Good decision in
Limerick re Good Friday & Pubs - No religion should have its devotional practices enshrined in secular law! Freedom to practice yes, but not to enforce on those who do not share their faith. I think in time this will come to be seen as a positive step both for people of religious disposition and society at large. We are not children and as mature citizens we do not need the State telling us we can't have a drink in a pub on Good Friday. Those for whom this observance is important might find it all the more meaningful when it is a matter of choice not law and calls on them to witness in the face of the prevailing culture. After all Jesus was counter-cultural so why do Christians want their faith assimilated into the secular order?
