The updated tally for the application of Red Deacon for the throne of Archbishop of Port is such:

+GIC: yes
+GEORGE: yes
+SERB1389 - uncast
+CHRIS: yes
+SS99 - uncast

A new matter is brought up to be discussed: the decision as to who will be given voting seats in the Synod of Spirits.  The Current list of voting members is above, and voting seats below, along with a list of the other thrones that are non-voting at the moment.

Voting Seats:
Bishop of Bourbon, President
Metropolitan of Metaxa, Chief Secretariat
Archbishop of Ouzo
Metropolitan of Mead
Archbishop of Schlivo
Archbishop of Rum (vacant see)
Archbishop of Gin (vacant see)

Non-Voting Seats
Archbishop of Absinthe
Archbishop of Tequila
Archbishop of Scotch
Archbishop of Port
Archbishop of Cordials
Archbishop of Stoli
Bishop of Stouts
Bishop of Oktoberfest

Now, as it would be impossible to grant all the above seats voting priviledge in the Synod, I propose two solutions:

1. Only the fully Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous sees will be represented; thus, the current voting members, plus the Archbishops of Absinthe and Tequila.

2. Whether or not 1 passes, appoint at least a locum tenens for the see of Gin, and possibly a different locum tenens for the see of Rum that is not a current voting member.

If the president of the Synod will accept them, I submit the above two proposals to the current voting members for discussion.

+SS99 votes yes and apologizes for the delay, as you can see it was only the Serbs who had not yet voted, that is because we both work off Serbian time (which is about 12 hours behind the rest of the known universe).

Your Intoxicatedness:
You need not apologize for delay in response; your answers came in a timely fashion, and as a brotherhood of Bishops we all understand the time constraints put on each and all.

To All:
So the tally for Red Deacon is now updated to 4 yes', with only +SERB1389 needing to vote.

As per the second set of voting, on the two proposals, it is:
+GEORGE and +SS99: yes
All others, uncast.

I hope all have a wonderful day

The Red Deacon is a YES

The two proposals are YES and YES 

Isn't Rum a clear alcohol?  In which case I would find some way to accept this charge, knowing fully well the clear duty that will be put upon my ever to be humble person.

Having gone over the Synodal declarations of the past, and having been made aware of the cannonical adjustments concerning our long beloved drink of Vodka, I hereby relinquish my jurisdictional questioning and concede to the Locum Tenens +SS99 on eparchial rights. 

May you enjoy the purest and most intoxicating Vodka that the Great Distiller graces you with!!

In accordance with the ancient typikon of the Grand Taverna of the Great Distiller, and the practice of the Holy Synod of Spirits, in conjunction with the canons that guide the consumption of Alchohols everywhere, it is our duty as Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits to announce the ordinations of the servants of the Great Distiller listed below to the episcopacy, to the vacant sees listded, through the ancient custom of the laying on of drinking glasses (in hand) by the servants, the His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Metaxa, and His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Mead.

It is in the joy of the Great Distiller that we welcome the new Archbishop of Port and raise a glass of his episcopal drink, hoping that the Great Distiller shows mercy on his liver, and on the livers of us all.

1. Only the fully Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous sees will be represented; thus, the current voting members, plus the Archbishops of Absinthe and Tequila.

2. Whether or not 1 passes, appoint at least a locum tenens for the see of Gin, and possibly a different locum tenens for the see of Rum that is not a current voting member.

The current status of the above proposals is such:
+GEORGE, +SERB1389, +SS99: yes
+GIC, +CHRIS: undecided.
Remember, the above proposals cannot pass without the President of the Synod at least assenting to their consideration.

Our Inebraitedness votes in the affirmative for all persons and measures currently before they synod; however, Our Inebriatedness would like to add that though only the fully Autonomous and semi-Autonomous sees have a right to a vote on the Synod, that by unanimous consent other hierarchs of lesser seas can be given such a posistion, and once granted cannot be revoked save for another unanimous vote (minus the person in question, of course).

I am pleased to announce, by universal assent of the voting members of the Holy Synod of Spirits, that the voting rights of membership in the Synod have been extended to +PEDRO and +FRjBJ.  From this time forward, they will be included in all deliberations of the Holy Synod, and their input and assent will be accepted for all Synodal Decisions.

In addition, the Synod will now commence deliberations to elect a locum tenens for the vacant see of Gin, as well as consider whether or not to elect a currently non-voting bishop to be the locum tenens of the see of Rum.

In the Joy of the Great Distiller, We remain faithfully yours,

Point of clarification, under whom would these Locum Tenens be?  Is this up for deliberation?

Well, the Patriarchates of Rum and Gin are fully Autonomous; as two of the ancient 5 Patriarchates, they have full rights and priviledges equal to those of your own; but the locum tenens, while being able to administer their diocese and such as if they were the Archbishops in question, would not be the permanent choice for the see (at least not now), but rather hold the seat (locum tenens literally means "place holder") until a worthy candidate is elected to the see.

Now that is leadership.¦nbsp; ZIVELI!!

To His Intoxicatedness, +SOUTHSERB99, Archbishop of Shlivo, Patriarch of All Vodkas,

Be it known, my brother within our beloved Metropolia of Metaxa, that your warm fraternal gesture was received with gratitude and great rejoicing, ending in, Your Eminence can be assured, much exaltation of the Holy Agave heart to the intoxication of all according to our most inebriated faith and, as a side result, mass quantities of salt and lime as well.

Given the blessed and shmammered spirit in which your exclamation was received, it is the hope of our Archdiocese that neither feelings nor relationships between our beloved archdioceses will be damaged through a reminder that that which was referred to as "leadership" by Your Eminence was, in reality, merely the Southern Hospitality with which our region of this great land--known 'round here as Dixie--has been blessed by the Great Distiller to enjoy and spread to the masses, mostly accompanied, as is our distinguished custom, with the traditional Tres Generaciones Añejo and sangrita chaser.

Seeking continued goodwill and co-imbibing I remain,

Yours in the Great Distiller,

His Intoxicatedness, +PEDRO, Archbishop of Tequila and All Agave-Based Beverages

Imposter.
Vagante Bishop.

These are serious charges!  What do you have to offer up as a reason for questioning the Bishop of Stouts' claims?

Let us be charitable in our inquiry, brother.  We will allow the accuser a fair opportunity to speak and present his charges, and if charges are presented we will allow him the chance to prove them.  Methinks they won't pan out, but let's see.

Like a batch of a fine vintage, like the Grand Fine, I will allow each barrel to sit for 15 years to age and gain character; if by that point the barrel has a quality batch, the batch will be kept and bottled for the Plentitude to consume.  If that batch is poor, though, then it and the barrel will be cast into the hottest of fires.

Such will be the fate of the charges against our brother bishop; if they have quality, then they will stand; if not, then they will be cast out like the chaff to be burned.

Oh, that is a serious charge indeed.  We will need to allow some debate amongst the Synod of Spirits to see what the other members think...

If you wanted to explain more your theory on subliminal drinking.... I would be interested in hearing it, and maybe reading some of the contemporary research on the subject.

As to the 3 post-count threads, what's the big deal.  So the person has only been on the site for a few days.  That doesn't mean they can't drink, or verify their drinking abilities. 

Subliminal drinking!  Hm...I wonder if any of the alcohol-ogists (psychologists of alcohol) would be able to explain this...

I wonder if the topic of subliminal drinking is like subliminal messaging.  You see a bunch of horses run accross the TV screen but you think "beer".  Or in our case, you see a sports game and you're automatically drinking...or something to that effect. 

I wonder how that would play out...

Well, I think Meekle was looking for the Alchohologists here to expound on the idea of subliminal drinking, and once we've decided on what it is, then to decide whether or not it's okay.

Subliminal drinking... Would it go something like this: man is sitting with beer in hand during game; he sees onscreen commercial that reminds him of being thirsty, and he realizes that his drink is in his belly...  of course, this would be more along the lines of "subliminal message to drink."

Subliminal drinking may be that someone else has the beer, and somehow gets the guy to drink it without noticing that he is... Along these lines, would it need to be embedded (as subliminal messages are) in an innocuous beverage?  Like a hidden layer in the bottom of a Coke cup, and at the top there is a thin layer of soda to mask the secret compartment?

Cleveland,

Subliminal drinking sounds warped and twisted to me, such as being influenced by the Evil One.

And, I can't help but notice that reply #666 in this thread was by you...discussing subliminal drinking, which trad folks like me suspect stems from the Evil One....

Hey there, o brother of the Holy Synod - I am not advocating subliminal drinking, nor praising it; if you paid attention to my previous post (emphasis added):

Well, I think Meekle was looking for the Alchohologists here to expound on the idea of subliminal drinking, and once we've decided on what it is, then to decide whether or not it's okay.

All I am doing is attempting to follow the first step of the process.  After coming up with a definition of what "subliminal drinking" is, then we should as a synod decide on its acceptability or un-acceptability.

I hope that we shall - but I think some members of the synod have lost their fire, and others seem to be more content lobbing veiled attacks at other members rather than commenting on the subject matter...

Ahem, o most sensitive one...here is my post:

Cleveland,

And, I can't help but notice that reply #666 in this thread was by you...discussing subliminal drinking, which trad folks like me suspect stems from the Evil One....

I indicated you were discussing the topic, not advocating it. I did in fact pay attention to your previous post, and think the tone you adopted in your response shows a divisiveness that could perhaps have been fostered by the supernatural agent who may have (falsely) created something as twisted as 'subliminal drinking'.

Only something that fosters lies could come up with an activity that is like drinking, but is not actually drinking, very much like the repugnant beverage known as 'near beer'.

I suggest the synod meet to directly address this issue, as well as reaffirm our common position on alcohol-free or 'near' beer. This especially affects me, as it is a devastating falsehood against my thronal beverage.

This actually gets to the crux of the question: is "subliminal drinking" actually drinking, or does it make one think that they're drinking, but really they aren't?  If it is the latter, then it obviously is evil and deserves anathema.  If it is the former, it calls into question whether or not we value the actual conscious act of imbibing, or whether the effect of imbibing is primary.  I am inclined to say the former.

We also need to dispense with all ideas of "near beer" - O'Douls and the like.  They are an affront to +CHRIS' thronal beverage, and to all true brewers.
