Comment of the Day: Liquor Laws and Church

This week we wrote about how the conservative majority in the Texas House hope to close the state's massive budget gap -- by letting liquor stores open on Sunday so the government can get all that sweet, sweet tax revenue.

One commenter noted that such a change might cause him to modify his churchly habits.
