I really love Sam Adams beer. It's amazingly good. Jim Koch was one of the pioneers in the micro-brewery movement. He makes great beers.
But -- Jim Koch doesn't love Catholics who keep their Faith.
Earlier this year, Sam Adams announced it wouldn't have anything to do with the St. Patrick Parade in New York City, so long as this Catholic event continued to uphold Catholic teaching (regarding chastity).
The Saint Patrick Parade group said anyone could march -- anyone! -- but the march was Catholic -- so nothing opposing Catholic teaching was allowed.
That meant no banners advocating sodomy. Oops!
They put the arm on Jim Koch -- who caved. How dare a Catholic event be...Catholic? Saith Jim Koch.
So I swore off Sam Adams.
Jim Koch of Sam Adams hates Catholics (who are Catholic). So why should you give him your money?
