    Strange they should argue over something there's a clear WT ruling on.

    It's clear but a little vague at the same time. It's the Watchtower way!

    From freddo's post:

    Whether a disfellowshipped person sits next to a relative or next to any other member of the congregation should not be a cause for concern as long as he behaves properly.


    If all present, including faithful relatives, are endeavoring to respect Bible principles relating to disfellowshipping, and it is not becoming a cause for stumbling to the brothers

    Assuming that all the elders were aware of the quoted article there could have been disagreement over whether the DF'd person was behaving properly, whether the relatives were "endeavoring to respect Bible principles" regarding DF'd people (watchtower speak for no undue association, I suppose), or whether it was stumbling others.

    There is plenty of room there for interpretation and disagreement.

    Reminds me of a newly appointed elder who when he was an MS and I was on the literature counter, glared and lunged at the brother next to me because that brother was slow with the magazines. The anger and vitriol in his eyes that night betray his true nature. He should never have been made an elder.. There must be many others within such ranks who have ' issues....
