The Middle East is the most religion area in the world and even amount them, Turkey, have since WW1, outlaw religion influence upon the state, with a firm principle saying "religion and state must remain separate" in the west, the church continue to interfere with government policies. In the 70s in Europe, it was even in the law for unwed mother to have their child confiscated by the church and have the mother thrown in church prison for life, because unwed mother is a sin in the church. How do we create law to ensure, religion can stay out of politics?

I think we should set a law saying to force your own religion law and view and to persuade others to force religion view or law upon others is illegal (just like racism) we don't want another religion extremist group, whether Muslim or Christian
Yes, let's make it illegal to force religion on to people. In fact, let's not even allow prayer in public schools. We should take In God We Trust off our money too. And bakeries should be forced to make penis shaped cakes for gay weddings. ;-)
There are two way to sell this law (1) as anti terrorist bill, stopping Muslim extremists, radical Christian would favor it, not noticing it is design to shut them up too (2) pro gay bill, everybody in favor of gay marriage would support it
Hmm... They already tried #1 with the patriot act... As for #2, I think there's an amendment in obamacare about that somewhere... What works best is to call it the opposite of what it is... Religious Freedom Act... You're free to not be religious.
Hey, that is a great idea. "religious freedom act" I love it :)
Well, at least we can do it during martial law. I don't know about the US, but many democracy follow ancient Rome, where during martial law, the President is the Emperor in dictatorship, until the Senate decide to abolish martial law
What followed martial law in Rome was a theocracy founded by Constantine in 325 AD. It was called the Holy Roman Catholic Church. What was Christianity was flipped upside down to create it.
You are correct. What we consider law in America is derived from the principles set forth in the KJV with the intent of maintaining a civilized society. I also agree that as long as people say someone else should do something, the government will.
Joshua, thank you very much for your supportive comment. And I find your voice to be very refreshing.
We all have a voice. It's hard to keep up with all of them, but when a little truth slips out it should be invited. When dogma is regurgitated, we all have an opportunity to enlighten. We're all in this together, and there's many ways to be friends.
Joshua, you certainly have spoken the truth.
