    People are insane when it comes to money. Some people dont care about OTHER people. Some people are only concerned about making their wallets and bank accounts fatter at any price.

    Well What’s the difference in buying it on Saturday for Sunday!!!! Really think about it you buy it on every other day of the week so what’s the difference on Sunday also??????? I see so many self-righteous and so many hypocrites on here leaving comments. Let’s see what skeletons you have in your closet. Before you go to passing judgment on everyone that drinks. My skeletons are I cheated on a few tests in high school. I drank underage, smoked some pot once, and ran around with a married woman once. And before everyone starts the bashing. I pull in $ 125,000.00 a year with a great job. Beacuse I have to work out of town for a good paying job. I do believe that jesus’s disciples drank wine. So did they go to hell to for that?????

    Guy south of I-20 is right. could not have said it better myself. If you oppose drinking and/or beer sales on sundays. STAY AT HOME. Do not go into stores that sale it. A lot of you sure don't mind shopping at the big box stores, they have a huge beer selection. DOUBLE STANDARDS here. It is a fact of life. times change. get over it, get over yourselves, and just be happy. Just think one day marijuana will be legal, what will people say about that?

    Maybe all those who vote for Alderman and Mayor in the city need to remember this come election time! Philly is a beautiful friendly town and it is going down the wrong path. Maybe it is being led by the wrong people.YOU THINK!!!!! And money is not the root of all evil BUT the LOVE OF MONEY is.

    Wow, I'm late to this party! Do you honestly think people won't get beer if they really want it just because they can't get it in their town on a certain day? No, they'll go somewhere and spend their money somewhere that will sell it to them. The store owner will laugh all the way to the bank and the other town will get that much more tax revenue. Why not keep the money in Philadelphia? No store is forced to sell beer so they can simply refuse to sell it if they're so opposed. Plus, allow me to point out that the Bible does NOT say not drink at all, it says not to drink too much. The argument that having a beer is going to send someone to Hell is pure garbage and one that has been a stumping point for fire and brimstone preachers for generations (and before you pass judgement on me, I am a Christian and only God judges me).

    Well if Neshoba county don't sell beer on Sunday people who wants beer will find other counties to get it and just be increasing that counties sales. So why not keep it in Neshoba.....
