Really don't want to get into a religion debate, as those can get pretty
crazy. I'm born and raised Utah LDS myself, but I know a few ethnic
families and it's interesting to see how their values and heritage is
effected by these situations. All they really want to do is have a bit
of wine with their dinner. Not alcoholics, or lushes. Don't go around
urinating on their nieghbor's bushes, drive drunk, or throw wild
parties. They just like a more formal dinner, as has been tradition.
Interesting how one group see's a store carrying wine as a direct attack
on their values and disrespectfull and the other group see's a store
that refuses to sell them as an attack on their values.
