I don’t think I’ve ever heard or read anything by radio-host & columnist Andrew Tallman before. But, I was impressed with his current article at Townhall.com. Tallman clearly explains not only the hypocrisy of those who complain about those on the political Right trying to “legislate morality” but also why legislating morality is OK. In fact, as Tallman says, “Simply put, we legislate morality because it’s the only way to get some people to behave.”.
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard/read this clarification about the character and purpose of (good) laws, but it is a good reminder and well done. I could say more, but it would be better if you just click on the link and read the article. You will be glad you did.
