What does the Catholic Church do to wipe out the drink evil which causes so much misery in so many homes? We Protestants fight for prohibition.

The Catholic Answers

The Catholic Church drills into every one of her children that drunkenness is m unjustifiable sin. But we refuse to admit that prohibition should be enforced pon all. The particular abuses do not justify so sweeping a thing as abolition of Irink altogether. You don’t throttle a man because one tooth is aching. The Church loes her duty in this matter in a sane way. Meantime, drunkenness is not the only ivil. Drink itself is not forbidden by the law of God. Divorce and birth-control ire forbidden. What is Protestantism doing to wipe out these evils? It scarcely illudes to them; or if it does, it does so in order to sanction them.
