But drinking alcohol is wrong. It causes accidents to innocent people. It kills innocent people. It breaks up families.
It causes certain people of certain churches to not fully participate in their religious tenants. It causes people to do things they would otherwise not do. That is why we restrict it to those who are over 21 years of age. Any questions?

So how does the simple viewing of a bottle of alcohol prevent any of the things you mentioned?

Is it the government's responsibility to insure you follow your religious tenants?

I have seen bottles of alcohol. I even saw a pack of cigarettes once. I didn't turn into a social deviant.

So how does forcing business's to spend money to put up a wall to mix drinks solve any of those problems? It's not like they make the filthy drunks sit in a separate, fully enclosed booth. The logic behind the "zion curtain" makes no sense. If a legislator could actually show that they were helpful in any way I would LOVE to see that study.
