Just my Taft Neal view: The alcohol witch hunt
By Taft Neal
I read article after article on the pros and cons of legal sale of spirits in the area, I in my own personal opinion have realize that history has started to repeat itself.
Long ago Christians of a small community that was as faith based as our own, conducted witch hunts based on their long standing traditions.
It is happening again.
I see vote No signs in many religious facilities all over the area; but why?
What are they afraid of?
Would economic growth really be that bad for the community? I doubt that the town will turn into a drunken orgy five minutes after the first beer is sold.
There was an old saying that my great grandmother often said, "Never trust a preacher that has to advertise." There are many many more issues that the clergy of the community could rally against - drugs, child abuse, poverty.
Guess they don't make fancy little signs for that!
But as it was long ago - good book in one hand, torch in the other - all for an issue that shouldn't be an issue: Maybe the men of god should examine themselves, Jesus never needed funny little signs.
Just my Taft Neal view.
