Jesus would not deny us a pint
I get very puzzled by the number of people who seem incapable of distinguishing between Jesus Christ and the enormous, rather unpleasant bureaucracy that has usurped everything he stood for -- in order to make a very good living out of his wisdom and beliefs.
Apart from the rampant child abuse and dishonesty, which would have had himself overturning tables and emptying temples in rightful anger if he were alive today, I really cannot imagine that Jesus would be against anybody having a drink this Friday.
Why on earth would he? Ignore the ghastly, self-serving, pompous bureaucracies. Have a good time and raise a glass to a great bloke.
