Politics and Religion

Seems like politics is full of hot button issues these days that are considered ‘moral’ issues. Abortion, gay marriage, pornography, drinking age, etc..

Sometimes I catch some heat from friends and family members for not being more fanatical about these issues. This quote neatly sums up exactly what I think about any nanny law that attempts to address these laws.

Every man must give account of himself to God, and therefore every man ought to be at liberty to serve God in a way that he can best reconcile to his conscience. If government can answer for individuals at the day of judgment, let men be controlled by it in religious matters; otherwise, let men be free.
John Leland – Right of Conscience Inalienable.
