WAUKESHA, Wis. — Angela Caddell started struggling with her Christianity 14 years ago when she came out as gay. But a gathering at a bar to talk faith over a cold beer once a month is helping her feel more connected to her religion.

“If you’re an atheist you are welcome. …. I’m a lesbian, I’m totally welcome,” said the 32-year-old from nearby Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, at a recent gathering.

“Tonight we’re talking about scapegoating. There is no scapegoating that happens here.”

This event is called “Jesus & Beer” and it’s part of an effort by some Christian groups throughout the country to recruit parishioners, connect with people struggling with faith or provide a relaxed outlet to talk religion.

  1. It’s actually quite likely Jesus drank, and shared, beer rather than wine. Wine was reserved for the upper class, Romans, and not someone like Jesus. If you’ve read Bart Ehrman there are many indications of the Bible being altered, scribes making mistakes and different writers offering their own spin, as we would put it these days. So, if true, they may be in good: even divine, historical company.
