If the government is in the business of protecting sanctity with this kind of legislation, then in what way is it not "[making] law respecting an establishment of religion," an activity expressly prohibited under the First Amendment?
I hadn't considered that angle, that's a fair point.

But it doesn't detract from the point I'm making about listo and the police state enablers that now suddenly believe that we must protect ourselves from the government.
