I can confirm that many Bethelites imbibe too much. Everyone I knew and visited, when I asked what gift I could bring it was 2 bottles of some high end liquor. I went to parties at Bethel and was astonished at the amount that others were drinking. I even knew Bethelites that bought it for Bethelites too young to legally purchase it! One time these young men got bombed and decided to play tackle football in the back 40 out of sight around midnight. One fell and broke his leg and they come up with some plausible excuse. My estimation of the superior holiness of jws at Bethel evaporated.
I can say the same about Friday parties at hotels before Saturday and after sessions on Saturday attended by elders and their wives.. The trash cans would be overflowing with empties (I wondered what the maids thought?) There were many a judicial matter that came out of those parties. BTW, hubbie and I were invited but when we saw the orgy going on, we left. Wow!
