Come on Texas – it’s time to move on to the 90s.
I say this because when I was in the Navy in the 90s, I discovered that Texas was one of the few states that still abided by the so-called “blue laws”.
In case you weren’t aware, “blue laws” are laws that were put in place to prohibit the sale of certain items on Sundays. Some were very random, such as the banning of nail and screw sales on Sundays. I don’t know why you couldn’t sell nails or screws on the Lord’s Day, but luckily that changed in the ’80s, according to the Austin American Statesman.
However, the ban on the sale of alcohol on Sundays remained in force. Since the “blue laws” apply only to Sunday, it is clear that they were put in place by Christians who did not want additional temptations on the Sabbath.
The thing is, as a Christian, I like to drink a little on Sundays after I get out of church. And that comes from someone who is in church almost every Sunday.
So I usually make sure to fill the liquor cabinet on Friday or Saturday because if I forget I’m out of luck on Sunday because of this outdated law.
Hopefully that is about to change.
KHOU reports that several Texas distillers are pushing for alcohol sales to be allowed seven days a week. The goal is for the law to be changed during the next session of the Texas Legislature in 2023.
My thing is people are going to be drinking on Sundays anyway so might as well allow liquor stores to generate extra revenue and raise extra taxes which hopefully will be put to good use by the government .
