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.
