On April 20, I posted an item here about a decision in New Zealand to ban wine during religious services at prisons. Corrections officials in New Zealand now have reversed that decision, reports the online Australian news service CathNews today. You can read about it here. Note that in New Zealand both priests and inmates again are being allowed to consume communion wine. In California, prisoners are prohibited from taking wine during communion.
