If a person has inner demons that gives him or her the propensity to abuse his children, he will do it whether he is sober or drunk.

Alcohol lowers your inhibitions, so if you have a pre-disposal to be violent, your ability to NOT act on your violent tendencies is lowered. You need not look very far to see that abused children report that their beatings usually took place when Daddy had been drinking.

People CHANGE when they are drunk. People will freely do things when they are drunk - that they would never seriosly consider doing when they are sober.

“People CHANGE when they are drunk. People will freely do things when they are drunk - that they would never seriosly consider doing when they are sober. “

Quite true but irrelevant to the discussion.

This is about whether it is a sin to drink, not whether it’s bad for society.
