So I was doing a research paper over the history of our county for a history class. Anyway, I was reading the section about my town, and it said that in 1933, when prohibition ended, the town had a funeral mass for the 18th amendment. Not a mock mass or a celebration but apparently a full funeral mass followed by a party. It makes sense since my town was founded by czech settlers who loved their beer.
Anyway, would this be legitimate. I mean it almost seems to me like worshipping a false god. I know alcohol is not all bad and I myself like a good beer, but it seems weird to me that people in my town in the 30’s would do this. Would it be an illegitimate mass?
