James Kowalski Rhetoric 10.02 Ozge Girit 4/29/2007 Outline Topic: Alcohol consumption should be banned (affirming-rebuttal) Introduction: My opponents have brought up some interesting points, but I would like to give you all some other alternatives. I will address two points that the opposing group brought up: A) that some religions permit and even call for the use of alcohol for certain practices, and B) A) Religions Argument - The bible and other religious texts do indeed allow for consumption of alcohol, but in moderate proportions. My argument is that while drinking in very moderate proportions is fine, a lot of people cannot. -Grape juice could easily be substitute for wine: I do not think Jesus or God or whomever would be offended. -Separation of church and state- -From a legal standpoint the argument from religion should be irrelevant. Religion should never theoretically impede the legal process. Granted that it certainly does, but that does not mean that it should. This proposed ban is for the best interest for the health of Americans. It is not morally wrong for anyone to stay completely away from alcohol consumption. -The drinking of wine for religious ceremonies cannot be an exception to the proposed ban. B) Alcohol as a big business
