Local pastor Horacio Lopez asserted, “Our descendants say before the evangelicals arrived the town was in a miserable state.” The town has generally prohibited the selling of alcohol for religious reasons, and has found itself in a much more sobering and content mood.
My two cents
I’m fascinated by Prohibition and I’m (maybe pleasantly) surprised that it’s still alive in the 21st century. I wonder then how they do communion; perhaps they made an exception for it given that alcohol was “generally prohibited”.
