Religious Fasting, Muscle Relaxants, WhateverPosted: April 6, 2012
Since it is Good Friday, I have decided to forgo recommending a beer. Since today is the ultimate day of fasting for those Christians who do fast, it is best not to tempt them with a beer selection. Indeed, even if I knew that abstaining from alcohol on Good Friday was in no way beneficial or commanded, it could still be a mistake to entice others to break their fast. Just as St. Paul wrote in his first Letter to the Corinthians, you ought to “take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.”
Also, I have been prescribed a bunch of drugs for a back injury. And if I can’t drink, nobody can drink!
Have a glorious Easter weekend!
