  • What do you mean? That is really vauge.

    I guess none. Laws are made by governing bodies, not schools of thought.

  • While a church cannot make laws, it's possible and unavoidable that people may vote for or against laws based on their own personal religious conviction, and if the majority have that conviction, the law passes. That's not the same as a religion making the law.

  • It depends only on the religion of the people in power. No specific religion is given authority in the US. Other countries have religious authorities...but not us. Freedom of religion.

  • Where?

    Answer by Bezu at 4:14 PM on Jul. 6, 2010

  • Separation of church and state. No specific "religion" is allowed to make specific laws.
