Mark Thornton wrote: National prohibition of alcohol (1920-33)‚ÄĒthe ‚Äúnoble experiment‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒwas undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. The results of that experiment clearly indicate that it was a miserable failure on all counts. The evidence affirms sound economic theory, which predicts that prohibition of mutually beneficial exchanges is doomed to failure.
The lessons of Prohibition remain important today. They apply not only to the debate over the war on drugs but also to the mounting efforts to drastically reduce access to alcohol and tobacco and to such issues as censorship and bans on insider trading, abortion, and gambling....

1 Corinthians 5:11-13 But as it is, I wrote to you not to associate with anyone who is called a brother who is a sexual sinner, or covetous, or an idolater, or a slanderer, or a drunkard, or an extortionist. Don‚Äôt even eat with such a person. For what do I have to do with also judging those who are outside? Don‚Äôt you judge those who are within? But those who are outside, God judges. ‚ÄúPut away the wicked man from among yourselves.‚ÄĚ

Dr. Rugh wrote: As Christians, we have a dual citizenship. We are members of an earthly nation, but we also have a citizenship that is in heaven. The outworking of this double citizenship, however, has often led to confusion....how we Christians should view the institution of earthly government: Is human government founded by God? Does God ordain all authority, even bad authority? Do Christians have an obligation to human governments? Should we try to Christianize our nation by political means? To what degree should we submit to government?
One view says that since we are citizens of heaven, we have no responsibilities or relationship to earthly government at all. Those who strictly believe this would not vote, serve in the military, salute the flag, or show any allegiance or concern for the nation in which they live. On the other hand, a second view closely ties Christianity with political and social activity.
Which view is correct?...Although great confusion and variety of opinions exist on this subject, the Bible does give us answers and guidelines for understanding government and how we as Christians should view and respond to it....
Shmuley Boteach wrote: ...we should not rejoice in Baghdadi‚Äôs death. There should be no spontaneous celebrations outside the White House as there were when president Barack Obama announced the death of arch-butcher Osama bin Laden. It would have been better if Baghdadi had never been born. It is not a cause for celebration when evil is defeated. Rather, we bow our heads in silent resignation amid the ferocious determination to eradicate evil wherever it is found.
To be sure, we should thank Trump, the heroic American military and the American people for having neutralized a monster. But we should heed the words of the Bible: ‚ÄúDo not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles‚ÄĚ (Proverbs 24:17). This is not a time for celebration or parades but, rather, a time for thanks and humble gratitude to God Almighty that evil was rooted out and that innocents have been protected through the elimination of a vile, bloodthirsty killer who took such pleasure at brutalizing the defenseless.... ....

"The high price of bootleg liquor meant that the nation‚Äôs working class and poor were far more restricted during Prohibition than middle or upper class Americans. Even as costs for law enforcement, jails and prisons spiraled upward, support for Prohibition was waning by the end of the 1920s. In addition, fundamentalist and nativist forces had gained more control over the temperance movement, alienating its more moderate members."
