I have heard much talk about separation of church and state, but I have never heard anyone mention anything about the blue laws
if people think we were not founded on religion, here is the proof. if you think religion does not play a role in our laws, here is the proof
there is only one reason for blue laws and it is religion. now grant it, they have lessened in the last 50 years, but they are still there
people will sue over the word God or Jesus used at school, bit no one complains about the blue laws

And the Commandments also have led to many alws...
Because most blue laws are not enforce anymore...
Like in Mass it is illegal to have sex with an UN-Married woman!
Or those against oral sex ...
those are not enforce due to privacy laws

Jay I watch a great show on the founding father and the creation of the US Constitution. Most tried to stay CLEAR of any religion or religious laws laws. Yes On PBS I will try and get the name. James Madison was most noted to always keep Government out of Religion and religion out of Government.

Depending on what county. Also it was pretty stupid that you couldn't buy alcohol to consume in the privacy and comfort of your own home on sundays from the grocery or liquor store but bars, restaurants, night clubs and sports areanas were still selling alcohol on sundays.

When I left a year ago, I was hearing chatter about getting rid of that. Haven't heard anything since (though, I haven't cared to research it either)
