Cary Wiggins over at Meeting the Sin Laws has a great post on this subject. Check out Georgia law continues to honor the Sabbath.
I have always found some states’ prohibitions on Sunday liquor sales to be bizarre, if not a violation of the separation of church and state. These “blue laws” as we call them in Massachusetts are nothing more than a few sects of one religion’s view on how the sabbath should be honored. I’ve read the Bible… would a guy who called wine “his blood,” really disapprove of us having a cocktail on Sunday, which wasn’t even his sabbath?
