Using the State to stifle Choice in matters of adults and their relationship with vice destroys the very concept of morality...

With all due respect, that's absurd and the man you quote is a moron.

The Bible tells us that God Himself gives govt the authority to enforce moral codes.

Probably because if left to the individual it would lead to anarchy and the disintegration of society.

Ah, no. Governments are to be respected partly because, as a by-product of keeping society intact, they curtail the ability of the dredges to do evil.

If God wanted governments to fully enforce every moral 'code,' then the government would have the responsibility of overseeing Christian evangelizing - an idea not found in the Bible, at least not to my knowledge.

This Country was founded on the principle that government authority comes from the people. Individuals do have control of the government by their votes. It sounds like the form of government laid out in the U.S. Constitution is not to your liking. Maybe the taliban style of enforcing morality is more your style?

Anyone who think this law was passed to enforce moral code is either hopelessly naive or hopelessly trusting. This was strictly about $$$$$$$$$$$.
