"The main opponents of The World Calendar in the 20th century were leaders of religions that worship according to a seven-day cycle. For Jews, Christians and Muslims, particular days of worship are ancient and fundamental elements of their faith. Jews observe Saturday as Shabbat, on the basis of the Decalogue's injunction to "Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy" (Exodus 20: 8). Christians worship on Sunday, the Lord's Day, on which they believe Christ rose from the dead. Muslims perform the jumu'ah prayer in Mosques on Fridays, the day they believe Adam was created. Likewise, Seventh-day Adventists are required to worship every Saturday. Adherents of these religions object that intercalary days are counted outside the usual seven-day week and disrupt the traditional weekly cycle. A week with a Worldsday would be eight days long. Adherents of these religions insist that they would have to continue observing their holidays every seventh day, causing the worship days to drift by one day each year (two on a leap year) , relative to The World Calendar week. The day of rest would then no longer coincide with the weekend. These concerns played a role in the United States government's decision at the United Nations in 1955 not to recommend further study."
