Why do fundies hate alcohol?

A simple question: Why do fundamentalist Christians, whose Savior turned water into wine to make a wedding more fun, hate and try to regulate the crap out of alcohol? It seems like lots of neocons, including Bush and Tom DeLay, are "saved" former alcoholics, but examples abound in more places than DC. I know somebody who, in order to get a job as a camp counselour at some uber-Christian summer camp, had to sign a contract saying that she hadn't and wouldn't consume alcohol, have inappropriate relations with people, yada yada blah blah. And the hideous (what the heck's the deal with the camels?) Prohibiton Party's website seems to have links to a revisionist version of the Bible which eschews alcohol.
