The county in which I reside in Mississippi recently turned down a couple’s request to open up a local brewery. Here is the local news coverage Long story short, the business would have brought a sizable amount of tax revenue to the county and probably a few jobs. Did you also know MS is also one of only 3 States in the Union to outlaw home brewing by individuals? What could possibly be the reasons for this seemingly backwards thinking? Hmmm. Same reason we still can’t buy beer on Sundays in some places in this hick State.
I have made the coorelation between organized religion and ignorance on many occasions. It’s uncanny how many times you can find your “Church Leaders” at the forefront of the lets not move forward movement. Here’s a news flash for you hypocritical jackasses. People like alcohol. If you doubt that, do a little research on the overwhelming success that was prohibition. I know this irritates you to your core because you really, REALLY want to impose your “supposed” morality on the entire country.’ Let’s get prayer back in our schools!’… ‘Beat your male children if they start acting gay’…‘Let’s impose religious law across the land…like Sharia…’ Wait a second…
I think you should buy some property, put up a barbed wire fence and just go ahead and form a proper cult and be done with it. But then, of course, you wouldn’t be able to stick your aloof, holier than thou noses in what everybody else was doing. Maybe you would have more time to work on your personal relationship with God. Now that is a novel idea.
Look, I understand the grey area between standing tall for what you believe and diving into outright debauchery. I don’t allow (much) hardcore cussing on my Facebook page and can only listen to the country stations when my kids are in the car. The difference is I am not out there telling you that’s what you should be doing. Figure out what’s important folks.
