Christian Taliban would tell you Jesus did not come to earth to change the law, but rather to amplify it.

If you don't drink, Oklahoma's archaic laws against alcohol wouldn't concern you much.
The only other state that is comparable to Oklahoma in terms of draconian laws is Utah, and that is because the Mormon church has similar dominance over that state's government that the Baptist church has over Oklahoma's. There is no separation of church and state in Oklahoma. The Baptists control everything with an iron fist. It's an extremely frustrating place to live and I would move today if it were possible.

Liberals want to enact Sharia law? That is total fiction.

But if you look at who Bannon is recruiting to run for office, there is an case to be had that some are in fact attempting to make a Christian Dominionist state out of this country.

Starting with Moore, and on to Erik Prince (Devos' brother and war criminial) and as many extremist christian right-wingers he can get into government using his base dog whistle. Moore is scary and more of his kind in power would be even scarier.

This liberal is an atheist and does not want any religion controlling laws in this country.

That is why I will not even drive through Oklahoma. It is basically Saudi Arabia with rednecks.

I should have and could have moved from Oklahoma long ago when I visited Colorado Springs and fell in love with the scenery. But I'm just a devoted homebody and didn't. Closest relatives have been the same way. Now after many years, Colorado has become a much better state than Oklahoma.

that's a minor inconvenience, not a threat to your freedom.

i do drink. i put up with the minor inconvenience.

never tried to buy at a restaurant on a holiday, but the laws I'm seeing only restrict package sales on holidays, not restaurants.



no answers from bawacky?

Telling people what they can and can't put into their own body based on religious reasoning is not an impediment to freedom? Who knew?

Well, Muslims and Jews don't eat pork. I am sure you would be just fine with laws banning the sale or consumption of pork on Muslim/Jewish holidays then.

After all, it is just a minor inconvenience....

They'd work to make everyone else as miserable and repressed as they are.

certainly not you, since i wasn't talking about what people can and cannot put in their bodies. so i can understand why you are so confused.

in any case, consumption of alcohol is not banned in Oklahoma on any day of the year.
