In Alexandria NSW on “Serbian Orthodox Church...” at Church Hall Renwick St, Alexandria 2015:

Jamieson Cramer commented

This is ludicrous - why does a 'place of worship' need a liquor licence at all ? Serving alcohol EVERY Sunday for 3 hours is more a social and celebratary occasion, not a religious occasion and how could you call this 'limited' - the schedule is for 47 regular functions.

One doesn't go to the pub to worship God, so why go to church to drink alcohol ?

The licence application should be disallowed on simple moral grounds. Alcohol and religion don't mix and it will only bring more undesirable anti-social religious alcoholics to the neighborhood.
