• Yes, banning Sunday shopping will hurt the economy and it's generally a faith-based law and thus violates the separation of church and state.

  • No, Sunday is considered a "day of rest" for Christians, but it can also ensure that all workers get at least one day of the week off.

  • I am a Christian & Sunday-shopping does not offend me. I don't expect the country to base all its decisions on my faith. There are many religions, in America. There are foreign tourists. And there are non-believers. People should have the opportunity to shop, if they want to.

  • .... More money going to the businesses = better economy

  • Rhodesia and Bettabreeder. The two christian white fundamentalists

  • I wanted to say yes. But then I realized that the economy is so over-driven by consumerism that a day off would actually BENEFIT the economy and by consequence, honor the tradition of many religious groups, not just the Christians. If not to please a spirit, let it be a day to enjoy our humanness, giving the flesh a day to relax and rejoice in how far we've come.

Here's a thought ... Should we close every ballpark, golf course & sports option in America because its Sunday?

@SweetTea Why? Its a great day to enjoy activities like that without facing the daily buzz of shopping. The events could be free. The idea is that we were born on a face-paced board game where the majority of players could use a day to skip a turn, step out of the need to consume, and perhaps seize the day with an event within the community. A weekly earth day if you'd like to call it that. Make it universal so that its not only an appeal to Christianity, but the humanness of the species entirely.
