TCAA Chairman Bob McIntosh again said that there are numerous Bible verses that speak against the consumption of alcohol, and read some of the verses in question from his Bible.
“God needs the ‘no’ vote,” McIntosh said.
TCAA Publicity Chairman Ronnie Sadler asked fellow members to disregard any signs or advertisements that don’t mention TCAA by name, as those ads or signs might be from outside interests.
He also challenged some of the comments made the previous week by Murray City Council Member Greg Anderson at a meeting of the Grow Trigg organization, which wants to end prohibition in the county.
Sadler said he had done research concerning how Murray has benefited by revenue generated by the sale of liquor by the drink.
Sadler also said that there are new signs up for sale, and added that at the rate they’re selling, he expects to “see them on eBay,” and added that there continue to be reports of the theft and vandalism of signs.
Bro. Mike Rust, who is on the group’s ways and means committee, spoke to fellow TCAA members, alleging that there are people whose names are on the petition to bring the alcohol issue to a vote who signed it not knowing it was related to the sale of alcohol.
Rust also said that the fact that he has to vote on the issue of the sale of alcohol is “offensive” to him.
Sadler also reiterated that the group will be holding a rally at the Trigg County Recreation Complex at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27, and that everyone is invited to participate.
Eddy Brown, pastor at Bloomfield Baptist Church, talked about his personal experiences with alcohol, and said that everyone needs to work to keep the county dry.
TCAA’s next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10, at East Cadiz Baptist Church.
