Bible drinking good thought?
"Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those who are in anguish; let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their mysery no more."
Proverbs 31: 6,7

Weirdly enough, in the 19th century a lot of Temperance types had a serious hangup about yeast breads because of the alcohol generated in the rising process. I'm pretty sure that's where most of the modern quick breads (with the possible exception of Irish soda bread) came from, not to mention a whole host of less successful breads (trying to leaven anything heavier than a sponge cake with steam alone tends to be doomed to failure).
The food fads of the late 19th century were heavily driven by religious fundamentalism, and most of them were even battier than some of the stuff people come up with now (though blood type diets and autism/ADHD diet woo certainly compete in the same league).

Remember that "turning water into wine" thing?

It always amuses me to watch them wriggle on this particular hook! They desperately try to make "wine" out to be some fruit juice, while it is clear from the water to wine miracle that the stuff Jesus made was the good mature stuff. You don't mature fruit juice.
And yet they still lie in order to push their own - not god's - agenda of abstinence

Bro. Randy hates Jesus.

Jesus turned water into...what again?

There's Noah right after the Flood, there's the Song of Solomon, and there's Cana (Jesus' first miracle was to turn water into milk, right?)...
So... you were saying?

What about teramesu(sic?) it contains a microscopic amount of alcohol and it's a fucking cake.

One could argue that since this IS "Teens for Christ", he's talking to Teens, for whom it would be illegal (in the US) to drink anything alcoholic. If the laws of the world do not clash with the laws of God, Christians are instructed to follow the laws of the world. But, he's one of FSTDTs favorite punching bags, so I guess he's basically a strawman who can't possibly make a correct point.

No, you're a moron.
What you should be doing is putting to death anyone caught working on a sunday, any kid mouthing off to their parents, or anyone guilty of adultery. The bible says so.
