Sunday Closing Laws Explained

Post by moksha » Wed Jul 10, 2019 10:17 pm

Keeping things open and closed on Sunday is for a variety of reasons, for instance, the City of Provo, Utah found that golf courses should be kept open on Sunday because members of the Lord's Church conduct business on the courses, however, the Provo Municipal Pool was closed on Sunday because it was determined that Satan ruled the waters.

Hope that helps.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Everything not on the water at Bear Lake is closed on Sundays, even the fabulous LaBeau's milkshake shop. But getting a Seadoo rental was no problem.

I guess that's why there are no baptisms on Sundays? Damn those waters!

Moksha, have you had your DNA tested? Just wondering if you are any relation to Birdman on Rick and Morty.

My first F&T meeting at BYU-I, one of the Bishopric gets up and talk about how he went into the Rexburg Wal-Mart and "stood for truth and righteousness." I guess the Rexburg Wal-Mart had decided to open on Sundays. But this guy wasn't having any of that. He said he told the manager that this community was founded on morals and how dare he violate those morals by staying open on Sunday. This was my first F&T Sunday in the morridoor. And I remember being like WTF?!? that poor store manager.

Don’t dox the bird.

He’s still standing in line at the Urgent Care waiting to get his DNA tested. It was the only facility open on Sunday.

Mopag, my cousin was a door greeter at the Rexburg Wal-Mart and she would instantly recognize many patrons on Sunday and play a game of fast look away as if not looking at each other meant she wasn’t there working on the sabbath and they weren’t there shopping on the sabbath.
