumbled.
The word "stumble" is mostly misused instead of the words "don't like" by uber-JWs. They really mean that they DON'T LIKE beards, not that beards MAKE THEM STUMBLE. If they really were stumbled, then why are they still loyal JWs and attending meetings?????
Lett's talk is just so ridiculous. "Your right to wear a beard"? It's not clothing you stupid man. That's as idiotic as saying "your right to grow your hair" or "your right to go to the toilet"! If it stumbles my brother then I guess I'll just have to be constipated!!!
