The disturbing trend of enacting biblical laws into state or federal laws. Actually this is not a recent trend, it goes as far back as religious history itself. And has even been a part of American History since it's begining (ok, since the white-euro-bastards landed on it...). Unfortunatley there has never truly been a seperation of church and state in America, as political leaders with strong religious beliefs have penned laws to suit their own morality. As the church grew in power in America we've seen more and more attempts by religious organizations to enact legislations to push their moral agenda on the U.S. most recently these have involved issues such as abortion and gay marrige. The Christian Coalition dolls out more money to political campaigns than I have seen in my lifetime, all to make sure candidates will tow thw biblical-line. Legal cases in the southern US (where the christian right-wing is very prominent) have brough cases to court based not on state or federal statutes, but on biblical premise (I'd hate to see the legal precedence set by some of the cases in states such as Tennesee and Mississippi), such as removing a child from a family of two men and one woman (although I believe that the case was being taken to a higher court), this case was brought to court even after a social worker stated that the child was being more than adequatley cared for (actually some testified that the child was better cared for than most as there was always a "parent" figure present), the first round was lost by the family because all three parents slep in the same bed, even though the two men had never engaged in homosexual activity (according to testimony). A lower (county) court decided that since the family was not christian they did not hav eto fit what the "christian definition" of a family was, however the case was appealed once (to state), and that ruling was overturned. I do not know the outcome from the fedral court case.

This is just an example of the type of morality legislation that outrages me, personally. Shoot, I'm a jew, should I take every family that serves their child pork to court?
