      One Sunday Morning, I was doing the "Children's Sermon". I sit on the steps near the pulpit, and all the children come up and sit on the floor for a short object lesson or something. At this particular Church, we were LIVE ON THE RADIO on Sunday Mornings.

      I was teaching about sin, and things in general that cause us sorrow. I had cut out advertisements from a magazine, and had a picture of a bottle of Jack Daniel's Whiskey. I greeted the children, then held up the page from the magazine with the Whiskey bottle on it.

      BEFORE I COULD SAY A WORD, one of the boys jumped up and yelled, "HEY, THAT'S THE KIND MY DAD DRINKS!"

      I glanced over at his father, his face turning red, as he tried to slip down under the pew in front of him.

      Cemetery never taught about children and "open Mics".

          Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

              Actually, it wasn't about "alcohol", it was about ABUSING things.

                Reminds me of the bar Smith had set up in the hotel he owned, while preaching against booze.

                  Well we should not abuse Mormons.
                  Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
