The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church vigorously promotes its law. There are 5 laws according to our Church Teaching:

1. Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength.
2. Love your neighbor as yourself.
3. Love your enemies and bless those that persecute you.
4. Love one another as Christ loves the Church.
5. Whatsoever you would have others do unto you, do also unto them.

Selam

1. Love an imaginary absentee God who promises to send the vast majority to hell.
2. Love everyone and love no one in a special way. Not even family. Love murderers.
3. Love the one raping your daughter. Tell your daughter to also love him. (disgusting)
4. Jesus could not love any of the so called Christian sects today. If he loved the church then he would not have abandoned it.
5. Correct any of my poor thinking. Theists will not take correction as they are idol worshippers.

I take it you've never seen the religious-right?

They have watered down their laws.

I have yet to see them try to push laws to stone fornicators or unruly children.

Muslims promote Sharia law. Why do Christians not promote their law?

Some Muslim communities run with Sharia law. Other nations with a high Muslim population promote Sharia. It would seem from this phenomenon that Muslim law can be used to run a society as it does so in a few countries.

I know of no country that uses Christian or biblical law and have not heard of any Christian effort to have their law accepted in their nation.

This indicates that either Muslims are more religious than Christians, or Christians know that their laws would never be accepted as the law of the land.

Meanwhile, the vast majority of nations have rejected both sets of religious laws for a more secular approach to law and governance.

Briefly ---

Which of these three sets of laws do you think are superior and why?

Our laws are informed by Christian values and Tradition.. For example, we don't cut off a person's hand for stealing. The foundational concepts are from the 10 commandments.. We also have a concept of mercy..Catch up.

Ten commandments plagiarized from the Book of the Dead as well as other faiths.

Catch up.
Oh wait, you are not even in the running.

Separation of Church and State.
I actually agree with this and not just "church" but Synagogue and Mosque as well.

This may be taken the wrong way but I believe "christians" are the biggest obstruction many times  to mete out real justice in much of Western cultures these days.

Many religious people have a warped sense of reality.


And moral.

Perhaps it is because Christianity's corner stone is human sacrifice and the notion that adherents are to embrace and profit from the punishment of the innocent instead of the guilty.

Because we don't care enough, maybe in the future when things like Abortion and such take their great evil to the extreme you will have people caring but not today.

I know of some anti-abortion Christians who demanded that their daughters abort.

I do know of one set of parents that did adopt their grandchild.

In the U S, most abortions are of potential hereditary Christians.

Do I hear a hypocrite?

They promote their law with guns, explosives and beheadings.  We don't.  Also, you should define what you understand as "promote".
