If Christian religion believes in free well as well as our country believes in freedom, then why does most our rules and tax upgrades such as "sin" tax reflect from the bible? Do you believe this is right? If so why? Please NO scriptures.
Don't forget about the luxury tax. I agree with where your going. What's the next "sin" tax on anything that is fatting?

I'm all for sin taxes. Personally I would much rather they were placed on things that are not needs and things that are harmful than on things like food. I think the title of "sin tax" is more secular than legal. You won't find any laws titled "sin tax laws." It simply comes from the idea that tobacco, alcohol and gambling are not healthy habits and neither is (in the eyes of the general public) sin. Even as non Christians we equate the word sin with wrong doings or unhealthy practices. So it's a perfect fit for things like these. I'm all for them, as I said. And I would rather hear them called sin tax than something like cancer causer tax or liver damager tax... Oh, how about the pocket buster tax?? lol! To me the word is a perfect fit. And the things they cover are harmful, so it fulfills the meaning of the word even though in themselves these things aren't a bad thing in moderation, they still aren't healthy.
