I Can Only Conclude One Thing From This Resolution

There is an underground Baptist movement to start manufacturing, advertising, distributing and consuming alcoholic beverages.

Why?

Because, according to World Magazine's Blog...
"During their national convention, Southern Baptists took the time to address two huge pressing theological issues - beer and blogs. The convention passed a resolution in 'total opposition to the manufacturing, advertising, distributing and consuming of alcoholic beverages.'"

Logically, the only reason it would be necessary to spend time passing such a resolution is if Baptists are spending a lot of time in those pursuits.

Oh, dear Baptist brothers...Baptist Beer (or better yet, Baptist Brewski) has such a ring to it, I'm surprised nobody has come up with the idea yet.

How about just sticking to preaching the gospel and baptizing people?



And, by the way, with all the talk about beverages, you're making me thirsty.

A bit early for me to have a beer at the moment but maybe I'll drink to your health later. I have a couple Rolling Rocks in the fridge.

Cheers!

I do not believe what I just read over at Worldview. Where to start...

"Do you think if we spent less time blogging we might have more time to do some baptizing," asked Welch.

"Maybe if they spent more time reading Lutheran blogs, they might save a few more souls of infants through baptism.", replied TK of Katie's Beer.

Oh man, I wasn't going to read the comments to that thread...but I did. Good thing I didn't have a beer tonight and good thing I've already made a fool of myself enough for one lifetime, so my tongue and fingers are restrained. Sheesh.

Yes, drink, drink, drink to my health, DMG.

Good one, TK.

And yes, I had to "turn it off", so to speak. You can only take so much of some of that stuff. Ugh.
