Religious rant copied from my LJ




As of late, I have noticed that Dubya has complained a lot of legislating from the branch I happen to feel that there is a bigger problem to worry about.


Legislating from the pulpit. This notion that the religious should have any control over the US Government, and that they should be free to use their religion to codify law. That is not their right to do. I don't care that the majority is supposedly Christian (tyranny of the majority is still tyranny). I consider the Bible to be a book written by men of their time. No more, no less.


Freedom of religion means freedom from religion as well. So I must look askance upon anyone who claims that the Christian faith should rule the US. I should also not need to remind the people of the US that religious rule does not work very well, and that any holy text is a poor basis for domestic or foreign policy (one need not look further than the Middle East for a case in point). Do I also need to remind the US of the first amendment, and how no law shall be made to assist or hinder religion?


And yet, there are still laws that keep athiests from running for office. Can someone please explain this? My best bet: history shall once again repeat itself.
