Thread Name: BS: The Religious Left
Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
There are probably as many different kinds of Christians, Jim, as there are individuals who call themselves "Christian". I know that.

As for legislated morals...all our present day morals came down through old religious traditions of one type or another. It is, in fact, impossible to separate religious philosophy from the state, because our whole civilization and its prevailing assumptions were built by religions, most of which are at least 2,000 or more years old. This is true whether or not it is officially recognized, even in the case of Communism, which purports to be non-religious, when in fact it IS a religion. You can have a religion even without an official God (a supreme being). Quite easily, in fact.
