old time religion WCTU Women's Christian Temperance Union
Most active around 1900, the group still exists! I am not sure if they still occupy taverns and drop down to their knees until the beer stops flowing. "Agitate, Educate, Legislate" was their unofficial motto. I wonder if some bloated "doctor-shopping" Oxycontin addict like Rush Limbaugh would accuse them of being "actors" and "hired by George Soros" like they would have today. The women were right, of course. Alcohol does kill and break up marriages, but to each his own.
