    It might be a religion I would support, but I still won't go to the services because of COVID.

    Tax the churches. We could even call it a sin tax because sinners are to be found inside church.

    With enough tequila, you'll stop caring about COVID and join the church. ;)

    I'm curious if churches will need liquor licenses now and minors cannot be served alcohol anymore.

    I read somewhere of a then-
    newly dry town in Alaska, Bethel,
    where bootlegging to the natives
    was very profitable.

    Someone opened a church. Give 80 dollars tithes, and you receive free a bottle of rotgut.

    It depends according to this:

    Most (but not all) states have exemptions written into their laws to allow the supervised consumption of alcohol by minors as part of a religious service. This means it's legal for kids to take a sip at Communion, but still illegal to have a glass of the same wine at a wedding reception in the church basement.

    Do US churches give wine to minors?
