Welcome to Gabola Church, which celebrates the drinking of alcohol. The South African church was started eight months ago and has found an enthusiastic following.Others in South Africa are outraged by Gabola, saying it is not a church at all.About 80 percent of South Africa's 56 million people profess to be Christian.The condemnation by other Christian organizations did not bother the 30 worshippers attending a recent Gabola service, held in a bar in the sprawling Orange Farm township 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of Johannesburg.Three new Gabola members were baptized with beer which covered their foreheads and dripped down their faces.Gabola's leader said he encourages people to drink responsibly and emphasizes that alcohol will only be sold and blessed to people who are 20, two years older than South Africa's legal drinking age.
