What gets me is how some are so willing to lie about the history of alcohol including its relevance in the Bible simply because they can’t handle their own weaknesses. IMHO, it is about control, nothing more, nothing less.

That it is. I couldn't control it so I quit.

As a former Southern Baptist-—and a complete teatotaler-—I agree. The Bible is clear on wine, and all the proscriptions are against drunkenness, not having a drink. I just hate the taste of alcohol, the way my brother-in-law can’t stand the case of coffee—but drinks plenty of beer.

That would seem the most likely reason. Wouldn't it be better to simply say, if you can't stop at one drink, you shouldn't have the first!

The ban on alcohol for the problems of the few seems an awful lot like the left trying to ban guns...
