...on my previous post there are several things I wrote that didn't quite carry the weight or meaning I meant it to... I never claimed to be an excellent writer (not even a good poet,
My comments were based on the fact that our government has grown and inserted tentacles into every aspect of our lives when it was not MEANT to be that in the first place. And now the only recourse is to enact MORE laws. Read Jefferson, Adams and other founding fathers' letters and documents.
I also believe that laws are necessary... just that at a Federal level they are often wrong / misplaced, and the fewer the laws the better off everyone is. Not just social law but tax law and just every form of law.
I also said that what you do in your own home is none of my business as long as it does not hurt me or mine... that is partially true. I can still worry about your salvation and wish to introduce you to God.
Moral legislation might seem like a good idea but... how did that work out for the Israelites?
The problem NOW is that anti-religious groups are trying to work legislation to their advantage and are having some success because they have infiltrated society and government at high levels. This country was founded on the basis of freedom OF religion (who came here first? who laid down the first towns, the first local governments and why did they come here?) they are attempting to completely flip the original ideas of this country to be freedom FROM religion. And religious folk are trying to counter with other legislation. It's a civil war of sorts... just not violent for the most part. Really our government was supposed to be simple and generic and support neither "side" in such a case, except to support certain "inalienable rights" granted by "the creator".
Anyway, I ramble now. Sorry.
