Our laws are based on Biblical law, whether we like it or not

Such is the state of history.

While the government has no problem condemning a citizen for taking the life of another...

The government considers itself above the First Commandment.

There is no way around that fact.

If our governments were non-religious this would be a different matter.. But they are religious, in every oath - every speech - in our currency - in our courts - in our holidays.
