Also, for extra entertainment value, keeping the sabbath holy is a demand of the old testament, which in Christian theology makes it a "fulfilled law" either not binding to anyone or binding only to the actual tribe of Israel, depending which Christian faction you're asking.  Jesus explicitly violates/overwrites the Jewish "don't do any work or partying" in several passages, and is called on it by Rabbis whom he tells to fark off at least once.

The reason we don't  work on Sunday (and Saturday) usually is  Labor Unions and has nothing to do with religion, before the 1920s they were standard workdays, which is why there are traditionally multiple church services/masses and one of them is early in the morning.  So people that try to justify sunday-related blue laws based on weekend labor traditions are  extra wrong.

//Just figured I'd throw that in there.

Why should a liquor store have to purchase an extra permit, just because Christians don't want to buy alcohol on Sunday morning?  If you need to pass laws to close down liquor stores to keep yourself from buying booze on Sunday, your religion is weak, your God is weak, and your will is weak.

None of these things are the liquor store's problem.

Blue laws always annoyed the hell out of me.  Especially in SC, where businesses have restricted Sunday hours, until Christmas season, when they get lifted.

Then let God deal with me as He choose, and go fark yourself. Same thing with hating on the gays, no hunting on Sundays, or whatever other bullshiat view you want to cram down other peoples throats because you think the Bible tells you so. If God has a problem with something somebody is doing he can judge them when they're dead, but until then you're -supposed- to be acting with love and tolerance for your fellow man. There was a whole thing written about it, called the New Testament.
If you're Jewish, making your book the Old Testament, then maybe you've got a religious right to be a dick about things, because Old Testament god was pretty hard core, but Christians who are supposed to follow the New Testament don't have a holier-than-thou leg to stand on when it comes to judging or punishing others.
Don't know about the Muslims, never so much as looked at their book.
Think Buddhists are supposed to be cool about things too. Stay away from the Norse though. They have to die in battle to make it to their heaven.
I think that if you were to put a gun to my head and make me pick a deity to worship, I'd go with Bacchus/Dionysus. Then I'd pass a law making it mandatory to drink hard liquor on Sunday morning.

Rufus Lee King: I don't wanna jump on the bandwagon against Christians, but Jeez, dudes, make up your minds about this.

Technically, the bible forbids drunkenness, not drinking in general.  As you can tell by Jesus dying on the cross and not of dysentery.  Temperance is an extremist movement, essentially following the same logic as sects that forbid dancing in order to prevent premarital sex, or demand that food be killed by bleeding to satisfy the prohibition on raw blood/flesh.

Basically one of the world's oldest slippery slope arguments, which even most christian denominations/sects kinda roll their eyes at.  They've got influence in the US because of the good old squeaky wheel effect, the kind of people that subscribe to slippery slope logic tend to be the stupidest and thus the most loudly certain in their convictions.  It's not actually a result of anything inherent in the religion.  For, y'know, once.

//Always weirded out by people that insist that anti-homosexuality stuff isn't in the religion when it's explicitly mentioned in the new testament several times, but have no problem with temperance laws which are essentially actually the false pretense of religion that they're claiming the very explicit anti-gay stuff is.  Then, I should probably have derived from its name that apologetics would be deigned to kill brain cells in anyone trained in actual logic.
