If you were asked if you wanted to live in a Middle Eastern Country – a country where the civil laws are based on the Q’uran – you would probably say no.
Rick Santorum wants to be President of the United States and he wants our laws to be based solely on the Bible. No ands, ifs or buts. He said:
“We have civil laws, but our civil laws have to comport with the higher law.”
His higher law is the Bible. Quite frankly, I don’t want to live in a country where our laws are completely and utterly based on the Bible. I believe firmly in the separation of Church and State. If you disagree with me and think that this is a good idea, think about this: Bible law (right there in the Ten Commandments) states that
“Thou shall keep the sabbath holy”.
Um, to Orthodox Jews, the Sabbath starts Friday at Sunset and there’s no electricity or work allowed until Sundown on Saturday. Are we going to follow that law?
Oh, I can hear you, No, of course not. We’re not going back to the dark ages.
Are you sure?
You can’t be sure, not really. A crazy, religious president and you really believe that we all won’t be sitting in the dark come Friday at Sunset?
Allowing Religion in our laws is a slippery slope I really don’t want to go down. And, neither should you.
