Against liquor sales in Olive Hill

Feb. 26, 2014 —

The editor:

Along the roadways of our little town, we see signs urging us to vote YES for legal liquor sales in Olive Hill. Sadly, we see no signs urging us to vote NO!

Arguments for us to vote YES, are that the liquor sales would improve the economy. But, whose economy are we talking about? Would this be the economy of a child’s home when they see their parents walk in the local liquor store and spend their grocery money? Maybe the same child that wears the hand-me-downs because there is no money for a new pair of shoes!

According to God’s Word, from Proverbs, Chapter 20, Verse 1. “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. We could use Proverbs 23, Verses 29 & 30. “Who hath woe, who hath sorrow, who hath contentions, who hath babbling, who hath wounds without cause, who hath redness of eyes? “They that tarry long at the wine, they that go to seek mixed wine,” also Verse 32 goes on to say “At the last it biteth like a serpent and stingeth like an adder.”

So, for those that would like to order some woe, sorrow, contentions, babbling, wounds or some of Satan’s other gifts, you may go ahead and vote YES. But, there are still some of God’s people who plan to vote NO. We would much rather receive God’s gifts which are love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, and so many more that they can never be numbered.

We sign this as some of the citizens interested in keeping our town free of liquor sales!
