>>I used to live next door to a sikh in Mississippi. He would down a bottle of Johnny Walker black every night. He didnt have the special underwear or carry a knife, but he NEVER shaved his face
I’m pretty sure alcohol is not banned in the Sikh religion - could be wrong though. But, yeah, most of us pick and choose to some degree which religious laws we follow and which we overlook. Did he cut his hair? Can’t see why he would do that and not facial hair.
Sikh rules are no intoxication. So that would mean no alcohol. Probably not everyone follows the rules, just as in every religion not everyone follows.
