alcohol on sunday?

is this sinful? what's God & Jesus' official stance on this? (I remember being surprised when moving to the DC/Virginia area that liquor is not sold on sunday... though you can still purchase plenty of beer or wine and get bombed that way, or just buy your liquor on saturday or go to a bar)

also, do "morality laws" such as this defeat the purpose? people are not abstaining because they believe in it, but because they have no choice

I just talked to God, and She demurred on the subject; Jesus seems to think it's all right as long as you share some of your cheap red wine with a bum outside your church.

I don't get it, everybody imbibes alcohol when they supposedly drink the blood of Christ anyway, I don't see what the controversy is.

If you're a Christian with your own set of ideals and moralities, you should stick to them everyday, not just on Holy Sunday.

If drinking on Sunday is a sin, I'm going to hell.

BTW, would this count if you're drinking Saturday night into early Sunday morning? I've done that one a lot too.

Silly Puritan laws.

I think Puritans drank plenty of beer the rest of the week, they just thought drinking on Sunday was wrong. I don't know of any other denomination that holds this view, though.

I actually cannot believe this question is even being asked. But, that said, let's leave God out of it just this once, maybe.

I really don't think it rates that high on the list. Sunday is only God's day if you regard it, and treat it, as such. For the non-Christians out there, it's just another day. End of story.

The Catholic church obviously doesn't have much say in DC.

I don't think that drinking alcohol on any day of the week is necessarily wrong. I don't drink - that's a personal decision, partially based on alcoholism in my family. But, according to the Bible, getting drunk is wrong (on any day of the week).

I have no clue what the offical stance is but alcohol is not sold until after Noon on Sundays where I'm from. This was to keep people from drinking and then going to church or Mass if you're Catholic.
