Should We Restrict Religion
in Religion

By SwolliwSwolliw 164 Pts
Everyone has their vices, their naughty indulgences, their escape from life. I have mine.....I enjoy a few Peroni and / or Jose Cuervo at the end of the day although, thank God, I don't resort to religion. 
Alcohol, smoking, drugs, gambling and pornography are all restricted, usually by age or, in the case of drugs, by prescription.
Yet, what restrictions do we have on people indulging in religion? Zilch.

Alcohol, smoking, drugs, pornography and religion are all ok in small doses but when any of these vices become habitual or over-indulgent, we have problems.
In the case of religion, subjects who over-indulge become deluded and anti-social. Also, many of the morbid threats and morbid messages preached in religion can be very dangerous to the mental and physical health of some people; in particular, impressionable children.

So, should we not at least restrict the preaching of religion to over 18-year-olds?

    Christianity is no threat to civilizations, such as God Bless America.  Hedonism is a threat to civilization.  Christianity teaches kids to respect and obey laws and law enforcement officers.  Lack of respect for laws and law enforcement officers are currently ripping our country to shreds while democrat officials protect the lawless from law enforcement officers.

    True, God bless America is not how Christianity is a threat to civilization the idea of God can be proven as a principle that is not operating around religion only. However, the principle which is described as a threat is not negated completely by the term god's separation of its claimed state, Christianity like many religions and other beliefs can still pose a threat to civilization Christianities concern of interest is how it governs over forgiveness.

    Theocracy is completely un-American and runs contrary to the principals on which this nation was founded.

    Consider the first amendment:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    This alone makes theocracy a threat to America and American ideals, because church and state are to be separated, such that religion must have no say in political affairs.

    Now consider the first commandment:

    Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    If you follow this commandment, then you stand in opposition to the first amendment, because the first amendment guarantees that you can have any religion you want.

    If it is acceptable to say "god bless America" then other phrases, such as "Allah bless America", "Zeus bless America", "Cthulhu devour America", and "God is Dead, so America is great" are all perfectly acceptable.

    Christianity, is not American.

    "I believe that equating alcohol, smoking, drugs and gambling to religion is a false equivalency."

    So do I. In fact, religion is far more dangerous and deadly than the others.
    Many more people have died and continue to die from religion than those who die from alcohol, smoking, gambling, and drugs put together.
    Alcohol, smoking, drugs, and gambling do not make morbid threats of eternal torture if the victim wants to give up.
    Alcohol, smoking, drugs, and gambling do not teach their victims to hate and vilify those from minority groups.

    I would rather see a kid smoking a cigarette than watch him or her walk through the door of a Church.


  • @Swolliw

    Although I wish we could, restricting religion is impractical and unenforceable so it would not work... In effect, it would be like trying to restrict thoughts / beliefs, not a good path to take IMO... 

    The only good way to send religions the way of the dinosaurs, in museums where it belongs, is through education... There is no shortcuts... Teach science, philosophy and critical thinking early in school, and teach random people in your daily life by openly and publicly ridiculing religious ideas and other nonsensical beliefs (like flat earth) whenever you get the chance, combined that with a healthy display of regular blasphemous activities...  This is in my opinion, a more effective and moral way to go about eliminating religions from our societies...

    Those are fighting words, and completely anti-American. If you think government and religion should be intertwined, you are an enemy to the United States of America.

    Would you gladly let religion into politics?

    Do you think we need leaders who form the basis of their ideology on Christian teachings?

    If there was a political candidate who's policies matched yours perfectly, but they were atheist, would you not vote for them?

    Would you accept an Islamic Regime, like those in the middle east as the leaders of the USA?

    There is no ideology I despise more than theocracy. Religion has it's place in religion, but it has no place in government!

    They are not Christian laws that are held against Gay constitutional right it is the act of perjury that affect all people without prejudice.

    They are not Christian laws that are held against woman, abortion it is the inability that after 150 years plus woman have failed to create themselves equal under constitutional independence.

    The constitutional process can unite all gay men by the account of BiniVir as it can unite all lesbian woman as MulierFemina without prejudice.

    All woman can be created equal by a constitutional union as a united state described as female-specific amputation a wait for religious or Christian approval is not necessary.

    Religions are restricted it is the lies told by people which are the issue with the topic listed here.

    You are probably right there and I think we are beginning to see the disintegration of religion.
    I would say though that restricting products such as tobacco is having an impact and working despite being difficult to police. The thing is though that the restriction is sending a message to kids that it ain't trendy to smoke. Perhaps at least restricting religion to kids may send the message that having an imaginary friend is not very cool.

    Parents have the right to raise children how they'd like to. As long as they aren't being taught it in an abusive or destructive way, the government can't intrude on the personal lives of the people. However, I will admit that this isn't as black and white as I am making it out to be on the surface. Mainly because there's many cases when children feel no spiritual/emotional connection with the religion they are being thought but technically they are still forced to obey because they are children.
    To be honest, I feel like there's no right answer or a plausible method to enforce this. Because let's say we do prohibit religious teaching to children. How will we ensure that this is carried out? The only effective method would be to install government surveillance into the homes of the people but then that would be a gross overreach on restricting freedom. There's no perfect answer to this.

    I find it really annoying when Christians describe abortion as 'murder of the unborn', as if it's a bad thing. Describe it as murder if you want (not that I agree) but it is justified murder. If both parents change their mind about a pregnancy, then there is no reason why the unborn baby, who has no rights nor agency, I must remind you, should not be aborted.

    Christian freedom is the same as constitutional freedom it requires proof of no cost is assigned or held as self-value to remain true as a public claim as a grievance, else it is just liberty equal as independent self-indulgence. The duty to create all-woman equal falls on all religions equally as it has come to rest on all women.

    You need to read a Bible your god totally approves of abortion once he is doing it ......

    Hosea 9:11-16 Hosea prays for God’s intervention.  “Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.  Give them, 0 Lord: what wilt thou give?  Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. . .Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.” Clearly Hosea desires that the people of Ephraim can no longer have children.  God of course obeys by making all their unborn children miscarry.  Is not terminating a pregnancy unnaturally “abortion”?

    I agree. However, I fail to understand how God's word is relevant in abortion. If both parents agree that an abortion is the best course of action, the woman has an abortion, and that is that. Nowhere in this process is God relevant. Why should we care what God says about abortion? When the Bible was written, abortion was not even a thing!
    marke said:

    Yes, they are developing human beings. Abortion terminates this process of development. And after this process has been terminated, the fetus is medical waste.

    Not as annoying as it being true and little to nothing has been done to correct the invasion of privacy which had been described as unconstitutional crime 47 years ago.  Justified use of lethal force is only lethal force that has gone before the jury and court, or military type tribunal as a criminal charge.

    The pursuit of Happiness is a declaration of independence meaning basically it is still subject to constitutional separation for the public general welfare. Two men are legally bound as a private life long partnership till death can be made under the term Binivir, women by the binding term MulierFemina, objections?

    There are health issues associated with alternative sexual practices.  AIDS, for example, was first designated by the acronymn GRID because it began as a predominately homosexual disease.  Here is something I found interesting:

    The Gay Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA) web site describes the following detrimental effects associated with same-sex sexual practice: higher rates of HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, depression/anxiety, hepatitis, sexually transmitted illnesses (anal papilloma/HPV, gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia), certain cancers, alcohol abuse, tobacco use, eating disorders, and (in subsets) obesity.10

    In February 2009 a Canadian GLBT group filed a human rights complaint against the Canadian government and Health Canada asserting that the Canadian GLBT population had poor statistics for life expectancy (twenty years short of standard), suicide, alcohol and illicit drug/substance abuse, cancer, infectious disease, HIV/AIDS, and depression. This is noteworthy in that it challenges the assertion of those claiming the negative health statistics attributed to individuals of GLBT orientation are merely a function of the lack of acceptance of such individuals, and that said statistics would improve with their increased acceptance. Canada provides a highly supportive government, celebration from liberal churches, and a public coerced into silence by hate speech codes, yet the poor health indicators for the GLBT populace remains. This demonstrates that acceptance and affirmation of same-sex sexuality is not the promised antidote for the problems inherent in GLBT sexuality.

    To reiterate, The Gay Report, the Gay Lesbian Medical Association, and the Canadian GLBT coalition’s human rights complaint are sources from within the GLBT population

    Good news, bad news.

    Bad news first. You have been fired/ legally discharged from your religious declaration of independence for all that is healthy.

    Good news I do not need to know when someone is gay or lesbian as they do not produce citizens of any country. As any two men or two a woman can by donation of human biological material become parents it is nice to know there is no longer a legal prejudice to prevent any religion from declaring them partners in the creation of a citizen of the nation hosting the process. Be it in international areas such as oceans and outers space or within the borders of nations as foreign diplomats. Legally bound till death do they part Binivir and MulierFemina. Isn’t that great? You need never worry again about the invasion of privacy as it is connected to sexual behavior.

    The Constitution:  Congress shall make no laws which force a Christian to nabandon his religious convictions.

    Homosexuals and their untaught supporters:  No Constitutional right shall be interpreted in a way which infringes on the right of homosexuals to force others to accept their corrupted lifestyle.
