The guys at Duck Dynasty announce Duck Dynasty Wines last week as a joint venture between themselves and Trinchero Family Estates winery to produce and sell a Duck Dynast Wine.

Family Ministries a faith and bible organization in Bristol TN removed the Duck Dynasty folks from speaking to a group of teens that had been planned saying the move by Duck Dynasty went against their core values and would send the wrong message to kids

People on twitter voiced their anger at Duck Dynasty saying they had lost their focus, were no longer Christians and were there for the money and wine and were fake

I married a Luthern girl. I new I had found my church when someone asked the pastor to say blessing at our rehersal dinner and he said "Yes, but let me put my beer down first" and he had one in each hand

Water to wine comes to mind.

I firmly believe that the main reason so many people are not Christians has more to do with those who claim to be than the theology of the faith.
I'd put those people in the category of those who put stumbling blocks in front of people and leading them away from the Gospel. Romans 14 comes to mind...

Where in the Bible does it say that alcohol is bad?
It can be bad as in Eph 5:8
"Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,"
and referring to

1 Thess 5: 21
...hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.
Since many people equate alcohol with getting drunk, some other people equate alcohol with evil.

Personally, I don't drink because I don't see the need to. I can enjoy a ball game, party, etc. without feeling the need to drink alcohol. I also don't have to explain to my kids "I know I'm drinking now, but you can't drink until...". Don't have any in my house to temp them. However, as long as you are not getting drunk, then I don't see where the Bible forbids it.

Exactly, there's a difference between having a drink and getting trashed. I like to drink beer but I've never been drunk. (Got close once, found out my out-of-state tolerance is not the same as my in-state tolerance. Ohio has some pretty strong stuff that we don't get here...)

well duh, we drink watered down beer in this state, love going to florida or some other modern state and getting drinks on tap that are higher grade than 3.4.

I wonder how those verses are viewed in countries like England or Germany, where people drink wine and beer regularly. I'm not disagreeing with you - just saying that American Christian culture has really held on to the alcohol is bad theme for a long time, and most probably don't even think about it. In fact, creating such a "law" like that is almost a way to create MORE sin, as people naturally gravitate toward things they can't have.

Romans 14 is very clear when the author writes that he believes all food to be clean (trying to clear up the debate between recently converted Jews and the various gentiles that became believers in Jesus, that following Jewish customs was, perhaps, necessary for some, and for others, not important at all).

Why do you always take two Baptists fishing?

Because, if the boat starts leaking out in the middle of the lake, one can help you bail it out while the other walks to shore to get help?

No, that can't be it, because the one who walks to shore is probably going to drink all the beer that was left in the truck while the other finishes off the beer you brought out in the boat.

One word. Puritans.
