Natural Daylight Time for Church Going

Church-going during NATURAL time . . . thank you very much. This was one of the reasons to protest daylight saving, according to a 1950’s Drive in advertisement in USA.

The arguments against it were global. It was supposed to fade our curtains and stop the cows from producing milk. But it was even worse for the Americans – it threatened to messed up the Drive In business by making people wait longer for their movie, or not go out at all. Thats why the Drive in people produced this anti-daylight savings add in the 1950’s. See the whole thing here.

Does anyone know what position the various churches took, if any?

  • Who wouldn’t you want to save natural time? Especially if its sandwiched between messages about movie ratings and bbq pit burgers. While we’re at it, we should save other good things like our 2nd amendment rights and sanctity of marriage.

  • Thanks for the video of the add. What really struck me is the pace…seems we don’t take time like that nowadays to watch though sometimes that’s not such a bad thing. I can’t help but wonder though what we’d see if we watched a bit more…
