I guess you want change in PF like Obuma brought change to the U.S.? That change has done a lot of good!

If you want another NUT(s) like Randal on council then vote for Tony or Howard.

If you want to move PF forward and do what it right for PF then vote for David and Bill.

Otherwise, if Tony and Howard get voted in then Randal will run FBC PF as well as the city of PF.

Fact is fact.

What Does God Expect?

Is the drinking of wine and other alcohol sinful pleasure, or a healthful life-improving habit? We saw that Christ approved of drinking wine. His actions and words set the example by which Christians are to live.

What does God expect of you? He expects you to use alcohol wisely. Jesus has not changed. Hebrews 13:8 states that He is “the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” We are to “follow His steps”(I Pet. 2:21-24). This principle is clear. Drinking alcoholic beverages is not wrong or sinful! The misuse of alcoholic beverages is sinful! It is not the bottle that is the problem—it is the person holding the bottle!

As with food, money, or anything that has the potential for misuse, moderation is the Bible standard for all true Christians. Paul wrote,“Everyone that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things”(I Cor. 9:25) and “Let your moderation be known unto all men”(Phil. 4:5).

Hello,
We travel to the area often! We stay in Gatlinburg, eat lunch and dinner there also! If we want a mixed drink while on vacation then we are going to have that drink. We enjoy PF and spend a good bit of our days there. I have been driving there for over 20 years at the drop of a hat. I have only stayed in PF maybe 5 nights total! I hope your town will vote this into law! I would love to spend more time on the strip at night! Like ROD RUN! Stay in a place on the strip walk around looking and shopping at night, stopping to have a drink then going on to our room, chalet, suite! Point being, PF would benefit by passing this into law!

You're a stark raving idiot who knows nothing about the scriptures you quote. 75 times the bible warns us of consuming Alcohol. Proverbs 20:1 says plainly, "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is decieved thereby is not wise." I'm not the one calling you an idiot, the bible is. You've been decieved to believe that the "Wine" spoken of by Jesus was Fermented. When properly studied and interpreted, wine was NOT always fermented in text. So be careful when you try to hide behind the word of God, make sure you have something to hide behind. GOD WILL BLESS THIS COMMUNITY FAR MORE THAN TAX REVENUE WILL IF WE VOTE NO!!! Yall liberalized, compromised, ignorant and unlearned drinkers need to have some fear of God about you. Ya'll may diagree with me, but God will still be God when this world's on fire!!! And his word will always stand true, even when its mis-interpreted and twisted to apease your seared conscience.

Surely you jest!!Wine without fermentation would quickly sour without preservatives. When you partake in the Lord's Supper,if you are using grape flavored juice from Walmart, you're not following proper procedure. When you speak of mis-interpretation of the Bible and seared consciences,be sure you're standing in front of a mirror when you point that self righteous finger!

Who is the new preacher Jess hired?
Jess is a scumbag. People dont realize that a alcoholic drink with 1 oz of alcohol has the same liquor content as 12 oz of beer or 8 oz of wine.

Randal Robinson and Jess Davis are funding the anti-liquor ads running in the paper and First Baptist Church PF is being used to support this political effort. They are also supporting and funding the campaign of Tony Rast and First Baptist Church PF is being used at their backdrop! I sure hope the voters of PF are aware of this effort and underhanded operation. As for the FBC – it is amazing that the church members are allowing God’s house to be used as a political meeting hall and backdrop. Jess Davis does not want the competition for the Wood Grill Buffet and he is using the churches and pastors to help line his pockets.
Jess Davis operated restaurants/bars for years and couldn't compete with other restaurants. You hit he nail on the head, Jess doesn't want the competition and if it's approved, I bet he is the first one with a license. He made his money by taking advantage of others who didn't understand real estate contracts very well.
