Islam and some denominations of Christianity: drinking alcohol is strictly forbidden.
Christianity: drink during services and in moderation, but be very careful with alcohol, for it can become a pathway to sin.
Judaism, breaking down the door: get so fucking drunk that you don’t remember what 2+2 is. Down some liquid courage and party like a motherfucker, it is required. God orders you to get absolutely piss drunk. getting so fucked up you can’t remember your own goddamn name is a mitzvah. It is like… a wonderful show of faith. Or something…. Idk man let’s go get smashed—
