Could a student wear a " Gay rocks" shirt ?
Romans 1: 21 but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools "Because without it, there can be no society. That is a legitimate reason that applies equally to all. " Its is legitimate reason because God exists and has determined it to be so, not your government, nor your human reason, or any other idol god men have submitted themselves to. At their best these thing can recognize what God has created and predetermined, at their worst you and others will think you can have some godless morality invented out of nothingness.. and your civilization will fall into moral debauchery until God destroys it.. Romans 1:26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is [r]unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing [s]indecent acts and receiving in [t]their own persons the due penalty of their error. Nothing in your world view can account for why good is good or why any such thing as good should exist. Your worldview is just as "religious" as mines I would say more so...I can acknowledge my presuppositions come from God yours come from nowhere..in fact asking where they come from is no allowed ..your presuppositions are too holy to be questioned. It was nice speaking to you. God bless.
My bad, but you got the point I was making we live in a civilization that has a presumption that we have rights because this particular civilization was influenced by Christianity.... despite whatever it is now it is still carrying many of its presupposition about morality and ethics from Christianity. When this civilization makes its full transition to eliminate the Christian worldview from all its laws and thinking... it will be like the other civilizations..not as great as it once was. I am being very honest..if you self admit government can create moral and immoral categories ex nihilo.. then it can do what God does...so its like a god. why wouldn't I call such a thing a god?
I agree by the way... my worldview gives a reason for why the government should restrain harm...God created human government for the purpose of executing justice and punishing the immoral Romans 13:4. Why according to your thinking should harm be restrained? If now civil law can only be based on secularism.. because for some unexplained reason that's moral...on what bases is it moral to restrain immorality? Not to mention why does moral or immoral exist as categories in the first place!
Then be logically consistent...your worldview should not be used to determine civil law nor should anyone else's..so there should be no civil law. "My world view does not prevent you from doing anything except harming another." And who is going to determine when I am harming another ?.. Your god, your god is final authority and I am obligated to obey it. Also according to your worldview you are preventing people who you consider to be "religious" from setting civil law..only your worldview is to be used to determiner civil law. ......How tolerant "Says the US Government." Again your god, it has inherent moral power that all must recognize by faith. ... very tolerant Good for Jefferson, but I do not think he based that statement on your worldview, if he believed the government to be a god like entity he would have led a campaign to return to the rule of the crown. "But again Natural Right can be derived at by pure reason" Thanks to Christianity for producing people like Aquinas so that we could have a civilization based on such presumptions.
And on what base should one thing be determined moral and another immoral in US law?
Actually no I do not believe sex with children or animals should be legal because it is immoral and it is immoral because it violates God's law, God is my finial authority to dictate morals. ..i.e the Christian worldview the same worldview that western civilization got its ideas of sexual morals from. The question is why is it immoral according to secularism?
"natural Rights we are all born with" "The needs of a society to function." How do you know any such thing exists? Your presuppositions are based on other presumptions! What makes your never ending stack of presumptions more authoritative then a religious persons or opposing presumptions of someone you consider non-religious?? What if I do not want to follow the morality of your worldview?
"Civil laws should be based on one person from preventing harm to another or a legitimate interest of Government function." Says whom? Based on what?
Then what worldview is the bases of civil law?
