Southern Baptist Convention

WHEREAS, The manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, in the opinion of this Convention, are opposed to the best interests of society and government, and the progress of our holy religion, and believing that all honorable means should be employed for their suppression, therefore be it

RESOLVED, That we, as members of the Southern Baptist Convention, do most solemnly protest against its manufacture and sale, and pledge our influence in the exercise of our rights as citizens of this free country, socially, morally, religiously and in all other proper ways, to work for its speedy overthrow, and to this end we invoke the aid and blessing of Almighty God.
