Should churches be able to restrict how close bars are to them?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 10, 2004
“As long as they stop by to bless the wine, it shouldn’t be a problem. Jesus drank wine, didn’t he?”
“No, I don’t think so. I like going to bars. The more bars the merrier.”
“I say yes. You’ve got to respect the house of God.”
“No. It’s just like a bar being right next to a police station. It’s just something that happens. If the church doesn’t like it, they can move or put up a fence.”
