Cheers, Nova Scotia!

Nova Scotians are for the first time allowed to drink in bars and night clubs on the so called Good Friday today. New legislation in effect as from last summer allows pubs to have open:

Previously, anyone wishing to drink in public had to order alcohol at an eating establishment, and the cost of the drink was not allowed to be more than the cost of the food consumed.

While legislators have recognized that not everybody in a secular society shares the religious values of the majority, some commentators seem to have hard time swallowing that others may want to swallow a pint or three at any given day:

Why are we as a society so blind to the fact that this continual devaluing of our religious holidays has a direct affect on the morals and values displayed on a daily basis in our society. What message does this send to especially our young people and children? 

As far as I understand, the new Nova Scotia Liquor Control Act does not force anybody to go out for a pint but just allows doing so. If I did not miss something very essential, the author of the quoted comment is still free to excercise her religious and moral believings. Why would she want to impose her believings on others?

Cheers! 🙂
