It’s currently the most blogged about piece of legislation. What are your thoughts on the Bible bill?

  1. In my own humble opinion the whole thing seemless a useless and worthless endeavor…what would it accomplish?

  2. Wait, the Bible provided the basis for our freedom of religion that allows Muslims, Hindus, and even atheists to vocalize their own beliefs? Huh. I didn’t see that coming.

  3. Actually, Seth, insofar as one believes that the “Two Kingdoms” is a doctrine derived from Scripture, it makes perfect sense to say that the freedom of religion is based on the Bible.

  4. Yes, but were the founding fathers really Two Kingdoms theologians? I don’t really remember that being the case, though I could be mistaken. Granted, Salem was ninety years earlier, but at least at that point, people were pointing to Scripture as a reason not to tolerate other faiths. Tolerance, it seems, only stretched to include other Christian sects.

  5. Yeh, I’m not sure. I guess I read your comment less historically, and more theoretically. The Bible (under a certain reading), in being introduced to America, provides the basis for our freedom of religion.
