Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the US, we have something called "blue laws" that in counties that have adopted them, prohibit the purchase of liquor on Sunday mornings or all day Sunday. It is widely known that these laws are pushed by Christian clergy and sects. Why? Possibly there is a fear that parishioners may get drunk and forget to attend services. Or perhaps it's conceived as a blow to the Devil.

But it is still an area where church-state separation faulters.
