I took a stand yesterday for something I believe in. Drinking. I don't mean Mel Gibson drinking, I mean a glass of wine with dinner, or a couple of free drinks at the slots in Vegas drinking.
Why would I take a stand for drinking? I guess I thought it was a right that I didn't want to give up. Why would I think about giving it up? I was contacted about interviewing for a job at a very religious organization. First they asked me if it was ok that they couldn't pay me as well as other places because they are member supported. (well . . .) Then, they asked me if I could "submit" to their leader (a very conservative preacher/politician that I have often questioned) because they thought he was being led by God (snork. led where?). Then, they asked me if it would be a problem if I wasn't allowed to drink (or do drugs) - on or off the campus.
That was the last straw. I'm a religious person. I go to church. I pray. I drink. Jesus turned water into wine people! I'm not saying become an alcoholic, but geesh!
