“Liquor sales are not good for the people,” Henderson said. “It leads to higher crime, violence, DUIs, and alcohol related deaths.”
Amen, Brother Henderson. Liquor bottles keep running around robbing banks and wrecking cars. Obviously, individuals bear no responsibility for their own actions.
‘It’s about safety’ - Hartselle Enquirer headline.
No, it isn’t. It’s about a bunch of people who don’t respect the freedoms upon which our ountry is based and the individual will God gave to man.
Let’s keep Hartselle family friendly - Hartselle Enquirer headline.
How is a city “family friendly” if we teach our children that it is moral to impose our religious will on others? This is the worst thing we could do the the children we profess to love.
“When I was mayor, I worked hard to get people to shop in Hartselle, motivate them to spend their money here,” said former Hartselle mayor Wiley.
It might be a bit easier to get women down here shopping on Saturday afternoons if their hubbies could duck into a sports bar, watch the game and grab a cold one. And then he could help load wifey’s new antiques in the back of the pickup for the ride home.
“I find it hard to believe that our strong Christian heritage, high moral values and clean family lifestyle will not be adversely affected by giving alcoholic beverages a stamp of public approval and making them available at every street corner,” said former mayor Knight.
I agree. We don’t want to be like other cities which have alcohol sales on every street corner in the subdivisions and residential neighborhoods. Of course, all those corners on Morrow, Short, Hickory, McClanahan and Milner streets will be filled with booze peddlers, too. The evil booze dealers will be taking bottles of fine scotch into the schools to addict our children, too.
“Attorney Jeff Johnson is chairman of Families for a Safe Hartselle. He sent a written statement that did not respond to Posey and Madison’s charge that information in the pamphlet is misleading.” – Decatur Daily on misrepresentations in anti-alcohol flyer.
The leaders of the Vote No movement are amongst the most closed-minded people in the state. They probably don’t even realize when they are shading the truth because, based on their arguments, they have the capability to believe about anything. Perhaps we should spend some time educating these pastors about the flatness of the planet Earth.
“That’s good for a town with family values and a Christian heritage, says the Rev. James Henderson, a retired Army colonel who is the new chairman of Conservative Christians of Alabama, former gubernatorial campaign manager of Judge Roy Moore and, now, chairman of the political action committee Priceville Committee for Positive Family Values.” – Huntsville Times.
That he was Roy Moore’s campaign manager says it all, doesn’t it?
“For Hartselle to make any money from alcohol sales, with each drink taxed at five cents, everybody in town would be so drunk they couldn’t work or worry about economic development in the first place..Its best to just work with the chamber and ADO in Montgomery to bring in legitimate economic development…If Hartselle goes wet, with so many drunks on the road, when I drive to Birmingham, I’m going to have to figure out a route around Hartselle, all the way through Double Springs to get there.” – from the Hartselle Enquirer Sounding Off section.
