Sunday hunting - Page 534

Do the bill writers envision requiring houses of worship to compensate property owners for the loss of use of their land?

CRC, not allowing SH on public lands isn't appeasement, it's surrender. Out of principle only, since I own the land I hunt, I oppose any restriction on SH other than those restrictions imposed on any other day.

"One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind."

(Romans 14:5 ESV)

Any restriction on days of the week for religious reasons is imposing your religious convictions on others. I'm a Christian above all. This is not taken out of context. Paul wrote it to the Saints in Rome. Show me in the scripture where God in his word tells man to worship on Sunday, and I'll oppose SH. Show me in the scripture where God in his word tells man to build "houses of worship" in the epistles or anywhere in the new testament, and I'll support the proposed "new law"

Either support SH or oppose it, but don't water it down, and don't do it in the name of God. Hunting is as old as man, at least since he was cast out of the garden. Of course, we accept seasons, days and limits to protect the population, but regulation imposed by anti's on GL's should cast aside as should restrictions on where one might hunt in proximity to other land uses except where they already exist. I'm familiar with the issue of waterfowl hunting on navigable waters near gated communities, and I know repeal could cause bring some GL agreements into question. In the first case, it doesn't stand to reason riparian rights should be restricted based on proximity to nearby development under any circumstances, but especially out of consideration to privilege. In the second case, if a land owner with land being part of a GL doesn't want SH on his land, then he can stipulate it so. These things can be worked out, and it would be a travesty to restrict SH on GL's simply to avoid the inconvenience of having to re-negotiate GL leases.

Opposition to repeal can be shown to be based on opposition to hunting in general, special interests including religious, or a lack of temerity in the legislative body. Given the Sportsman's Caucus' tendency toward compromise, and having stated my views, I will gladly support repeal or rewrite of existing unfounded statute, given that any rewrite will be equally unfounded.
