It is also a fact that some of the very first 2x2 preachers slept under the stars until Cooney made Irvine rich enough to build copies of Faith Mission portable halls (that the 2x2 preachers then lived in). Then some of the 2x2 preachers noticed that there were people ready to join 2x2ism who could not or would not sell all they had and give it to Irvine. And those 2x2 preachers found comfortable housing and regular meals in the homes of such would-be 2x2s. They pressured Irvine from around 1903 to 1908 before Irvine at last officially sanctioned the "meetings in homes" addition to his preacher only gospel. And from the time Irvine did allow non-preaching 2x2s to exist, such 2x2s were held far below the status of the preachers - which is still the case today within 2x2ism. Non-preaching 2x2s and the meetings in homes addition to Irvine's original peacher only gospel was nothing more than a second financial fraud that existed before any Bible verses had been twisted in order to appear to support that additional bit of so called "good news" -- it was only "good news" for the now fake "homeless" preachers who soon boasted of gaining many homes by giving up their own home right within their so called gospel meetings.
As far as celibacy is concerned, I never heard anything from workers regarding human sexuality except that it was what "pigs do." And while the 2x2 preachers held Jesus and the apostles up as the 'example' for 2x2 preachers, sexless preachers was only implied in their messages of that '12526example' -- never clearly taught or spoken of in all the years I attended 2x2 meetings. We just filled in the blanks that were (purposely) left blank by the workers.
So, adfter learning that workers were the wosrt liars I ever saw in my whole life, it came as no surprise to me to learn of their sexual capers that date from the founder onward. I actually suspected that workers were the biggest sexual fackes before I learned of the first worker convicted of CSA.
