    "Biblically drunk" is the kind of concept you get when (A) you live in an isolated compound completely cut off from the real world, and (B) within that isolated compound there is a (literally) century-long tradition of obscene overdrinking that is informally condoned, so long as it is not an overt embarrassment (e.g., "well sure, he drank a whole bottle of Jack Daniels in less than an hour, but he walked back to his room under his own power without falling down or puking so he must not have been Biblically drunk").

    I don't believe they have outlined the criteria "Biblically drunk" anywhere have they?

    I don't remember seeing this in the leaked copies of the Flock book.

    On the other hand, they've a fine gradient when it comes to porn and what kinds are disfellowshippable and what kinds are not. It shows where the priorities are.

    One elder told me that drunkendess was "hard to prove". And I was like, "What?"

    It's one of those things that many elders, "Bethel heavies", Governing Body members, and at least one Watchtower President have been guilty of. And yet...some have been disfellowshipped for it. Hayden Covington comes to mind. But the majority seem to avoid any sort of punishment.
