No it sorta doesn't. In fact, it very much emboldens it. Whose God are you talking about? The Indian's God(s)? The Muslim God? The God of Rah? The Gods of Asgard?
We AREN'T a theocracy, we're a Republic built out of law. When you start advocating that people start breaking the laws of man for the laws of their God, then you might as rename Washington, Tehran.
No one in THIS country gets to break the laws of the people out of some notion of moral superiority.
righto. I think the very concept of "law" -- and certainly as it was understood by the founders -- was not rooted in pantheism or moral equivalence.
There was a particular God who inspired the Judeo-Christian structure of western civilization, and you apparently are content to ignore or deny that fact, even as you benefit from it.
Whose God were our forefathers speaking of when they wrote "endowed by the Creator" into the documents upon which our laws are based?
Roeder did what he thought was morally right. You obviously disagree, but I'm not sure your god (be it human reason or whatever) has a superior claim to morality.
Roeder will surely pay the consequences under the law. But it also beyond reasonable dispute that his act saved the lives of innocent children who would have been butchered in the womb in the most savage manner by Roeder. If you find Roeder's murder heinous and immoral, at least be consistent and find Tiller's murders of tens of thousands of the most innocent heinous and immoral.
