    How many legally operating opium dens do you see today in the US?
    Well of course government can regulate, but that doesn't mean that "there is also no constitutional right to own a business that is open to the public,..."

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    There is no afterlife. You're terrified of nothing. I guess that's okay, you bow down to nothing too.

    No one is "perfect" man - we're all flawed and at least in my religion Jesus sacrificed himself knowing that we are all flawed and will commit sin.

    I suppose intent is really what makes a sin a sin...

    Actually, there is. Your denial or reality is quite irrelevant.

    There isn't one written into the Constitution. Wasn't that the logic behind "there is no constitutional right to equal protection", it wasn't actually written in the Constitution?

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    In the afterlife, the just will be made perfect.

    Nope, you'll just be dead like the rest of us. Deal with reality for once.
