Against God's Word

NEWS: Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has called for a special legislative session convening this week. In addition to hammering out a state budget, the Governor tacked on a provision for a law to be passed allowing alcohol sampling licenses. This is so bourbon can be served at the World Equestrian Games this fall and from now on throughout the entire state.

Currently, the bourbon industry can only provide free samples on their own properties. Gov. Beshear said that, "this will have a permanent impact on our state." I agree, though for very different reasons. He touts that giving away free liquor samples is good for tourism, but what does the Bible say about giving alcohol away? "Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him..." - Habakkuk 2:15

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: We can stand up for God's Law and not for man's law just to make money. This law will be voted on or before Friday, May 28. Before then, you can leave a message for your legislators expressing opposition to this expansion of alcohol. To learn who your state-level Senator and Representative are just click here.
