Death Penalty - How is this the the result of Christianity?
Jim Crow Law - According to Wikipedia it is a law that existed nearly 40 years ago and largely dealt with racial segregation? Can you elaborate on how Christianity influenced this? Or how this is relevant in current day?
Slavery - Elaborate. Also I said relevant laws. I'm fairly certain slavery in the US isn't a huge thing right now.
Contraception Laws - Eh, sure. That's one.
Sodomy Laws - I said relevant laws.
The halting of stem cell research - +1
the teaching of creationism in public schools/the forbidding of teaching evolution in some schools - both failures of US education system, it's laughable either of these things exist.
the forbidding of teaching evolution in some
schools - like, say, christian schools? Wouldn't that make sense?
school prayer - once again a short coming of your education system.
defunding of planned parenthood - I guess, I'm not an American so I don't understand it fully.
Barring women from gainful employment in churches - What? Women have no trouble gaining church employment, just not as priests in most denominations. Kind of like how church doctrine might forbid abortion or enforce chastity. If the woman doesn't like not being a priest, switch denominations.
Churches exempted from property taxes - eh, sure.
Liquour stores closed on sunday - most stores close on sunday. Nice try, atheism.
