I get all kinds of e-mails and comments. One constant theme among my social “conservative” friends runs something like this: “If we don’t keep all the laws we have and especially the ones targeting rope smokers civilization will break down and the child molesters will be out in force.”
Uh. Wouldn’t that be “Law worship”? And doesn’t that violate the First Commandment of the sacred text? For those of you unfamiliar with the text I could post it in the original Hebrew. But few read that language anymore (pity). So let me give you the short version translation: You shall have no other gods before me.
There was some Jewish guy around 2,000 years ago who complained about law worship I think. What was his name? Give me some time. I’m sure it will come to me.
