Where is the Respect for Churches?

No Alcohol Sales Before Noon on Sundays!

RALEIGH, N.C., May 9, 2017 | TruthPR | – The Christian Action League of North Carolina is calling on pastors and other church leaders across the state to speak out against the so-called Brunch Bill,an alcohol measure that would allow cities and towns to roll back the time for restaurants to start selling alcoholic beverages from noon to 10 a.m. on Sundays.

The Rev. Mark Creech, CAL executive director, said the measure would worsen underage drinking, undermine the ABC system and diminish the influence of churches on the culture.

Historically, North Carolina has delayed selling alcoholic beverages until after the noon hour on Sundays in deference and respect to churches. This bill demonstrates a tacit disrespect. Where is this respect now?he asks in a letter to legislative leaders. He further points out that the bill works against the ministry efforts of churches, so often the very institutions that serve people struggling with alcohol abuse.

The CAL is urging pastors to sign the letter (http://christianactionleague.org/where-is-the-respect-for-churches/) to Senate President Pro-Tempore Phil Berger, House Speaker Tim Moore and all members of the General Assembly.

Its time for church leaders to speak out before its too late,Creech said.
