How said it is that many people just will not leave bad enough alone.
They demand that communities be made potentially more dangerous, more violent, more immoral by demanding more of the deadly troublemaker alcohol. (And in this case, on a day originally set aside for honoring, worshiping our creator/protector/redeemer and the source of every blessing.)
Please read the following letter written to a newspaper some years ago by a doctor:
"Recently we saw another preview of Hell in the Parkland Hospital emergency room. a Woman was struck down by a drunken driver, a college student lying semi-conscious following a head-on collision with another drunken driver, who was himself critically injured. the drunk's companion was dead. Four other drunks with lacerations and stab wounds, waiting to be treated.
"Night after night, year after year, the same bloody trail of horror — major auto accidents, stabbings, rapes and wife beatings. Nightly emergencies, treated and released or admitted to the hospital, or pronounced dead on arrival. And almost always the bloody trail is led to theat honored man of distinction — the weekend driver. Almost always, this is the moderate drinker, not the alcoholic.
"I wonder if there is that much joy to be gained, from the total consumption of all the beers and whiskeys made, to equal even a small fraction of the innocent suffering, the damaged bodies, the broken marriages, the discarded children, the total brutalities and crimes that accompany its use.
"What a quiet place our emergency room would be if beverage alcohol were ever abolished from our city!"
On Nov. 6, remember the above description of the true nature of alcohol, and vote against an increase in its sales — especially on the Lord's Day.
Remember also the following indictment against this nation by an American missionary: "God's judgement is being outpoured on this nation because of its flagrant disregard for the Sabbath Day."
Vote against Sunday alcohol sales in Polk County on Nov. 6!
