This thread has gone way over to theology - which is not a bad thing sometimes, as photography is about art, and art is about expressing something internal, and spirituality and religion are primary components of internal side of a human being, aside from his physical being and possessions.
To clarify the issue of BH and Adorama's websites on Sabbath. Both these companies are owned by orthodox Jews, and both observe the Sabbath. Neither company employs people on the Sabbath.
The question of their leaving the website active on Sabbath, collecting orders that would be processed on the following Monday, is an area which could be open for scholarly discussion, as the website serves the general public, which is primarily non Jewish, and its being active does not advocate transgressing the Jewish Sabbath.
This is especially true if they state openly on the site, that all orders will be held and processed only AFTER the Sabbath.
