No. My view there is good reason to protect people from untoward displays of immodesty in public, to preserve the character of a decent society. But we should have not have a care for what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home. The government should stay out of the bedroom but aggressively police the public square. Then we should not fear the charge of hypocrisy being leveled against Republicans. Whatever two people do behind closed doors is between them and God. Whatever people do in front of others that is immoral is the concern of society.
