Eloquently said. Thank you for typing this in such a straight-forward, simple way. (rb)
We live in America. In America, we have a Constitution. The Constitution sets forward a system of governance, a set of basic rights, and a set of basic laws by which we have ruled ourselves for the last 233 years. In case you are confused, the Constitution is not the Bible, or vice versa. The two are not interchangeable, and even if the Bible says something is wrong or right, that does not mean the laws of our country reflect that. You are welcome to follow the laws of the Bible in this country, but that doesn’t mean everyone else has to follow them, too.
And no, this isn’t a Christian nation. This country was founded upon the principles of the Enlightenment movement, a movement among which some of the great philosophers and minds were not Christian at all. While there are many Christians in this country and some of our founding fathers (but not all) were Christians, the Constitution was in fact written so that anyone, regardless of religion, could live in this country by the religious values they so choose. In fact, the Constitution is written so that even those who don’t believe in God are allowed to do that, too. It is part of the greatness of this nation, that we are all able to live together peacefully, with mutual respect for one another.
That being said, please refrain from trying to impose your religious views and laws on the rest of the country. I know you may think I’m a godless heathen with no morals, but in America, as long as I’m not breaking any laws, that’s perfectly okay. And yes, we do live in a democracy, but that doesn’t mean you can vote people’s Constitutional rights out of existence. In fact, the Constitution specifically says you can’t.
If there are any further questions about what rights people — all people, not just the ones you like and/or agree with — are guaranteed, you are welcome to consult the U.S. Constitution.
