The real war on women being waged by sick people liberals love to defend!

Many religious folk on these forums argue that the US is "a Christian nation", as justification for mingling religion with public and legal issues. Some go so far as to say that those who will not comply with and honor the Judeo-Christian principles upon which they claim our nation was founded, should leave or be subject to the full penalty of law.

How does such thinking look in reverse? Like this case in Sudan. Do the aforementioned religious folk support the Islamic principles upon which the Sudanese government is built, and honor the mixing of religion with public and civic policy there? If so, you must also support the death penalty for this fellow Christian woman who is violating the law of her country!

Either that, or oppose the unjust treatment of this woman as well as support a strong separation of Church and State as a fundamental principle of true "religious freedom".
