Should U.S. Federal or State Laws be Based on the Bible?
So, here it is, just a regular Tuesday in March of 2021, and I have been called out on C99% as a bad person for my strong beliefs in a secular government, and some of you apparently agree that is wrong of me, since you rec'd the insult directed at me.
Can I get an Amen?
Who is willing to explain this? Who here thinks we should base our laws on the Bible?
Yesterday, someone quoted some rando lawmaker saying that what is legal or not should be based on what the Bible says or doesn't say, and called this "straightforward" thinking, followed by the word "No?" (Implying everyone has to agree with this thinking.)
I answered: NO. And I explained that this is because making laws based on the Bible is NOT 'straightforward' in the least -- in fact, I called it a "dangerously stupid idea" -- and I stand by that.
Yes, I am fully (and painfully) aware that we already have (far too many) laws on the books that are based in the bible, or at least on some groups' interpretation of what they think the bible demands.
And I have always been opposed to that. Always. And I always will be. The Bible should *never* be used as a reason to make anything legal or illegal.
I am actually stunned that even a few people here think it's a good idea to toss aside secular government and go with some idiot's biblical beliefs as the basis of what laws should be implemented in this country.
I stand against religion in government. And I stand against those who try to shame me for that.
