Underage Drinking

We have friends who find nothing wrong with allowing their 16 year olds to drink. They allow them to have beer pong parties with their friends (because they are doing it in their home) and allow them to try different types of wines (In their words "to make them a connoisseur of wine").

We find this unacceptable as if they are doing it at home, you know they are doing it elsewhere and these kids are able to drive now so I can not believe that none of them ever drive home drunk.

What does everyone think of this?

Gee, Garnet, how in the world would YOU know anything about the bible or religion?  Not like you're a student of it or anything ... Wink

Wait. Are you not the one who posted pictures of people and their kids on this very page? Didn't you post pictures of what you thought was the home of someone who used to post here? Did you not make up a false identity on facebook and send friend request to a bunch of posters from here, their friends and their family? Did you not pick a fight, early on in this thread? Didn't YOU ask, repeatedly, about the theft comments (which by the way were benign, in the beginning)? Aren't you the one, blasting people and their reliegion, b/c you disagree with them? And you still want us to believe that you are the victim?

I am guessing it is the same sort of people who argue the definition of the eucharist online w/o realizing that not every denomination believes in transfiguration...they read the children's bible version and never really dig any deeper. Or they want to show how "holy" they are by picking a biblical theme w/o realizing how dark that theme really is. B/c they never really thought about the implications of a flood wiping out all of humanity, save for one family. It's really no less gruesome than modeling your nursery decor after the Bates motel or the Shining.

Consider the source. I can. It is par for the course.

Yes Jam because everyone else is only sinners. Sinners who insist year after year to have to see what complete strangers and their families they only know online are doing in their lives. They might find some little morsel and have to explode on it (even though they know nothing about the situation or outcome at all). This is not debating security in schools all over but concentrating on one person and their family and how they will try and tarnish them over something they have absolutely no clue about and assume everything they read online is real. Check out the state farm commercial with the woman who believes everything she reads online and meets the guy who is "french" lol. Have a wonderful day Jam. I know I am and will continue as I have more things going on in my life than to sit around and try to find flaws in everyone else's. Maybe some people need to look in the mirror first as they need to improve things in their own lives before they claim to go and help others.

Yes, a trip to the mirror would be a good idea for yourself and might I suggest you read your own posts next?  Then, once you stop doing all of the above, let's get back to the debate of underage drinking, kay?

ACK. I guess my kids are soon to be screwed as well. 5-6 weeks in Frankfurt with expected side trips to other part of Europe will really ruin them!

 

I officially ruined my children this past summer; Europe and drinking under the age of 21.  Did you notice, full circle back to the op?

Whoa...pictures? That's really crossing a line.

Shaking my head at the things grown women get their panties in a wad about.

I was trying to give the benefit of the doubt but you are correct, I shouldn't be surprised.
