Do you honestly think i implied that all laws with any religious background could not ipso facto also be considered to be crimes in a secular society? Were not talking about crimes like rape and murder or charging interest for that matter....were talking about laws that dont involve actual victims and where the religious underpinnings form the entire rationale for the entire basis for there presence in a secular republic that has no use for them. But by all means, keep fighting the bigot's argument if you like....
I was just pointing out that there are some obvious flaws in your rhetoric, particularly including the fact that modern libertarianism was born well after the invention of legal codes and the writing of the United States Constitution. You continually suggest that libertarian ideology creates some sort of actual curb on federal, state, and local government authority, when in fact it creates none. It is just another idea, equal to Ed's ideas, when it comes to our democratic (fine, republican) political system. However, you seem to react poorly whenever any person refuses to wholly adopt your ideologically puritanical viewpoint. I am merely defending Ed's right to disagree with you, because you're succeeding, amazingly, in making him look like the victim here.
So you're cool with polygamy/polyandry, right? No victims there. Just checking.
