Isn't is funny that we're supposed to stay sober (or at least not purchase intoxicating beverages) in order to honor a man whose first miracle was to turn water to wine? Alanis Morisette and others who misuse the term might dub this ironic.

all blue laws do is make people who want to drink go to bars. No beer sales on Sunday is one of the most idiotic, counterproductive rules ever created.

and yes, Jesus would probably enjoy a nice IPA on his day of rest.

The lingering blue laws strike me as arbitrary and, frankly, just plain nuts.

I think it's possible to love Jesus and to like beer. Heck, I LOVE beer, and it does not interfere with my infintely greater love for Jesus. Indeed, I suspect that Jesus himself would have a similar affection for the beer that I drink. (WWJD?: What Would Jesus Drink? India Pale Ales, no doubt!)

I wouldn't be at all surprised if he, too, thought the blue laws silly.

Don't need government telling us how to live. Most of this crap actually comes from the far right. We automatically think the far left is the problem, but they are not - all they want to do is tax us into oblivian and redistribute wealth - and of course, have abortion on demand. The right tries to use government to enforce morality and that's even worse.
I mean if I want to go to church on Sunday, I will. If I want to buy some beer on Sunday, I will. If I want to have an abortion on Sunday, I may not, but it is nice to know I can. Above all, I won't force you to do any of those things or pass laws that prevent you from doing them either.

So why then did the "far right" capitulate and lead the way in pushing for the referendum? Could it be the long stream of massive contributions from the liquor industry to Lynn Westmoreland and his buddies in the state house? That's right, Mudcat, y'all proved it--- campaign cash will get you anything including a road.
