1. “Strictly speaking, my religion forbids the drinking of alcohol. ”
    Why do they forbid it?
    And seriously? You shouldn’t talk about it because it might tempt someone?

    Religion is a very interesting thing.

  2. A lot of religious sects were formed by puritans or with puritan values. I live my life the way I feel I can without negating a relationship with God. Since there’s little difference between spoiled fruit and alcohol but a little extra time, I don’t quibble over it. I might have a drink (or less than one)– once every 2 years. There are people we know who are very strict about it. They take it very seriously that they might lead someone astray. I don’t believe that I have that much power over a person who randomly reads this… but I guess I’m covering my blog-assets so to speak.
