POLL: Does This Beard-Growing Newly-Released Bishop Still Have a Testimony?

KENNEWICK, Wa. - Newly-released Bishop Garth Shumway of Kennewick Central Ward is growing a beard, sources say.

KENNEWICK, Wa. – Newly-released Bishop Garth Shumway of Kennewick Central Ward is growing a beard, sources say.

After five service-filled faithful years some ward members are discouraged by Shumway’s freshly furry face. Many are beginning to doubt his integrity, asking themselves if his ruggedly handsome beard is external evidence of his internally crumbling testimony?

We at The Sunday Pews invite the public to make an analysis of the testimony and facial hair in question, and to judge Shumway through the poll below:

 

Is Bishop Shumway falling off the deep end? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

  1. It’s ridiculous to judge people for their facial hair alone!

    We should judge him if he ALSO wears a colored shirt to church, a cartoon tie, drinks diet coke, says dammit if he slams his hand in the car door, rides a motorcycle in his leathers, sits on the back row in sacrament meeting, uses “born again” lingo when describing the Atonement, has FHE on a day that isn’t Monday, or any number of other clues.
    If he does all these things, then his private testimony suddenly affects me and becomes my business. 😂

  2. This beard growing must be stopped immediately! Someone has to go to the stake president, so the former Bishop can be properly counseled. I lived in a ward where the bishopric all grew beards, soon one could look around and see that all the righteous men of the priesthood had beards. They all used the flimsy excuse of acting in a play about Jesus to be put on for the community near Christmas time. If this is allowed to be continued, they will be playing games of pulling sticks after church on Sunday!

    Trek preparation should not only include walking 5 to 10 miles a day at least 2 months before the event, but also men and women, young and old, should let their body hair grow profusely in order to put more realism into the Trek. The bishop and his counselors, as well as all leaders and teachers should refrain from shaving any part of their body for six weeks before the Trek to set an example. This practice could become the new “Mormon Lent.:
