Afghanistan has nothing on the US. The Republican legislative bodies across the country are becoming a homegrown Taliban issuing Sharia law here. In my study of US history, this nation was founded on religious freedom..escaping stringent, abusive restrictions on how to believe and what to believe. A constitution was written and adopted based on certain freedoms. If we are going to base our laws on religion and the sanctity of human life and ban abortion, then why ignore the fact that children and adults are murdered daily by assault rifles yet legislators refuse to act to restrict their use because of money in campaign pots. Sorry, the hypocrisy stinks to high heaven.
