Trying to let others define you.
Godless radical Leftists, some masquerading as libertarians, claim the Constitution demands the destruction of the moral basis of the American culture that seeks to preserve the Constitution. Ya cant make this stuff up!
I use the ‘Islam’ standard.
If I wouldn’t want the government doing it to promote Islam (or Satanism), I don’t want the government doing it to promote even the very values I hold dearest.
NEVER give the government any more power or influence- under the best and most noble of men and for the best and most noble of purposes- than you would want it to have under the worst of men for the worst of purposes.
There would be not problem with a government that promoted or protected *MY* religious values, but I want a government that is utterly incapable of promoting the foulest, most Islamist or Satanic values. THAT is why the more limited a government is, the better.
Barr’s speech was great - with, of course, not a whiff of theocracy: https://www.justice.gov/opa/speech/attorney-general-william-p-barr-delivers-remarks-law-school-and-de-nicola-center-ethics
They know exactly what Barr meant.
Yet the roots of Blue Laws (mandatory Sunday store closings) and prohibition were almost entirely theocratic. As are anti-gambling and prostitution laws.
