I wish religion would just stay the fark out of all the fun stuff in life.

I wish the militant atheists would quit taking offense....at everything religious.
It just flies in the face of that whole religious freedom thing the founding fathers supported.
It's freedom of religion, not freedom from it.
You're not forced to participate, and if you don't honestly want to, I'd rather you didn't.

Baptist joke. When you go fishing how do you keep your Baptist friend from drinking all your beer? Bring along another Baptist.

It's funny cause it's true.

bsharitt: CeroX: bsharitt: There are a lot of teetotaler protestant churches out there that would not be behind this. What's funny is that a lot of these churches are ones that believe in a literal translation of the bible for almost everything(i.e. creationists), but will happily assume that wine when consumed by Jesus was just grape juice.

according to my family, they had a different kind of wine back then, and it wasn't as alcoholic but that sort of wine cannot be made or found today...

Oh, I know. I grew up in such a church. I've always thought it odd they would fight so hard for the literal interpretation of so much, but hand wave that little bit.


If you have to start lying to yourself and others about your holy text in order to get it to conform to your contemporary take on it, maybe it's just not the religion for you.

Oddly, they'd be better off as Muslims in terms of consistency.

Wine during Roman times was heavily diluted.  It was considered barbaric to drink undiluted wine.  And the reason everybody drank it was because it was safer then water.
