It really doesn't stop anything from happening, but you can't fight City Hall, eh?
It's not Biblical to say you can't have a drink! Where in the bible does it say that? This anti drinking stuff is made up be the churches. That wasn't wine that Jesus turned into water, He turned water into wine. The churches need to mind their own business and stop lying to us.

That's what I'm saying, Mike Town, we didn't like the rule, either, we were thirsty for a drink in Dodge City on Sunday like a lot of the locals, but that didn't give us a pass to buy liquor on Sunday there. I'm just saying you can't fight City Hall, that's all.

Apparently my post you quoted above was corn-fusing to you in some way. It's clear that we had to put up with a goofy, old rule of theirs there - we weren't going to overturn police cars over it, though. Throw out my Biblical reference if that makes it clearer - I'm just trying to understand their logic - I understand that it's all right to drink according to the Bible. Sheesh.

In my post I meant no afence to you. We just voted in liquor stores in this area in the last four years or so, And still not open on Sunday. If you want to have a drink or two that's a personal choice and no business of church. The church needs to teach the Bible and stop making things up.

Mike, I am not sure it is the fault of the churches, I think it goes back to old ideas and yes, the Bible belt mentality. We too went wet about the same time your area did I guess. And yes, can't buy liquor on Sundays but can go to a bar and get a drink. Figure that one out. Let me also add many religions are not opposed at all to drinking. It is still a few, but powerful ones that want to push their ideas down our throats.

Us Catholics have no problem with a libation or two!! And I don't mind the liquor stores here not being open on Sunday. It gives them a day off and I can buy whatever I need Monday thru Saturday and have never run out on Sunday.

totally agree. Us Lutherans and the Episcopalians Share your views. As for having enough on hand, we too always plan for the weekend ahead. If we run out that is our problem. Of course that is easy for me to say, MO is only 10 minutes from where we live and they are open on Sundays.

Being closed on Sunday is fine with me I don't care. I don't know what good it does the stores wont lose any money, It's like you knowing a big storm is moving in you stock up.
