Let me guess, you believe there is only one moral standard that all laws should be based on, and that is the Christian morality as defined by
protestant Christianity. Is that correct?
Personally, I am very glad that they aren't based on Christian morality.
If they were, America would be a very different place than it is now.
But that's the thing about America, is that America was meant to be a melting pot. It was not meant to be a country by and for Christians.
Our founding fathers recognized the bad things that a theocracy can do to people, and that's one of the big reasons why they gave us freedom of
religion, is so we can have the freedom to worship as we please or not worship at all.
It really saddens me to know that there are Christians out there who are attempting to turn America into a true theocracy based on protestant
