Why are you not understanding the main argument though? Nobody is faulting you for your worldview, you're entitled to your own opinion. However, your worldview doesn't mean there is any need for a compromise under American law. Religion and law are VERY different - ever hear of separation of church and state? Laws that are created under a single religious belief have no place in our country, and this law is a remaining blue law that was only created because of Christianity. As somebody who is hell-bound in your very discriminatory opinion, I will not follow the "laws" of Christianity because Christians think I should, just like you will not follow the beliefs of an atheist. I am not "looking forward to the second coming", and really don't give a rats a** about any of that gibber jabber. Nobody is forcing you to go to brunch on Sundays at any restaurant that serves alcohol - but the current law forces everybody who doesn't believe in your religiously informed opinion to not have the option to drink on Sunday morning if they want to, which is wrong. If you would like to go out on Sunday morning, find a restaurant with the same beliefs as you, or put up with us lushes who are sitting peacefully eating breakfast with our families, while indulging in some alcohol responsibly.

That has a nice ring to it. "My way, my way, my way." My way: 100% voluntary, and by the way, participating costs money, but not participating is free...OH THE TYRANNY!!!You already have it your wayNo we don't. If we did, we'd be able to buy alcohol 24/7/365. (366 on leap year.); why fault people with different worldviews who long for simpler times We've already been over this.. The following portion has no relevance on this discussion.Bible believing people know a great deal about "free will", Jesus gives humans free will on whether or not to accept His free gift of salvation.

You can have as little wetness in your life as you want. Leave the rest of us out of it.

Great, You keep standing. We don't.

I don't have it my way. I can't pick up a pack of beer in the way to a friend's house at noon on a Sunday.

You're not being faulted for your view. You're being faulted because you want to impose that view on others.

Really? So your version of "free will" is making people do things in the way you want them done? That's quite the stretch there, bro.

Quote:

I haven't. And that's just fine.

Quote:

Oh, really? So then why on earth are you asking that the law keep people from having it during a time that you would prefer they didn't? You contradict yourself repeatedly.

Quote:

Then don't be in a "wet" environment. That is your choice.

Now, you keep crying that others are not answering your questions. I've asked several, and you haven't answered...so I'll make a nice tidy list to make it easy:

1. Are you under the impression that everyone who has some mimosas with brunch becomes loud, obnoxious, drunks that are not family-friendly?

2. I'd like to have sex in public. Will you agree to one day a week where people can have sex in public?

3. Would you agree to not practice your religion for a specified time period since others might not like it?

4. Should Jewish rules be able to determine how a restaurant can cook or serve food? Should pork be banished from everyone because it's against the Muslim religion to eat it? Should we just ban all alcohol and coffee because Mormons don't like it? Or is it just Christian beliefs we should listen to?

5. Would you agree to not wear any religious symbols since others can possibly be upset by it? I doubt it.

6. Why is your religion so important to you? Why can't you just not practice it sometimes?

I do believe it was directed at us all, but I too am on my way out. On my way to Heaven hoping as many of you will join me as possible. John 3;16-17. Look it up in the world's best selling book.

"16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."

Love y'all!

My freewill was not given to me by Jesus and will not be taken from me by any of his followers.

"You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill"- Rush, "Freewill"

?? We're going full force on brunches in Chicago by 11:30am. There are 5 bottomless brunch places within about a 7 minute walk of my condo here and they're start filling up before 11am. By noon you're not going to get a seat for hours.
