Re: Traditional Catholicism beating up on ''progressive'' Catholicism in US

Even more specifically,legislation that restricts rights based on religion is part of establishing a national religion.

Couple of examples....one could say that "do not kill", part of the Judeo/Christian 10 Commandments is based on religion (true), so establishing law against murder is imposing religion. However, it is in the interest of an orderly society where citizens are enabled to live in peaceful freedom that people aren't running around killing each other willy-nilly without consequences. There are no national "blue laws", which exist to a greater or lesser extent (on Sundays, one can't order wine with dinner in South Carolina restaurants or buy beer before noon in NY, in Utah (until possibly very recently, IIRC they are looking to overturn the nation's most restrictive blue laws) all stores were closed) in states, but NOT nationally.
