The morality of one religion over another has NO PLACE in government and authoritative institutions. It must be the rule of law driven by fairness,
equality, justice, and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Don't forget, the Puritans came to America to avoid having one religion/moral code shoved down their throats and that had much to do with why our
Founding Fathers had the wisdom to separate Church and State.
There is a public code of conduct driven by law (i.e. The Constitution, The Magna Carta, etc.) and then there is a personal moral code that can be
driven by religion, spirituality or theological philosophy. As long as a person does no harm to his neighbors and obeys the public code of conduct,
his personal moral code is and should forevermore be his alone....to impose this on another being violates the founding principles of the
aforementioned "public code" that guarantees liberty and freedom to "everyone".
The GOP has swung so far right they are approaching break away speed and are in danger of launching themselves out of the
atmosphere...ok...sorry...they have already done that...but...They are entitled to their own personal moral code. To try...through manipulation of
law...to impose that on others is akin to time traveling back to the "Inquisition" and how Christianity was "imposed" upon the Native Americans and
everyone else that believed differently than the Vatican.
Before you tout the benefits of a Religion based "Public code"...think back real hard about the time that this was acceptable...and recall the horrors
of this age...
