St. Patrick would be ashamed...

The real St. Patrick was a Christian convert who made it his life's work to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to Ireland. A man devoted to God. I am certain that he would be ashamed that the U.S. has construed the day of celebration in his name into a sick day of "celebrating" "Irish culture" by getting drunk off our asses. Its okay to have a green beer on St. Patty's day, but I seriously heard a radio DJ commanding all of his listeners to have a 13-hour hangover on Sunday. That is sad. Drunkenness leads to all kinds of terrible things like fighting, rape, car accidents that lead to deaths, and generally being an idiot. Then, people think they are somehow entitled to take NO responsibility for their actions and that is somehow the fault of the alcohol. Not to be cheesy, but alcohol doesn't rape people. People rape people.
Do people seriously believe that St. Patrick's day is celebrated in Ireland the way it is celebrated here? St. Patrick's day has always been a religious day in Ireland and only became a national festival in 1995.
