"Drinking Beer Is Wrong"

So declares this press release about the results of some poll by some website called ChristiaNet, which claims to be the "the world's largest Christian portal".

It's times like these that I'm really, really glad the Church isn't a democracy.

Viva the Magisterium!

If we'd voted among Christians in the 4th century, maybe 51% would have declared procreation wrong!

Well i'm a life-time Pioneer so have never had a drink of alcohol ever!In reland it's called 'taking the pledge'.

Mrs. Jackie Parkes,

Like you, my wife does not imbibe.

While on the one hand I myself love the occasional (or not-so-occasional) beer or glass of wine, I do have a certain admiration for those who swear off the stuff completely -- a sense of admiration not entirely unlike that which I have for those who willingly embrace "celibacy for the Kingdom".
