College Changes Alcohol Policy

Wheaton College, a highly-respected evangelical Christian college in Illinois, has changed its policy to permit drinking alcohol by graduate students, faculty and staff.

Wheaton decided that inasmuch as the Bible doens't prohibit the consumption of alcohol in moderation, it shouldn't prohibit it either.

The decision was well-received by students, faculty, staff and alumni, the famous alumnus of which is the evangelist Billy Graham.
