OK, so they probably aren't ready for that one ............... .... yet

...The Georgia Christian Coalition opposed ending the ban on Sunday sales, arguing it would increase drunken driving and family disruption, said coalition president Jerry Luquire.
"Sunday is a unique day," he said. "We didn't want Sunday to become just like Saturday."
The coalition's campaign against Sunday sales was "gloriously defeated," Luquire conceded.
Many voters viewed the issue as one of individual rights versus a government mandate, he said. They objected to being told by the government when they could or could not buy alcohol.

Mr Tattie Heid wrote:I'm not sure when Massachusetts started allowing Sunday sales, but I've been conditioned to not having it available, so rarely think to buy on Sundays. The Blue Laws were pretty strict when I was a kid--not much open at all, and short hours for what was. The 7-11 was so named because those were famously long hours; now we have convenience stores and pharmacies open 24/7. It's a good thing, of course, when you have an emergency and need something in the middle of the night; and the religious basis for Sunday closing was never anything I was sympathetic toward. I guess I wouldn't go back, but I admit I miss the quiet time, a day of the week and a time of night when the general hustle and bustle stopped. There was value in that, and in knowing that everyone else was experiencing the same--communal ritual, I guess.
