[Book of Mormon] Mosiah 11:15
And it came to pass that he planted vineyards round about the land; and he built wine presses and made wine in abundance; and therefore he became a wine-bibber and also his people. (Mosiah 11:15)
Well now, there is no evidence of vineyards in America, north or south, predating Columbus. Though, the Vikings did find fox grapes in New Foundland. But Vineyards are quite a different thing than wild grapes choking out shrubs in a forest.
There is something a bit more disturbing about this. And that is the idea that just having a vineyard leads one to become a drunkard. The Biblical picture of heaven often has vineyards. The land of milk and honey was one that was noted for its vineyards. Drunkenness is condemned in the Bible. But wine is also held out as something that should be enjoyed as a gift of God, just not abused.
What’s more is Brigham young himself would have to be considered a wine-bibber by the logic above as he also commanded that Vineyards be started in Utah. That is until he had a “revelation” that coincided with the incompetence of his followers to grow grapes.
