For simplify sake, let me say that Mogan-David wine is about 44 proof.

A man wants to leave wine sales in liquor stores but also make it available on the shelves of grocery stores in Tennessee state-wide.

Would you suppose that that person is a Christian with a personal relationship with Christ or NOT. Even if you're an atheist, please respond. That shouldn't disqualify you from the poll in any way. I suppose you would ask yourself it's it's moral or an endangerment to society.

Beat in mind that this person is a politician and accepted finding from The Tennessee Wine & Spirits manufacturers and Distributors.

Please select YES, or NO

Thanks so much for your participation.

I vote yes for wine in grocery stores. It will be much more convenient for me. My one stop shopping will be at Food City now and I will not have to go to the One Stop.

I would think that his personal relationship with God is between him and God and not for us to judge. As for wine in grocery stores; you do not have to buy it. What difference does it make where you purchase it?

We need more inclusivity here. Why not combine beer, wine, liquor, tobacco, tattoos, fireworks, tanning beds, strippers, meth making supplies, porn, lottery tickets, pill mills, etc. all into one "Redneck SuperStore"?

You are too far off the mark there Chosen One. I was visiting relatives in the Lexington Ky area last month and the liquor stores in Kentucky are a whole other world compared to the ones in Tennessee and Virginia. In addition to liquor and wine they sell regular beer, craft beer, tobacco products, lottery tickets, porn mags, gourmet foods, drinking accessories and they have a deli where you order a dinner and sit down and eat it.. Hell you can even pick up a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread while you're there.

Yes to wine in grocery stores, I have lived in NC and SC and when I moved here I found it odd you couldn't buy wine in a grocery store. Now, personally, I buy wine maybe twice a year since I rarely drink. Therefore I felt very strange going into a liquor store just to get wine!!!! And as for the stuff about being Christian, didn't Jesus turn water into wine?? Shoot I recall going to church a long time ago and having REAL WINE served along with Communion. This was a Catholic church.

Just for clarity, MD wine is about 26 proof (13%) alcohol content) but that isn't all that important. I'm all for wine in grocery stores and it doesn't go contrary to my Christian beliefs. It is just business. Maybe it will drive the cost of wine down a little. Remember when stores were not open on Sundays (blue laws)? Christians shop on Sundays now without qualms. As for "the man", he's a politician and that says very little for his moral character! Thanks for such an interesting and thoughtful post.

I'm for wine in grocery stores and it should have passed last year! Thanks for nothing Matthew Hill! The liquor/package store lobby and churches form an interesting alliance in trying to block wine in grocery stores!

. Funny!!! I'm for wine in grocery stores myself, but there's not question it will have a negative affect on liquor stores which are small businesses owned by local people. Many if not all grocery stores are owned by large corporations and that is my only concern, but I do not like restrictive laws as I am socially liberal in my beliefs.
