This is an attack on the Christians and on modernity
Mufti should tolerate gay people and civil marriage
And accept to ban marriage under 18

I got the impression that many muslims take half a day off on Friday anyway. I also got the impression that many public employees take half a day off on all working days. At the same time, I got the impression that we need to change our national anthem to Allah byeb3at...

Tunisia is a Muslim country and works Monday - Friday..
What’s the goal of changing the weekend? Shall we do it Friday and Sunday?
And what are the economic consequences as a financial hub when we switch weekend?

More pressing subjects on the country while the clerics from both sides should just spare us their useless comments.

Monday- Friday means they have Saturday and Sunday off , he was giving an example of a Muslim country not having Fridays off, alternative being Sunday- Thursday

Clergy have only one thing on their mind power and money. If this idiot preaches for changing the weekend time know that hes doing it in order to appear more pious and attract more respect in his religious community. Which would inevitably translate into more power consolidation.

U only need to open the civil marriage issue w chouf kif b sekko rkeboun kelloun.

Honestly, and to be totally objective, I believe the Mufti's demand is fair considering we live in a Muslim-majority country.
There should be a referendum about this.

Also, I think we need to stop throwing the word "fanatic" around so airily. This is not fanaticism.

The official weekend in the UAE is on Friday and Saturday and it didn't affect their economy one bit.

Changing anything that deals with your daily life for religious reasons is fanaticism.

I suggest we close on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to please every religious ritual and social habit on Earth, And we can add to them Monday to please everyone else. Because we all know it, everyone hates going to work on Monday.

Also, whenever we have an official holiday during one of the three remaining working days, we take the whole week off, because we do not like to bother hard working people with constant on and off.

But if the official holiday happens to be during non working days, then for fairness, we have to report the due holiday closing, to the first working day in line. And we all know by now what happens when the holiday closing happens to coincide with one of the three remaining working days of the week. That's right, we take the whole week off.

Now also, and for no misunderstanding to take place, if the official holiday happens to be more than a day, closing days should be taken on account of working days So if we deplete the number of working days from one week, we take from the next, and so on and so forth. Eh Enno we're not in the business to steal people's right to some vacation. We are honest hard working people.

Next, we will have to rearrange our Grand Vacations schedule:

Vacances de Noel: 1 month
Vacances d'hiver: 1 month
Vacances de Paques: 1 month
Vacances de Ramadan (new for 2019): 1 month (Plus or minus 3 days depending on whether the moon and star kiss each other or not)
Vacances d'ete: 3 months

If anyone has any more suggestions, leave it till another day. Today we're closed due to holiday.

Lebanon should fire half of government employees and reduce the size of its Army by 40%
And of course fix all the damn fassed.

Instead they are arguing about trivialities.

The official weekend in the UAE is on Friday and Saturday and it didn't affect their economy one bit.

Christians, and particularly the large bulk of Maronites, don't want anything called referendum in Lebanon. You're kidding!

Michel Aoun campaigned for a presidential election through direct vote by the people when he knew he was having most Shia and most most Christians voting for him (that will see him elected), at a time he didn't have support of majority in parliament because we had the 1960 electoral law where majority of votes in the election were represented by a minority of seats in parliament . Where is that proposition today to have the people vote for their president? Dead and forgotten! The MPs will still act as mini-heads of state and choose for the dumb, deaf and blind sectarian sheep their president, PM and speaker and decide for other vital positions in the country. They will place their affiliates based on partisanship and not merit. And mainly this system is borne out of the insistence of those whom the sectarian politics and system unduly favor. That is the truth. We aren't having a sectarian system and these divisions because the 5% Druze have an exclusive right to the PM post in the country. We need everyone to start thinking about country before sect.

Same with the electoral law making Lebanon a one electoral district with proportionality (one man, one vote). The FPM spearheaded the call for it and then backed out under the influence of sectarian, not national interests and considerations. One section of the country is having undue advantage and insisting on that advantage by refusing the country the right to move forward (out of fear that others are retards and bigots who are after eating their flesh) under the the umbrella of religion.

I don't have to be a Muslim to see and feel this; that there is both undue advantage for one section in the country and this section doesn't want the country to move forward, modernize and become progressive and do away with both the sectarian/confessional system and move ahead of TAEF . And when one section of the country has undue advantage (even minute or symbolical advantages, not even concrete advantages; its only symbolical because the presidency by and large has been rendered a paper tiger post Taef), the other sections will naturally complain and claim for more rights under divisionary and sectional headings. And that's why we continue to put sect before country and nation. And we will continue, all of us collectively, suffer it as a nation. The mufti doesn't care about the average Muslim scavenging for food in waste bins. He cared about a holiday on Friday to appear as the local champion of the Muslims. I've seen several pictures of recent on social media where the homeless sleep in the streets under expensive religious banners or poor children are feeding from garbage dumbs. Neither does the patriarch care about how many Georges will set themselves on fire because they cannot afford school fees for their kids. These leaders are exploiting the country through religion and the dumb people follow them to empower and enrich and entrench their domination at the expense of the common citizen. The earlier religion and sect become a private affair and limited to private spaces and in places of worship, the better for the Lebanese as a whole. National interests should take prominence. For God sake, we aren't that pious as a people. We aren't that spiritual or religious even. So why the hypocrisy and why should religion continue to divide us and hold us back as a people? Why the hypocrisy of an ungodly people, driven largely by selfish capitalist ambitions and motives, have religion dictate their lives?

What I think on this subject of weekend holiday is simple and fair. Someone is already calling it an attack on Christianity because the mufti wants Friday to be a holiday. Yet, Muslims don't see it as an attack on Islam for having Sunday as a holiday. And Christianity isn't the only religion in this country and no one is saying Sunday shouldn't be given as holiday. If Sunday is holiday, then Friday must also be. But the question is how do we do with the problem of having a day (Saturday) in between.

Here's is the solution: neither Sunday nor Friday should be official public holiday. Public holiday should be solely optional. Let each employee, whether public or private employee, choose the day of the week he likes and make it his weekend holiday. You will be surprised to find out that the most who will take Sunday off will be Muslim workers because everyone is now accustomed to having Sunday as weekend holiday. We are programmed that way. It will take generations for that to change and Friday and Saturday to be replaced by Saturday and Sunday. Sunday should be a work day for those who want to work and Friday should also be a work day for those who want to work. That means our government offices will work round the week and it is good for our economy. After all, there are Sundays when our cabinet has met and held proceedings. So what's the big deal. No one will stop anyone from going to his place of worship on any given day. In fact cancelling both Friday and Sunday as official holidays, and leaving it open to workers to choose is a bonus for secularism and doing away with religion in government. And I will add that religious marriage should also be option and civil marriage be the other option. We should have the options of civil/secular courts side by side with the religious courts. It isn't by force to follow any rules.

Let the Lebanese people have the freedom to choose. We are tired as a people having incompetent, backward, self centered leaders choose for the people and spoonfeeding them. Let the interest of the people prevail by giving them the freedom to choose. Lebanese do not have freedom to choose in our pseudo democracy. There is no freedom to choose in Lebanon. The people are in political bondage using religion as the wire to bind them. The Lebanese people only have freedom to choose the same leaders for parliament for decades and decades (through sectarian scarecrows) and then to choose their sons and family members after them as the symbols of the sects. Breaking that grip starts with the people electing the president (even if the presidency remains the post for only one sect, or on rotational basis) and voting for a Senate and a de-sectarianized parliament. Our MPs are too powerful. The people are the source of sovereignty, but not in Lebanon. The MPs/parliament can even choose to extend their/it's mandate. Let the people feel they have the freedom to choose and let everyone feel treated fairly and equally and justly as citizens of a country and not as sectarian buffoons.

Stop living in the miserable past. With this attitude, you will struggle to find partners to live with in Lebanon. You are not more Lebanese than another person if they were born in Tripoli or Hermel or Jnoub because of your religion. Get a grip and get your hand off it. For your own good walla. No crusader nor anyone else will give two shits about you because you are Christian. Look at Iraq and Syria and Egypt. We coexist or we destroy each other.
