The real St. Patrick would disapprove of your drunkenness and debauchery. Even if it is a fair approximation of Irish culture.

The Irishman now out contempt is beneath
He sleeps in his boots and he lies through his teeth
He blows up policemen, or so I have heard
And blames it on Cromwell and William the Third!

Finally, apropos of St. Patrick’s Day, here, from the BBC, is a better intro to trinitarianism then you’re likely to get from your local evangelical church. (Though there are exceptions.) After a bit of a rocky intro that leans in a modalist direction, the panellists of In Our Time give a pretty good rundown of the doctrine, from Paul and John, through Augustine, down to Barth.
