are you scared yet?

Baptist minister (pastor? priest? whatever.) uses scare tactics in an attempt to combat the movement to get wine in grocery stores:

Those behind this push in Tennessee have no concern whatsoever for the well being of Tennesseans. They have no sense of compassion for those fighting the addiction of alcohol who will be forced to shop for the staples of life, while being confronted by their personal demon with every turn they make in the store. They feel no responsibility for the broken homes, shattered lives and stolen futures of those who will become trapped by addiction as a result of easy accessibility of high proof alcohol.

Personally, I think the idea of confronting demons at the store sounds pretty awesome -- World of Warcraft meets grocery-shopping. I guess I shouldn't be shocked -- I'm surprised he didn't just say we'll all go to hell.

A good rebuttal here.

    The last time I checked I can get just as drunk off beer as I can off wine.

    They seem a little more frightened than usual--pulling out all the stops now. They know it's imminent.

    I'm just pleased that there will be wine on every aisle.
