    Drunk in church, not booze, is disrespectful

    To the editor:

    I choose not to drink alcohol. I have not had a drop in almost 15 years.

    The decision to not drink alcohol is a personal decision, just like the decision to consume alcohol is also a personal decision.

    I am not anti-alcohol. I keep alcohol in my home so if guests decide to drink a beer they can; it’s their choice.
