Published on March 25, 2021

After Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) says residents of Mississippi would not vote on Sundays because it’s “holy,” the state takes advantage of such a great excuse.

    Already unconstitutional, when they assume that ONLY those who are Christians follow the Sabbath Day and keeping it holy. Screw all those Sunday Pro Football and Basketball right!? How unholy is that!? The SCOTUS will not allow religion to be used as a way to suppress other races and religions because they are NOT Christians or if they are atheists.

    Problem with that is that this information was given to Moses. Moses with the Egyptian name happened to be giving this information to the Hebrew people and the others who escaped Egypt so the Sabbath day was actually on a Saturday and not a Sunday.
    Wonder what’s going to happen to people who change the scripture?

    The hilarious thing is that “Sabbath” in Exodus originally meant SATURDAY, which remains the day of rest among Jews today (you know, the guys who wrote the Old Testament?). It is also evidenced by the word for “Saturday” in numerous other languages like Spanish Sabado and Greek Savvato.

    Sunday is THE day Germany holds every single vote because it is our day of rest. Most people do not work on sundays and therefore have time to vote. And those that fo work can vote by mail.
    Thinking that God would not want you to vote is such an odd concept.

    Okay first of all I am from Mississippi and I don’t ever want you speaking for me.

    2and get your facts straight, the true sabbath is Saturday. We Christians were forced to worship the sabbath on Sunday because it conflicted with Jewish sabbath and they couldn’t worship together.

    The sabbath is the day god rested. The 7th day. The end of the days it took for god to create life.

    How the hell are you this old and not know SUNDAY IS THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK!

    Literally named sunday because god created the sun on that day wtf?

    I’m a catholic and she is dead wrong Sunday is not the true sabbath it is Saturday according to the bible and he rested on the seventh day that is Saturday the end of the week. The Roman catholic church changed it to sunday defying the bible to flex there power. I am a strict bible Christian you should study how roman Catholicism began a hole lot of paganism and persecution and death came out of it many true Christians died only for possession of a bible or not swearing allegiance to the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH the PEDOPHILES coming out now isn’t new. People need to study biblical history not white wash it. GOD BLESS

    Not only has she got the wrong day of the week, but she’s forgetting she’s claiming to be a Christian. Jesus said, when asked if it was ok to do stuff on the Sabbath, that “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” i.e. it’s something for folks to use, not something that should be turned into a golden idol.

    So basically they are ignoring the FIRST AMENDMENT. If they want people to respect the SECOND AMENDMENT, then start by RESPECTING THE FIRST AMENDMENT. The first says that people will have RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and her “RELIGIOUS EXCUSE” is based on her own religion thus she is “USING HER RELIGION” to force her religion on OTHER AMERICANS which is in direct violation of the Constitution of the Unites States of American and as such she should IMMEDIATELY be removed from office for violating her oath to uphold such Constitution!

    In her religious fanaticism to suppress the vote, Cindy Hyde-Smith quotes from an ancient religious text. While ignoring the more relevant text: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, of prohibiting the free exercise thereof… or the right to peaceable assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. [Amendment I of the U.S. Constitution] Looks like voting on the “Sabbath” is a protected right Cindy, unless you can find another ancient religious text.

    Keeping the sabbath day holy…..hmmm……and do you know that if you didn’t keep the sabbath day holy it was punishable by death…….this comes from the old testament. And what did Jesus have to say about it……”At that time Jesus went through the grain fields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, “Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath.”

    He answered, “Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread—which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests. Or haven’t you read in the Law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple desecrate the day and yet are innocent? I tell you that one greater than the temple is here. If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” Matthew 12:1-14 NIV…… If you’re gonna talk the talk you better be able to walk the walk…….

    Senator Cindy sounds like a Pharisee from Jesus’ time, in what she smugly opines is permissible to occur on Sundays in Mississippi. Doing one’s civic duty on the Sabbath is off-bounds because of a calendar, or whether it is light or dark outside? For the next few minutes, let’s play by her alleged rulebook, which she may assert supersedes the U.S. Constitution. I wonder what she thinks of the Mayflower Compact… In the gospels of Matthew, chapter twelve, and of Luke, fourteen, we learn that Jesus was about to heal a man with a withered hand. He asked them whether it was lawful to heal on the Sabbath, and they had no answer. He made the man whole, and then told them if anybody had a sheep, an ox or donkey that had fallen into a pit on the Sabbath, they would not hesitate to take hold of the animal and pull it out, and summarized by saying that people are better than animals. Score one for Jesus and sensible people everywhere.

    Yes, the Sabbath was made for people, as Jesus said in Mark 2:27, but some have set themselves up as the judges of others, improperly applying the verses from Ecclesiastes chapter three:

    1 To every thing there is a season,
    and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    2 a time to be born, and a time to die;
    a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
    3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;
    a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
    a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    5 a time to cast away stones,
    and a time to gather stones together;
    a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    6 a time to get, and a time to lose;
    a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    7 a time to rend, and a time to sew;
    a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    8 a time to love, and a time to hate;
    a time of war, and a time of peace. [Holy Bible, Authorized King James Version]

    Senator Cindy and others would have us think only one of these conditions may apply at a time. They are poised to make new Southern blue laws to prevent Americans from engaging in political activities on Sundays, which unduly affects people of lower socio-economic status, who have a stronger correlation to voting as Democrats and who more often happen to be Black or brown.

    Telling Americans they are prohibited from providing food or drink to those who are in line to vote, on one hand, seems an enforcement of some states’ “line warming” laws against vote influencing. On the other hand, applying a Procrustean process to neighborly behavior seems to violate what Jesus of Nazareth said in Matthew 25:34-46:

    34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed  or thirsty, and gave  drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took  in? or naked, and clothed ? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done  unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done  unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did  not to one of the least of these, ye did  not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
    I wonder how many Bible-believing, scripture-quoting politicians are aware of these verses, and how they might apply to their ever-tightening voting laws that seem like voter suppression to the vast majority of Americans? We must be vigilant and ready to defend our freedoms.

    At the time God said that, the Sabbath was still Saturday. To accept Sunday as God’s day, you must accept the authority of the Roman Emperor Constantine (the first one to go Christian), who decided to change the day to Sunday. I don’t know whether God was OK with that or not. That kind of matters, since the Bible also says that (according to God) anyone who violates the Sabbath should be put to death.

    Stopping people from voting in a Democracy is a “last gasp” attempt to hold onto power – stay relevant and simple survival of wholly corrupt evil racist sociopathic loons with really bad ideas – deranged / cruel rapacious policies and horrific behaviors that are unpopular with a MAJORITY of voters. It is LITERALLY WHY they are desperately trying to stop people from voting. Because a majority of voters DON’T like their policies – behaviors – morals – ethics and find their political party repulsive. And so perverting democracy itself and cheating is the only way they can win elections.

    I know how important Biblical accuracy is to this woman, so she’ll be happy to know that the Sabbath is from Friday evening to Saturday evening. Jesus Himself would have recognized it as such. So this kindly Senator can honor God on the Sabbath and also allow for voting on Sundays with no contradictions—win win. 😉 Since according to her this proposed Sunday voting restriction has absolutely nothing to do with the “Souls to the Polls” initiative and an attempt to suppress the African-American vote by complicating that, she should have no objection to reopening voting on Sunday.

    Sounds like a Republican performance issue than a voting issue. If the ‘pubs can win in a fair election, then maybe they shouldn’t be elected. The PEOPLE chose who they feel can do the job best, not the CEO’s politicians or the church.

    I suggest that if the ‘pubs want to win again, then shape up and start putting the people, ALL of the people first before the party.

    First that was a misquote of the wrong bible verse. Second, the only thing etched in stone with God’s finger was to remember Sabbath, the seventh day of the week which is also known as Saturday

    The Sabbath only applies to Jews. The New Testament doesn’t oblige gentiles to live according to Jewish law. Apostle Paul condemned the apostle Peter for trying to make gentiles do so.

    Actually the Bible don’t say the exact day of rest, but you should rest every 7th day and respect said resting day. So the resting day could be on Wednesday, and god would not care

    That was written in Exodus and means Saturday. She obviously doesn’t know the Bible as well as she professes. Many people who work — unlike Republican Congress persons — cannot just get time off to vote, especially in states like hers who want only certain people to be able to vote.

    The Sabbath is not Sunday but Saturday. This is proof that the Papacy is in control that Sunday law is coming soon… The Three Angels message which the Seventh Day Adventist Movement been preaching for years are coming to fulfillment.

    SUNDAY IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST (ROME) AND SUNDAY OBSERVING WILL BE ENFORCED BY LAW.

    It’s is LITERALLY a violation of the U.S. Constitution for the government to designate any day as ‘holy’. Of course, the problem here is that federal elections aren’t controlled by the federal government, and individual states can get away with all manner of rat-fucking since Roberts gutted the Voting Rights Act.

    Sabbath is actually on Saturday. However, as a government official you are supposed to keep a separation between church and state matters so your Sabbath day excuse is no excuse. Now they’re using the bible to defend their bigotry and racism just like they did during the civil war.

    If these racist, evangelical, ‘so-called’ Christians actually read the Bible , especially the gospels, they’d realize that none of the shite they spew out of their mouths is related to Jesus. If Jesus showed up today, they’d lock him in a cage for being too brown, and then they’d hang him on a cross.

    For a country based on secular religious freedom, certainly harp on about Christian superiority. Separation of church and state seems to have been forgotten. Btw, the Bible says Sabbath is on Saturday, like the Jews do it. March 7th, 321, Roman emperor and pope of the east declared Sunday a day of rest. Ethiopian Christians have the whole weekend. That’s the problem with religion, no consistency or truth is flexible under interpretation.
