We are a society.

We are not a ‘christian’ society. Nor a Jewish society nor an atheist society.

We are a society.

Religion is your belief…not everyone’s law.

We ALL have a Constitution…..You have YOUR Bible.

“[O]ur right to the free exercise of religion is co-equal to our right to life,” according to the campaign website of Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican who won his party’s nomination to the United States Senate on Tuesday’.

‘Here’s a screenshot of the relevant part of Sasse’s website’:

‘His proposed rule — that government cannot require someone to act counter to their religious beliefs “under any circumstances” — would mean that literally any law could be ignored by someone who held a religious belief counter to that law’.

‘According to National Geographic, for example, “[h]undreds, if not thousands, of women are murdered by their families each year in the name of family ‘honor,’” and while this practice “goes across cultures and across religions,” some of the perpetrators of honor killings are motivated by their religious faith. Under Sasse’s formulation of religious liberty, a person who killed his own sister because he believed he was under a religious obligation to do so would be immune from prosecution for murder’.
