Please pick up a history book? There are already a bunch of states which do not allow the creation of bars near churches, schools, hospitals etc. Here's an example from - you guess it - New York :Originally Posted by Establishment Clause
When you can tell us what the establishment clause actually means and what it has to do with whatever nonsense it is you're talking about then you're welcome to come back. Till then? K Thanx Bai.Two Brooklyn lawmakers are tightening a law so people don’t drink near where they pray.
Under State Sen. Dan Squadron and Assemblymember Joan Millman’s bill, a loophole will be closed in the so-called 200-foot law, intended to keep nightlife establishments a reasonable distance from schools and places of worship.
“By clarifying that measurements must be taken from the property line, as was always intended, this bill creates a clear, consistent standard for communities and establishments to follow – another step toward desperately needed consistency and clarity in licensing,” said Squadron of the bill that recently passed the Senate.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
It's "liberal" to believe that Jan Brewer is a racist? Wow. Are you suggesting that conservatives don't believe that a person could be racist?How about some more?
One has to be a Christian in order to be a centrist? There are no atheist/agnostic centrists in your world? Interesting.I'm saying that many Christians believe that laws in the U.S. should be based upon Old Testament laws. That's why so many of them are such big fans of having the Ten Commandments posted in local courthouses. They believe that God's laws supercede those of mankind.
I don't think that you even understand what it means to be a centrist. Being a centrist means that you have BOTH liberal and conservative beliefs. It doesn't mean that you only have conservative beliefs.
But, I'll tell you what...we can continue this downstairs, rather than again disruptiing the thread. In fact, feel free to create a survey about me, and see if your opinions are shared by others.
Hope that helps.
And, I'm not going to apologize to you, dear, when I expressed agreement with you in post 4.
p.s. Have fun on The View today, Whoopie.

while we're trying our hardest to offend everyone, how 'bout a HQ for neo-nazis, a non kosher pig slaughter house and another division of the westboro baptists, that way everyone can bitch about something equally
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
