Easter closures a breach of human rights?

This is the first time I've heard this argument used against the law to force businesses to close at Easter.

I enjoy the irony that the the current law against businesses opening at Easter goes against the Bill of Rights. Sure, if you're a Christian business owner or worker, you don't need to work. But that is no reason to stop others that want to open their business over the weekend. After all, we don't celebrate many holidays of other religions, so it is only fair that business owners that are not Christian don't have to respect Christian holidays. It reeks of hypocracy.

Will be an interesting case to follow. I believe all days should be regarded as equal and all religious holidays should be scrapped. An equivalent number of days of annual leave given to employees. Sure, would mean no more time and a half/double time days, but small price to pay for freedom.
