Mount Airy Baptists Turn Wine Into Gall

About 100 Mount Airy Baptists say that drinking wine is "not a Christian thing to do," and intend to be obnoxious this weekend to people attending the Mount Airy Budbreak Wine Festival on the obviously sinful streets of Andy Griffith's hometown.

The Baptist preacher leading this sanctified effort said, "We are taking an opportunity to proclaim Christ. We will be holding signs and banners so people driving in and out from the event can see our message-- Jesus saves."

People driving in and out of the event should hold up signs too: "Jesus made wine."
The Gospel of John, Chapter 2:
6. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

7. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

8. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

9. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10. And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk , then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

11. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

Great example of picking at nits while the rats are eating us alive. Let's see some Baptists turn out against war, greed, torture, and hatred towards our neighbors. As I recall, that's what Jesus actually preached against.

I think the Baptists are too busy cleaning their Smith & Wessons for "Bring your Guns to Church Day."
