1st Amendment. Re-read it.
As for public nudity... Everyone is naked under their clothes. Leave it up to each community and vote with your dollars.
Personally, I wouldn't visit such places. Nothing there I want to see.

Not even if the Victoria’s Secret ladies decide to go on parade? :)
The Bible does not force anything but the moral law on unbelievers.
It works the same way ancient Israel was commanded to treat “strangers”.
Our laws against murder, theft, etc., are based on the Old Testament moral law. Pre-American European law - the idea of what’s right and what’s wrong - was based on the Bible. This is why sodomy laws were called sodomy laws, because that’s the word the King James Bible uses. The founders did NOT discuss what the moral law of America would be, i.e., should we make a crime and what we should not make a crime from a secular standpoint. In that day in Europe and America the Bible was the generally accepted root source for understanding what is right and wrong.
The guys who wrote the Constitution corporately came up with this open-ended idea on religion which only worked until the selection of elected leaders started to go into the toilet, which was very early on.
1st Amendment is too vague and allows Christianity to be attacked. So it is being attacked.
Post-WWII we started to pick and choose to legalize some acts, such as sodomy, and murder of unborn children.
Just because a majority wants to make something legal, that does not nullify the effect of the moral law given in God’s Law Word the Bible.
There is no middle ground on religion even though secular humanists maintain that there is. This is being demonstrated now as the secular humanist government turns on Christianity - and Jews who are practicing - in favor of what self-serving politicians see as an up-and-coming group, islam. A nation is either Christian or it’s not. Jewish or it’s not. Muslim or it’s not. Secular humanist or it’s not. If it doesn’t say what it bases it’s law on, it’s secular humanist; it bases it on what the power struggles between people result in. Dems in charge, abortion is legal. Repubs in charge, abortion frowned upon. Believers in charge, abortion illegal.
This is why, IMHO, the real battle is for hearts and minds of the population.
IMHO, it’s the truth that sets us free, and lying to ourselves that sins of the flesh and other sins are acceptable does not set us free, it makes us a slave to those sins.
The Bible tells us that civil government has “the power of the sword” to restrain evil. If it doesn’t use it righteously evil is not restrained.
We have a Moslem President, so...
