    By reliable sources, Bethel US has recorded in 3 years:

    - 80 "out of the closet" confirmed

    - 200 departures requested by Bethelites, where same reason is suspected.

    - 20 censured ones "returning to the flock"

    Some NY clubs are delighted to receive and welcome the new boys and girls in town :)

    Is the reliable source Johnny the Bethelites?

  • sp74bb

    No, other reliable sources inside US Bethel.

    That's what happens if you don't listen to Tony!

    Kingdom Halls are full of closeted gays. it's no surprise there are lots in Bethel as well.

    I'm straight, but I've got a rudimentary "gaydar".

    In our congregation, a pretty clearly gay guy went to Bethel last fall for a one-year assignment. He hasn't been sent home, at least not yet. But I'd be willing to bet when his one year is up he'll be back.

    It must be Tony3's great look that attracts the gayes! I am not even gay but if he packed that body into spanks or just tight pants I would take a serious life decision!

    Of course, this has some historical precedence. This occurred in the last 60's or early 70's didn't it?

    I think just about everyone can name a few brothers and sisters in their Congregation that folks used to whisper about for appearing to be gay. I can remember quite a few from just my one Cong and I've mentioned several times before here that I use the name ShirleyW to show the hypocrisy about how da troof handles that, The name I use and her "partner" started attending my KH when I was around 9 or 10, I'm now pushing 60 and they're still faithful servants of Jah.

    My grandpa's sister had a lifelong "companion" who claimed to be anointed. As a little girl, I thought they were mean old ladies but I had to go visit them anyway. They acted strange, may because they couldn't just be themselves.

    When i was at Wallkill like 6 years ago, Max Larson had the morning worship and it was about uncleanliness. He went on a long rant about pornography and said the US Branch Committee deals with 2 cases of someone caught viewing internet pornography at Bethel every week, and they were almost always dismissed, so that's about 104 people a year kicked out due to porn.
