Bishop Bill back with your next installment of “You’re the Bishop.” Just to be clear, the examples I am using have been changed enough that not even my wife or former counselors in the bishopric would recognize who I am talking about.
There is a young man in your ward who seems to push the limits on the clothes he wears. Both his parents are active, but they seem to be struggling with him. He is worthy to pass the sacrament, and he even wears a white shirt to church on Sundays. But sometimes he wears loud rock band tee shirts beneath his white shirt (like “Led Zeppelin”) that are plainly visible. His belts have spikes all the way around them. There is a chain that hangs from his pocket that connects to his wallet. One Sunday while passing the sacrament, he wears a very large skull buckle. It is very large and obvious to everybody what it is. Another Sunday he wears a Confederate flag belt buckle.[poll ID =”96″]
Would your answer change if he lived with no father in the home? Would your answer change if there was a black family in the ward who noticed his Confederate belt buckle? Discuss.
