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?

For the purposes of this debate, the only relevant point is that whole Catholic doctrine teaches that the substance of the wine changes when it is blessed by the priest, the accidents don't. The wine that the kids get is still very much alcoholic.

Why did you ask if you aren't interested? Again, makes no sense.

There is only one reason it would not be "real wine," and that would be if your particular priest received a Vatican dispensation to use mustum instead.

Oh, do be careful. You might hurt Jam's feelings. She is the one who raised the issue.

Seems like it. Always goes off track when it hits a wall and cant find a way around it but to bring up things that have nothing to do with the debate.

I was here debating underage alcohol consumption when all of a sudden we were talking about school shootings and transubstantiation. It's OK if you're done.
