Sawkerf -

Scalia clearly thinks that the US Constitution allows for legislating morality. I am not qualified to comment on constitutional law. But I assert that legislating morality is a bad idea and goes against the spirit of at least the Declaration of Independence. To begin with, there is no single view of morality. And how does freedom of religion work where the majority imposes its morality on everyone? There is also the idea that “limited government” is a good idea, and I propose this as one desirable limit.

Grizzman -

I respect your decision to believe in your God and to make your personal decisions according to your faith. I ask you to extend the same consideration to me – to make my personal decisions according to my faith. My beliefs are different from yours. I kinda thought “freedom of religion” was my right as a citizen of the US. If you think this discussion is inappropriate, by all means bring it to the attention of the site owners.
