Religion and Country- A Few Thoughts
I am about due for another post about religion and its place in society. By society I am referring to the United States. You can consider this to be a precursor to that particular post because I am due to take my afternoon siesta now, but before I do here are some thoughts.
Some people like to claim that religion is the foundation for all that is good in the world. I disagree. You don’t have to be religious to be a moral person.
When discussing the separation of church and state some people try to prove their point by claiming that the Constitution doesn’t speak about this. They’ll say that no where in the Constitution does it say anything of the sort.
My response to them is simple. There are a lot of things that aren’t in the Constitution. For example you won’t find anything about speeding tickets or tickets received for running red lights. Lack of inclusion is not indicative of the validity of something.
Anyway, that is the general idea. If you have any thoughts you want to share now feel free to do so.
