I agree that a monk should be a role model.My point is however,for the people who say it is ok to drink in moderation,and I am not going to preach at anyone who does so,then why would a monks having a quiet beer on a hot day seem wrong.
Would he not be a role model,having one beer and not getting smashed?
By the way I am not trying to get anyones permission for a drink
For me the precept is to be kept.
It is up to the person to decide in the end.I found when I was drinking that mindfulness went out the window real fast.
When I stopped drinking I noticed a big change in my personal practice.
And crawling on the planets face,some insects called the human race.
Lost in time
Lost in space
