@wheresmyskul

in fact another common misconception is that July 4th is the anniversary of the declaration of independence, which was, in fact, instated on July 2nd.

Mr Peabody: "I kinda thought independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain was celebrated on July 4th."

Thank you, sir. That sign was such a glaring inaccuracy about July 4th, that I am shocked and dismayed that you and I may be the only ones who caught it.

U.S. citizens on this site: You should know that July 4th is the anniversary of the day we informed Britain the we were no longer British citizens. We did NOT declare our independence from "religious persecution". We declared our independence from...oh, nevermind. You`re all lost, and will never get it.

@CJ, What do you want from me? I didn`t take the picture. I didn`t make the sign. I have no idea where it is... The sentiment however is ironically deft.

@greekhop: Actually depending on your criteria for an atheist country, The Netherlands may qualify. Only 39% of their people are religiously affiliated. It`s not a terrible place to live, either. It`s a little too socialist for my taste, but it`s a fairly peaceful country.

Am I invisible? Does anyone else see the timestamp or does stupidity hinder your ability to see? It`s not from last year. I don`t see why it`s strange to close a store on a holiday. It`s the norm up here in Canada, for most venues anyways.

It`s not so much for religious oppression as it is the fact that accidents invoving drunk drivers are increased during holidays.

I`m fairly sure over here in UK we can buy it any day of the year so long as the store is open and sells it...

This sign is obviously from last year. I read a few stories about liquor sellers trying to get an exemption to sell on Sunday because of the holiday.

I am pretty certain I saw this post 12 months ago.

madest: Then the sign makes no sense, The few states and counties that still have `blue laws` only restrict alcohol sales on Sundays, not holidays. Unless it`s in a totally dry county or municipality, but then how would any be able open a liquor store in a dry county ?

Otherwise do as mr_c_bowler suggested and just stock up beforehand on Saturday, Problem solved.

I suppose if they are state run liquor stores, they will be closed due to the holiday. Heaven forbid people should plan ahead (like we did when I was a kid and EVERYTHING was closed).

July 4th is on a Monday. Unless some places just outright prohibited it, that doesn`t make sense.

@Gerry, Yes, but the UK and Ireland don`t call themselves Christian exclusively. As as for Rome, that`s just the Vatican which is hardly a country at all.

[quote]Are there any Christian countries?[/quote]
England has it`s own official church run by the government.
Rome is also it`s own country.
Ireland has loyalty to the Catholic Church written into it`s highest laws, although that`s getting chiseled away at.

There are probably more, those are just the first countries that popped into my empty head.

@greekhop "There are no Atheist countries."

Are there any Christian countries?

There are countries where there are more irreligious people than there are religious, that doesn`t make them an athiest country it makes them simply a county,t eh same as the US, the same as the UK. You can`t pidgeon hole free western countries as being christian or otherwise.

Once, happening across one of the Lord`s lost lambs, I decided to pass a message. It was a message of; hope, love, peace and prosperity. I informed this most unfortunate soul, this lost son of our Lord Jesus Christ. I informed him of all the Godly information, information to save his soul. By the end, I was mad with faith and the power of God. This poor soul gazed up at me. With his burning eyes, in which not a shred of soul was to be found and replied. "Go jack off behind a barn churchy."

All in all, verrry satisfying, slept like a baby that night.

I don`t get why anyone has to insult someone for their religious beliefs. I don`t give a poo what you believe in as long as it doesn`t infringe on my rights as a person. Even then, I don`t see the religion at fault, I see the person at fault. The person is an non-nice individual, ot the faith. Besides, people are fallible and drating stupid. Stop generalizing based on the few morons who drat it up for everyone else.

It seems that any old nutjob can come out and say or do any old thing, say its in the name of God or religion, and all the Atheists glady believe him/her and start laughing and pointing fingers, and mocking God as if it where really so (no matter if said action is totally opposite of relevant religious teachings). But if you tell them, hey, wanna hear about Gods love for us? Then they wont believe poo no matter what you tell them. Cause that doesnt play as happily into preconcieved notions and hatreds.

But you know what even funnier? There are no Atheist countries. Except Communist dictatorships. Those atheists are a freedom loving bunch, yeah. Let me not even start on what its like to live in non-christian religion countries. I lived in Saudi Arabia = Sharia law, middle ages anyone? Even the peaceable Thais (Bhuddists) are on the brink of civil war and its a crime to talk ill of their king. Christianity and its minor inconviniences are OK by me. In comparison to the other op

No it doesn`t. Nor does it go to second base on the first date. Gotta save itself for marriage, but even then it`s not likely any sucking will be going on.

Religion SUCKS, end of story. everyone who thinks religion makes a positive contribution to society is profoundly deluded. The Abrahamic god, even if he exists, is not worthy of worship, but you do so out of fear.

@mcmals: Your point is a good one, as was Mr. Peadbody`s. Yet it has to be said: Many of the Pilgrims came to America to escape religious oppression only to set up their *own* forms of religious oppression. In New England, for example, it wasn`t until well into the 19th century that citizens were no longer *required* to pay state taxes to support the Congregationalist church--which also required anyone taking public office to pass the equivalent of a religious purity test.

Bottom line: July 4th is all about independence from the oppression of the British monarchy and has little or nothing to do with independence from religious oppression (although saying so makes for a witty, if erroneous, sign).

No. 4th of July is this coming weekend. Business`s often like to warn their clientele when they`ll be closed. The time stamp is on the picture. Is it a republican requirement to be a complete moron?

"no alcohol on sundays??? america, you crack me up! xD"

Varies by state, and in some cases, by counties within the state. New York, for example, used to have a law that you couldn`t buy before a certain time on Sunday. Now, I think, you can buy any time you want.

In Texas, of all places, no liquor on Sunday. Although as many people have pointed out, the sign is most likely a year old.

I`m all for countering religious oppression, but July 4 is monday.

Furthermore, I don`t see how this would obstruct someone. Why not just buy the booze the day before?

GA is one of those states. Liqour stores are closed and you cannot buy beer or wine from the grocery stores or gas stations. the only way is to go to a restaurant or bar and buy it by the drink, which was legalized within the last several years.
