Local Church To Host Beer Festival

Not really, but this is no different:

Cypress Baptist Church in Benton, Louisiana is hosting the Cypress Outdoor Expo on September 17, 2009 beginning at 5:30pm.

The price of admission is free. . . . Hunts, Guns, Bows, Knives, and much more.

Guns and gospel, yeah!

I understand this is an event designed to increase church membership; that’s the purpose of the group organizing it. I also do not think there is anything “sinful” about owning and using guns. In other words, I don’t think I’ve ever read anything in the Bible that warns against responsible gun ownership. Of course, it says nothing against responsible drinking, either. But as a recovered Baptist, I would bet dollars to donuts the business meeting discussion would have been much livelier if instead of a gun show, someone had suggested a beer tasting in order to attract the type of person who would not otherwise come to church but who “would come to see a display of world-class [b]eer.”

On a related note, why do you have to take more than one Baptist fishing with you?

If you only take one, he’ll drink all your beer.
