Drinking beer is BLASPHEMY ! ! ! !


That's just because God found turning water into beer too difficult. He can be pretty petulant when things don't turn out. ;-)

I actually read one account where they think the Bible was mistranslated (heaven forbid!). When Jesus turned water to "wine" at that wedding feast in Cana it was actually beer.

"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging." That leaves only beer to get a sanctified toot on. I think you must be reading the wrong texts, junior; actually, I'm pretty damned sure of it.

And just in case anyone thinks there is no mention of beer in the Old Testament, behold:
Numbers 21:16 And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water.
Judges 9:21 And Jotham ran away, and fled, and went to Beer, and dwelt there, for fear of Abimelech his brother.
Notice the capitalization of Beer. I think that speaks for itself.
