Blue Laws: Philosophy in Action Sunday Radio

By Diana Hsieh

In Sunday morning's live broadcast of Philosophy in Action Radio, I'll answer a question on blue laws that might be of interest. The question is:

Do "blue laws" violate rights? Many communities have "blue laws" – such as prohibitions on selling liquor, or even cars or other goods, on Sundays. Are these laws violations of the separation of church and state?
Interested? I hope so! Here's what you need to listen to the live broadcast:
The full show will cover judging people struggling with temptations, judging others when flawed, chivalry as a virtue, blue laws, and more. You can review all the questions for this episode here: Q&A Radio: 16 September 2012.

To join the live broadcast and its chat, just point your browser to Philosophy in Action's Live Studio a few minutes before the show is scheduled to start. If you attend the live show, you can share your thoughts with other listeners and ask me follow-up questions in the text chat.
