  1. can someone explain to me what is the relevance of this law and why is it even a law? it is illegal to have strip clubs i dont see the police doing anything about it but you want to tell people about alcohol

  2. All stupid OLD CATHOLIC LAWS need to br WIPED OFF THE BOOKS. So let’s understand this because you know some FOOL is going to come with their jibberish for the non intellect so you cant sell a beer up to 11:59 today until 12:01 am Saturday morning ?? Christmas Day and Corpus Christi Day as well ,??? Who are they with their European Doctrines and religious beliefs ,??? Fire for on all their abomination and atrocities within those sanctuary’s which are more satanic than
    the consumption of alcohol on Good Friday. Old times thinking not working no more we are a WOKE generation and we are not looking back and I am proud to be part of it . We have been mentally enslaved far too long.

  3. Crap I not catholic why I must celebrate their holidays that’s against the constitution

  4. Lawlessness is on display ! Whether we like a law or not it must be obeyed . Be civil.
