Something is brewing among American Protestants, and it has a decidedly hoppy flavor.
For much of the last century in the United States, Protestant Christianity’s relationship with beer was cold or even hostile at times. Protestant organizations such as the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and the Anti-Saloon League led the campaign to make alcohol illegal.
Even after Prohibition ended, many evangelicals defined themselves by their abstention from alcohol, called “the beloved enemy” by televangelist Jack Van Impe.

Happy This Year! If, like me, you’ve already broken a few of your resolutions, you might be done with new diets in 2014.
Tied at the bottom of the list are the Dukan Diet (the super-strict high-protein diet that claims you’ll lose 10 pounds in the first week) and the Paleo Diet (followers eat like cavemen: lots of meat, fish and vegetables; not a lot of refined sugar, beans, grains).
Mmm – sacralicious?
A Chicago restaurant is pushing the boundaries of poor taste with its October Burger of the Month.
"The Ghost" burger, named after a heavy-metal band that performs dressed like the pope and monks, features a "Communion wafer garnish." The unleavened disc bears the imprint of a cross and a crown.
Kuma's Corner, a heavy-metal themed restaurant with an "Eat beef; bang your head" ethos, says its burger is an homage to GHOST, Swedish headbangers who are touring the United States this month in support of their new album.
GHOST's new album comes complete with grape juice and a mock Communion wafer. Not coincidentally, the Communion burger at Kuma's comes with a red wine reduction.
