Of course part of the Christian Coalition's "Agenda for America" includes the stoning of adulterers and the drowning of witches.

Thanks, Terry, for exposing this.

How about chemical castration of gays? I have heard some on the way right call for exactly that.

Regardless, it starts small. It doesn't just turn into an Indonesia overnight.

Seekret mooslim!

I have no idea what moolism is. But if you think for one second that the Muslim school Obama attended as a child didn't teach from the Koran, then you're not as smart as you claim to be.

And I want to a catholic elementary school for a while. You see how much I LOVE catholicism and christianity.

Your point?

I made it - people that want to wed their religion with government are not really thinking it through.

Consider you've got to quote an event in India which has no bearing whatsoever on American politics or OUR 1st Amendment.

My point.

My point.

Mine, also.

The reason we don't see this in our beloved country is because groups like the ACLU are constantly fighting to keep christians from making their beliefs our de facto state religion.

Horse hockey TC. For 200 years, long before the ACLU came along our courts did a good job of keeping "christians from making their beliefs our de facto state religion" and you're assertion otherwise is Oscar Meyer.

TerryRC,

So do you think that whatever a religion teaches should lead to a policy that is its exact opposite?

Like blue laws and cohabitation laws and...

You get the point.

No. Logic should be behind legislation, not religious beliefs.

If, for instance, you want to ban gay marriage, come up with some objective research that shows WHY it should be banned. Don't use the argument that it is a sin.

Terry,

I contend now and have always contended that the government should not define marriage at all. If the institution of marriage conveys as many protections and benefits as the gay rights crowd says it does, I must ask to what extent we are discriminating against the single. Why can't they have the same protections and visitation rights without being married, I ask.

I would like to know the governments compelling interest in governing marriage before I wish to consider their redefinition of it.

I'm sorry if I seem to use generalities.

I understand that you are a more moderate christian than, say, Keli. Not necessarily in your beliefs, but in your idea that you bring sheep into the fold by example, not by force.
