to morph it into or quantify it by the Bible?
Let's simply replace the constitution with the Bible.
God gives us a choice whether to follow him or not. He defined what constitutes sin.
Our founding fathers recognize a Creator but did not specify that we can only have liberties that are not sinful according to the Bible. If that was their intent, they would have been very specific.
They simply mandated that government can not become the church and rule as a Theocracy yet we have many that demand our government become exactly that, a Theocracy.
Besides, if we are going to wrap the Bible around the constitution, whose interpretation are we going to use as law?
You can not have liberty if you force others to accept your religious interpretation of the Bible. Also when you favor taking one's freedoms away because they don't follow your interpretation of the Bible, you are playing God and breaking the first commandment.
