A Jehovah's Witnesses official responds (unofficially) to 'Bottlegate' - 2019-04-04
And now Lloyd, Mark O'Donnell, and other ex-JW activists have had a chance to talk about Tony's March 31 trip to the liquor store in a group video chat that we found fascinating and thought you would too.
About 15 minutes in, Mark reads from a letter that a Witness received when they asked a Governing Body "Helper" for some help understanding what Tony was doing buying about $850 of Macallans Scotch (and throwing away the gift boxes) at 11 am on a Sunday morning in the New Jersey town of Ramsey about 25 miles from JW world headquarters in Warwick, New York. (Not only was it a large purchase of expensive Scotch, but Governing Body members like Morris take a poverty vow and wouldn't normally have $850 to spend on whisky. Also, Morris in particular is known for his imperious and judgmental stands on the way Witnesses should comport themselves and even what they should wear, so whatever he wanted the alcohol for, it's just not a good look.)
