All religious text have passages that can be misinterpreted and religious segregation would occur where those who don't follow State religion would be second class citizens.
I don't even like my MP's talking about religion and the only decent thing Blair did in his years was shut his mouth about his faith until he left office. Any politician who bases their decisions on religion even if it contradicts his constituents views shouldn't be in office
"Government that governs least governs best" - John Leland, Thomas Jefferson's baptist minister who heavily influenced the inclusion of the first amendment and Jefferson's views on separation of church and state.
Leland also said:
"Is conformity of sentiments in matters of religion essential to the happiness of civil government? Not at all. Government has no more to do with the religious opinions of men than it has with the principles of the mathematics. Let every man speak freely without fear--maintain the principles that he believes--worship according to his own faith, either one God, three Gods, no God, or twenty Gods; and let government protect him in so doing, i.e., see that he meets with no personal abuse or loss of property for his religious opinions. Instead of discouraging him with proscriptions, fines, confiscation or death, let him be encouraged, as a free man, to bring forth his arguments and maintain his points with all boldness; then if his doctrine is false it will be confuted, and if it is true (though ever so novel) let others credit it. When every man has this liberty what can he wish for more?"
Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.
