It annoys me no end. The blue laws need to go. It goes against the Libertarian streak that Texas was founded upon.
Before anyone accuses me of being anti Christian, please keep in mind that the Texas Republic from 1836 through its initial US statehood and through the Civil war and through prohibition was very libertarian.
It is only post WWII that a lot of these ultra conservative blue laws came through.
It annoys me no end that you have to go to a ghetto store on Loop 12 in a bad area of Dallas to buy liquor, when citizens in other states can go to Costco and buy premium single malts at discounted prices
Also, why oh why does the state care if a car dealership wants to remain open all 7 days? What business is it of the state?
Christians need to understand that being pro-God does not mean imposing lifestyle laws on others. Not everyone observes the Sabbath. Already most shops are open on Sunday. It does us no good to ban car dealerships from selling 7 days a week.
Same thing with alcohol. We can already buy beer and wine and all retail stores like Costco and Walmart. Why make this artificial distinction on “spirits”
My point here is that there are many of us Church goers that think of ourselves as very devout. However, we do not agree with the blue laws. Does not make us any less believing of God....
Just saying.. that some of us scripturally do not think alcohol drinking is prohibited... and some of us scripturally believe that the New Testament releases us from Sabbath requirements...
Others may disagree and I FULLY respect that. However, I would like y'all to respect our point of view too.
