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.
Amen! (And Barr said nothing contradictory to that - not that you said or implied he did.)
