Resolution Concerning Facial Hair

Is it true that the UPCi has passed a resolution concerning facial hair within the last few years?

I would think it would have been broadcast all over AFF if true...

I guess if they did it wasn't something that would have been voted on during the annual GC. Do they this from time to time where they pass such just based on some general board decision?

I thought it showed leniency towards beards, and meant no disrespect in posting it.

I think the position is something like this:

Quote:
For district functions, our platform guidelines prohibit facial hair on men, because of perceptions of the possible symbolism. Since it is a cultural rather than a scriptural issue, in the local church I handle this matter according to Romans 14. . . There is room for legitimate differences of opinion on this matter, but not ridicule or condemnation.
