Why Morality is the Only Thing We Should Legislate

“You can’t legislate morality!” is a common battle cry today. It’s thought to be a quintessentially American idea, even though the Founding Fathers never expressed such a sentiment. Nor did the early Americans who would unabashedly enforce a biblically based code of morality in their localities, both via social pressure and governmental laws, with transgressors sometimes spending time in stocks — or worse. No, our common battle cry is a modern idea, and one of modernism. It also betrays a fundamental, and dangerous, misunderstanding of law’s nature.

In reality, the only thing we should legislate is morality. The only other option is legislating whims or immorality.

There can be no such thing as a separation of morality and state. That is, unless we want to regress to man’s default, the immoral state. ...

Aren't there more Catholic Democrats than Republicans? Isn't the Dems who want to get rid of the death penalty?
Thanks for your service by the way. Happy Memorial Day.
GSMontana, You will note, unless in your Texas, who went sensible about the injection thing. One drug can put these mad dogs down just as painlessly as a 3 drug cocktail. Most Republican governors will ring their hands and say woe is us, we can't get the 3 drugs to send these killers off in style. Oh, and electrocution is probably the most humane way of doing things, but of course the GOP Supreme Court put an end to that -- the one with all the Romists on it.

Catholics are happy to work with any party on the issue of Capital punishment, including atheist liberals, to get their way.

G'day Allie, pray you are well.
As can be, of course.
I agree, with you, but I believe we're at a time in history, where what you and I see as moral, is at enmity with the law makers, the last 40 odd years murder and perversion , divorce, have all become acceptable.
So murder,robbery , the obvious ones they sought of, try and punish, but they way things are, anarchy probably will abound,
Until our Lord comes.
God bless mate

--Only-- Allie, if the majority of people think they are good laws. People get away with murder now, thanks to the Romish-Republican axis. Very few deserving people are being executed by the state, but living in comfort, and waiting to die of old age.
R.C. Sproul wrote:
...the institution of capital punishment was not given as a deterrent but as an act of justice. What is the biblical rationale? Capital punishment is instituted very early in the Old Testament—before Moses, before Sinai, before the Ten Commandments, back in the days of Noah, where God says, “If by man, man’s blood is shed, by man shall his blood be shed.” That’s not a prediction. The structure of the language there is an imperative; it is a command....

Remember Satan's Emissary, the Pope doesn't accept that!

Very good article to balance(correct maybe) the spirit of the age.

This is not talking about our getting saved, but rather protecting society. MacArthurs comments below are about getting saved, this is about governing society. Different issues.

The government is legislating morality Unfortunately, it's not the morality of Judeo-Christian tradition.
John MacArthur wrote:
Morality saves no one. Morality does not command the blessing of God. In Romans 2:11 and 12 it says, "For there is no partiality with God." That sounds like a sort of hopeful statement at first, "There's no partiality with God." But listen to this, "But all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law."

You know what that says? It says whatever might be your relationship to the law of God doesn't matter to Him. It doesn't matter to Him because you can't keep the law to His satisfaction because, as we learn in Galatians 3, if you break the law in one point, you've broken the whole law. Romans 10 Paul said that the Jews not understanding the righteousness of God go about to establish their own righteousness. And he says they have a zeal for God but not according to knowledge.
