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.

Nonsense.

Guess you think that unless the govt makes every person become a born again Christian it should not have the authority to enforce moral laws against murder, stealing etc?

Of course not, and if you'd read my post more carefully you'd understand that I was arguing just the opposite.

As I said, the mandate of government is not to get rid of every - or any - evil just for the sake of doing so, but to protect society, which results in evil being curtailed.
