The same right-wing boobs who scream about ‘Sharia Law’ should take a good look at themselves! This is “Biblical Law’ by a few! 18 % of the general population agree with these nuts. Not exactly the majority they were hoping for. These “Christian” zealots don’t believe in the Constitution(except as a talking point to fit in with their latest kooky narrative), they believe in Biblical Law.
In 1783 James Madison wrote: “Religion is not in the purview of human government. Religion is essentially distinct from civil government, and exempt from its cognizance; a connection between them is injurious to both. Madison again -“Separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe.”
– Thomas Jefferson – “Question with boldness even the existence of god because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear” Thomas Jefferson. Letter to von Humboldt “I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature. Religions are all alike – founded upon fables. History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes. The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity.”
– John Adams – “I have seldom met an intelligent person whose views were not narrowed and distorted by religion.” The United States is not a Christian nation any more than it is a Jewish or a Mohammadan nation.” “The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.” Treaty of Tripoli, article 11 signed by John Adams and ratified by congress. Adams again- God is an essence we know nothing of. Until this awful blasphemy is got rid of there will never be any liberal science.
– Ben Franklin – “The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason.” in Poor Richard’s Almanac, 1758 ”I have found Christian dogma unintelligible. Early in life, I absenteed myself from Christian assemblies.“ “to follow by faith alone is to follow blindly.” "Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.” –
– Thomas Payne – “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel”. – “Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind tyranny in religion is the worst.”
