Blue Laws?

Sunday September 23rd, Amos 8: 4 Hear this, you who trample the needy and do away with the poor of the land, 5 saying, "When will the New Moon be over that we may sell grain, and the Sabbath be ended that we may market wheat?" 7 The LORD has sworn by the Pride of Jacob: "I will never forget anything they have done. Very few places if any have blue laws anymore. I remember running into them in the south in a summer job during college. We live in a multi-culture world it is true. Sabbath is different for different people and I feel society should respect the many traditions and not arrange its schedule around just one group to the exclusion of others. Having said that, lack of respect for all traditions doesn’t exactly cut it either. Look around on any given holy Friday or time of prayer for Muslims, Sabbath from sundown Friday to Sundown Saturday for Jews or Sunday for Christians and you will see the economy humming along. In the mean time, we as a society have lost more than just our respect for the third commandment.
