    Like Dr. Graham at a pub and in his hand a soft drink bottle.

    20 yrs ago I met one of the Catholic priests in a bar/grill (of course this little bar on Saturday lunch the kids outnumbered the adults 2 to 1). He had a Hawaiian shirt and shorts on. Granted the church was 2 blocks from that bar and he had just finished mowing the lawn, but still it’s just kinda a wtf.

    Priests take a vow of celibacy, not sobriety. Most of the priests I know drink occasionally

    They drink everyday when they celebrate Mass and partake of the wine.

    Love the expression on Ruthie’s face in the first panel!
    Totally bewildered.

    If I had to listen to everyone’s confessions, I probably would have a few drinks too.

    Oh, I think Ruthie may have a stronger grip on reality than any one in MY family does.

    From a real priest: Hearing confessions does not mean that we make any effort to remember all the sins.

    And, while we have a “drink” at every Mass, it’s pretty much a sip. One per hour or two. Not enough to get a buzz.

    But it is amusing how Rose assumes everyone in the Saloon is there for nefarious purposes, and headed to Hell—except the Pastor, who must be doing good.

    I believe most clergy are allowed to stop by for a drink…

    @bmonk; au salut!
    It used to torture my pore mother and ‘her side’ of the family when I’d hang around with Catholic kids and go to ‘their’ functions.
    A lot more adventurous than the cold, creaky, somber Methodist gatherings that preached a scary hell and damnation if I didn’t ‘get right with God’ and all..
    I do believe that the Monks of Europe invented/preserved the best recipes for wine, brandy (burnt wine) and some pretty darned good top-shelf whiskies !
