I recently had to take a trip with my family to Bethel. It was a bit torturous for a secret apostate as you can imagine. But mostly just so boring. Walking around looking at the different machinery that you couldn’t pay me to be interested in learning about. Why do people visit here more than once in their life, it’s just a bunch of machines and printeries, who cares? We even were privleged enough to get to go down down stairs and see the heating and cooling system, how awesome!!
And parents are supposed to want to bring their kids here more than Disney world? It is so much more special and important to show your child a big printing machine and a cardboard poster of Caleb and Sofia than a fun and exciting amusement park or a beautiful beach. I feel so sorry for people who travel half way across the country or the world and drag their kids along with them.
Also, did you know that at meal times, women are not allowed to sit at the end of a table, or the foot or whatever they call it, only men are allowed to sit there, because it represents the “head” of the table -_-. I almost sat there because the seats were running out, and I was told sorry, no women allowed to sit there. Unbelievable!!! They really have to enforce their sexism with the smallest things??
I did think it was funny though, how whenever I asked someone about the olympic sized heated swimming pool, they acted very awkward and uncomfortable, like we weren’t supposed to know about it! I thought I would give it a try and ask if we could see it, of course we could not ;)
