The more monotheistic influence that has crept into government has dissolved the concept of debate and plurality. Based on a mono-theistic religious ideology you are morally prohibited from allowing another viewpoint on the question of "Who is God?". Thus, if you think you are legislating for the "cause" of your religious ideology, you cannot even engage in a discussion with someone else on the subject because you are pre-judged.
Fundamentally, a monotheistic religion is based on the ideological base paradigm of dictate and dogma. Not discussion and compromise.
