Separation of Church and State: Misinformation and Hypocrisy

I think I should really clarify here, fairness is an ethical construct rather than a moral one. In general, a good law covers ethical dilemmas in a way that minimizes harm and maximizes benefits for all parties, while a bad law simply pushes moral judgement onto an unwilling party without any ethical consideration. To wit, sharia laws (such as the prohibition of gay marriage) are harmful to society, while ethical laws (prohibition of jaywalking) are beneficial to society.

No sooner had I expressed my differences with the president’s announcement supporting same-sex “marriage” than a young man named Collin posted on my Facebook page, “You have to leave your stupid religious dogma behind when talking about state and national issues. You are basing your objection to homosexual marriage on the Bible which would be violating the American principle of separation of church and state.”

Not only is this the opposite of what our Founding Fathers intended, but it is also completely hypocritical, since Collin voiced no objection to the president pointing to his religious beliefs in support of same-sex “marriage.”
