The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

I lived in Madison Alabama for 9 years. I absolutely hated it. The first thing people did when they met you was that they'd say 'so what church
do you go to?' and I was tired of the constant stream of people knocking on the door with their religious tracts trying to save my soul. I'm very
glad I moved out of there to where religion is a private matter.
That being said, I support Alabama passing this law. It's their right to do so and it is a common sense measure.
As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
Mark I think that you'll find the only language in the U.S. Constituion that specifically deals with religion is "Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."
Religiously based laws could be acceptable as long as they are divorced from the actual practice of any particular relgion.
