  • From what I see, it's a self imposed Apartheid. I think the language of non believes is inflammatory (deliberately so) and antagonistic. As the writer's article clearly illustrates.

  • I didn't self-impose the bible-based bills that are being proposed and passed. We have a strange trend going on in our government that is leaning toward religiously based laws. It's clear from the surge of moral legislation that's being proposed in practically every state in this country. She, at least, offers a solution - for people to use their right to vote to change the direction of what she considers religious apartheid. I can't argue that.

  • How do you know if they are bible-based have you read the bills yourself and have your read the Bible to see that both the bill and the bible coincide together.

  • No, the trend is not leaning that way. Not Federally.
    No one is debating her right to vote anyway she chooses. But here perception of what is happening isn't necessarily what is really happening

    Sure, but then you would also have to respect those that use their moral values (even those based on religion) to vote to have those values condoned by the state.
    Can't argue with that

  • We've always had whackadoo proposed laws. I don't think the amount has increased as much as the coverage of the proposed laws has. This is a culture of shock and awe, propagandized drama. Over 10,000 bills are proposed Federally each year. A good portion are extremist whackadoo special interest bills.
