Quote of the Day 2

“When you have a government that prefers a certain moral code derived from a certain religion and that moral code turns into legislation to suit one certain religious point of view [you have a right-wing fascist state].”

-Frank Zappa, 1986

Zappa’s point is that, while government has an obligation to support certain moral behavior that facilitates a free, democratic society, when legislators pass laws based on specific theology, they violate the country’s founding principles.
