Buckfast for breakfast

A (legal) drug scare in Scotland around a mix of wine and caffeine produced by Benedictine monks and called Buckfast.

Best bit:
Nor, he said, is wine-making a sign that the monks of Buckfast Abbey have strayed from the teachings of St. Benedict, an accusation recently leveled by an Episcopal bishop.

“It’s always wise to remember that Jesus turned water into wine,” the spokesman, Jim Wilson, said in an interview.

Amen to that!

Good to see, too, that religious competition is alive and well in Scotland between the Episcopalians and the Catholics!
