Next time they tell you that just point out the fact that the original disciples chose those to succeed them, and those then chose those would would succeed them and so and so on through the ages... Those "successors" are now the Holy Order of the Catholic Church.

So technically... You can't get much closer to being the "chosen people". ;)



The one thing I never understood about religions such as LDS and Baptists is the utter ban on drinking alcohol.

The Bible does not say that it is wrong to drink. Hell, through out the Bible people are drinking and being merry.

It's the act of overindulging that the Bible says is wrong. And that pertains to everything from drinking to eating to sleeping to watching TV. It falls under gluttony.

But the Bible, never condemns drinking.

I've just always wondered why there are religions out there that have.
