I'm not going to stray into a religious discussion, but I'll just say I'm grateful that the government is here to protected us from those that know the "one and only true way".

I personally keep out of tobacco and majority war machine companies...there's plenty of other investments to be made...can't control S&P minor holdings, just not direct choices.
