So the founder of Domino's Pizza wants a Catholic town full of laws that mesh with Catholic teaching. And he's willing to put his money where his mouth is. And of course, all sorts of people are up in arms about constitutional rights and separation of church and state, and whatever else makes them itch.
But really, what's the big deal? Maybe this is the wave of the future. Instead of having everyone's lives dictated by one massive federal government, with everyone arguing over what should be legal and not, why can't we all live our own separate lives. If you want to live in a town that bans abortion and condoms, go live there and leave the rest of us alone. Should I really care if the people in Catholicville ban the sale of pornography? Only if they try to ban it where I live. I thought that was the whole idea behind federalism. Limited federal powers, more local control. Red staters can have their sharia style laws and blue staters can live and let live. You're grow up wherever you're parents live, then come 18, you move to which ever state's, or city's, laws best suit your lifestyle.
I don't know--there's a lot to think about here and I don't have time to flesh it out. But I'm just so sick of the right trying to force their religious laws on everyone and the left trying to strip religion away from everyone. Maybe we just need to agree to disagree and go our separate ways before we end up in all out civil war.
