"On the other hand, the highest levels of opposition were exhibited by Tennesseans who strongly identified with conservative evangelical Christian beliefs." - If those individuals wish to not purchase wine in groceries, that is their prerogative; they should not, however, have their religiously based viewpoint be a reasoning for preventing others from doing so.
This issue is well beyond the point of ridiculousness, at this point. Put this to a vote by the people on the ballot, and we'll be done with it once and for all, as (I feel) the resolution will pass by a landslide.

this is not a good thing. it seems like a good idea because, hey we can get everything in one stop. but, let us think what will happen if you can buy wine in the grocery store. about half of the standing liquor stores will close because business will decline. these are hardworking local business men, and we want to give all of our money to a company that probably isnt headquartered in out state. I say we let the local people keep our money.
