Today’s Gospel lesson reminds me of a silly rule that I happened upon when I moved to the Deep Souh. Apparently some stores won’t sell alcoholic beverages on Sunday mornings.
Yep, you read that correctly. You cannot buy even beer or wine in some places in the Deep South on Sunday mornings before noon.
Tell me, what purpose does this law serve? We Anglicans consider wine to be among the two elements necessary for our Holy Sacrament. And anyhow, Prohibition did not work.
Some rules are made by people merely for the sake of making rules.
