Today, I stopped to to help an old woman whose car broke down. She said "Thank God someone pulled over!" so I told her "God isn't real" and then I slashed her tires and drove off.

I am a Christian. I do not speak for all Christians, only myself. I think I would vote no because many towns that have adopted package sales have seen rises in crime. They have had more DUI, car wrecks caused by DUI, etc.
provide proof of these statistics and a list of towns where it happened, or youre just making up a false statement to help justify your vote.

ok, feel like a complete idiot after you informed me the thread was started to make a point. I completely understand your point. As far as the wet/dry or packaged liquor vote, in my opinion, towns need to open their eyes to what brings businesses, restaurants, and revenue to their town. I personally choose not to drink however I also don't judge those that do. I can go into a nice restaurant , doesn't mean I have to sit in the bar area. Those who choose to buy packaged alcohol will do so whether they have to drive over the bridge or go to Paducah. Why not have the revenue generated in our hometown rather than someone else's. That being said, Kentucky as a commonwealth, is losing billions of dollars in revenue to bordering states that allow casino gambling. As if horse racing isn't gambling. People and states tend to be hipicritical in order to make themselves feel better about their own misgivings. Selling alcohol doesn't make alcoholics, casino gambling doesn't make a gambling addict. Those are personal choices. People use the bible and certain passages from the bible out of context to support what they say. I too believe god is not judgmental so what gives us the right?
It's cool. Most people would never say anything after something like this. I'm glad we're in agreement about it all. Was just trying to provoke thought. Take care

Provoking thought is a good thing but as you may have noticed from several of the other comments, a lot of people are scared to actually think rationally for themselves, it's easier to follow the way the majority is thinking. Its sad that we have the privilege of living in a country that is free yet the majority of us are scared to think freely. Our men and women of the military spend each day making sure we keep our freedom, perhaps we, as a country, should be thankful and take advantage of their sacrifices. You accomplished your intent with your post:)

no need to justify my vote, it's totally left to my discretion, just as your is to you. Vote yes, vote no. It makes me think no more or less of you. Just stating my opinion on the matter. As I said before, alcohol is no more evil than a gun. It's the person with it in their hand that owns that responsibility.

It may be true among some people that I accomplished my goal of provoking thought in this thread. However, it seems that once my goal was explained, the conversation ended. Lol

Any real christian won't go out to eat on Sunday because it's the lord's day. In fact supporting this is just as bad as liquor stores. Boycott all restaurants and stores that are open on Sunday. One sin is as bad as another one. Anyone who argues against this is just picking and choosing what to support in their faith.
Uh...the real sabbath is Saturday. That is why the Seventh Day Adventists church holds services on Saturday. Catholics go to mass Saturday evenings too, as well as other religions.

The sabbath has been changed in some demomanations. Some call it Sunday, some Saturday. The point is still the same. You and your whole church can boycott either or both if you like.

- people who go to church, go out to eat afterwords all the time. That doesn't make a persons faith change, whats the difference between eating at a restaurant and praying before you eat, and being at your home and praying before you eat? I see none.

It isn't about your faith. It is the fact that you are supporting a business that isn't keeping the Sabbath holy. You are impeding another person from worshiping by making them work. That is the sin.

In keeping with this train of thought a person shouldn't stop to pump gas on the way to church because gas stations shouldn't be open. Don't go for breakfast before church cause they shouldn't be open. Don't go to Walmart to pick up liquid tylenol for your child who started running fever during bible school because Walmart shouldn't be open. It doesn't bother me that restaurants etc are open on Sunday. It bothers me how ppl who have just come from church treat the ppl who had to work on Sunday by not tipping their server or being rude to the checkers. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian anymore than parking in the garage makes you a car. The building is just a building after all.

Necessary medical services have always been available on the sabbath. But there was a time im my life that gas stations WERE closed and most stores WERE closed on Sunday. I just picked the restaurants when I started this thread because it would get a bigger response. The point is still the same. Creating demand for people working on the lord's day is sinful. It's just as sinful as allowing liquor stores in god's eyes. One sin is the same as another. It's just that many church goers want to go out to eat on Sunday and are not willing to give that up. Opposition to the town going wet makes them feel better about themselves. Not going out to eat after church is contributing to others working on the lord's day and therefore encouraging others to violate one of the ten commandments. But that would cause them to alter their own behavior. They're not willing to do that. Even for jesus.

I agree except I can't believe it's a sin in gods eyes to sell liquor. That's absurd, if you believe it.

You two have it right. I do not drink due to religious beliefs, however I eat at places that sell drinks. My take on it is, those who will not eat at establishments that sell liquor by the drink in Murray, should never eat at them in other towns/cities. Also, they should NEVER buy gas at a station that sells beer. Be real and live what you believe. As to not eating out on Sunday, I have no problem with it, however I do have a problem with the church goers who act all "holy" on Sunday morning, and anything goes during the week. Of course I usually think of one particular detonation in Murray that does this.

I don't believe it is a sin, and neither does the bible. Read the last page of the "vote wet" thread. I don't have time right now to repost it all.

I think this is really all people need to know about it.

[QUOTE who="John 2:1-11"]<quoted text>
On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him,“They have no more wine.”
“Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied.“My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants,“Do whatever he tells you.”
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.[b]
Jesus said to the servants,“Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them,“Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”
They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said,“Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”[/QUOTE]

Yep. Just for good measure Numbers 6:3 refers to wine and grape juice separately. In case someone wants to attack with the false, but widely believed idea that wine meant juice in the bible.
