Instructing Committee on Civil and Religious Rights to Aid in Removing Oppressing Sunday Laws

RESOLVED that this Council recognizes with much gratification all efforts to repeal unjust and oppressive Sunday laws in behalf of those who observe the seventh day as Sabbath.

RESOLVED that the Committee on Civil and Religious Rights be instructed by this Council to aid and assist, as far as it is in their power, in any legitimate effort to remove such Sunday laws, as they exist in several states, as encroachments upon the civil and religious rights of American citizens who, in accordance to the dictates of their conscience, observe the seventh day as a Sabbath.
