As a non-drinking Christian physician, I wish everyone would abstain from alcohol and "Remember the Sabbath Day." As an American, I greatly value the freedom our country guarantees that church/religion should be separate from the state. Our forefathers wisely gave liberty to all by stating that the church should not control the state (as it did in most of Europe in the Middle Ages), nor should the state control the church (as it does in communist countries). Our great country alone allows Christians, Muslims, Jews and atheists to have freedom to worship or not to worship based on their personal beliefs.
Your article, "Old Bridge denied Sunday beer sales," stated the magistrates voted "against Sunday sales because it is the Sabbath." This presents two problems. First, it uses government to enforce a religious belief which violates our constitutional freedoms. It is not the government's job to decide what activities are proper or improper to do on Sunday. Secondly, the Bible clearly teaches that the Sabbath is the seventh-day of the week, which is Saturday, not Sunday. It should be left up to God, not the government, to decide which day to make holy. Likewise, it should be left up to the freedom of the individual to decide how to respond to God's Word, not the government to force them.
