During the vice presidential debate last night, Paul Ryan was asked to explain how his and Governor Romney's beliefs would impact their decisions about abortion. Mr. Ryan replied that their personal religious beliefs would, indeed, dictate their decisions, implying that he believes they have the right to impose theocratic rule upon the nation. While Ryan spoke about protecting the rights of the church to dictate how all Americans should live, he made absolutely no mention of the rights of individual Americans to live free from Mormon and Catholic religious laws. Joe Biden, on the other hand, stated outright that he did not think it was his or President Obama's right or duty to impose their personal religious beliefs upon others, especially upon those that don't share these beliefs (such as non-Catholic Christians, Jews, etc.).
The American people must decide whether they want the theocratic, sharia-style religious law that Romney and Ryan intend to impose upon the United States, which disregards individual personal beliefs, rights and freedoms, or whether they want an administration that will continue to value and protect every American's personal beliefs, rights and freedoms.
